Every child has "ornery" moments, but more than 1 in 20 American children exhibit behavioral problems that are out of control. For readers struggling with an unyielding or combative child, this book offers the understanding and guidance they need. Drawing on Dr. Russell A. Barkley's many years of work with parents and children, the book clearly explains what causes defiance, when it becomes a problem, and how it can be resolved. The book's comprehensive eight-step program stresses consistency and cooperation, promoting changes through a system of praise, rewards, and mild punishment. Readers learn tools and strategies for establishing clear patterns of dicsipline, communicating with children on a level they can understand, and reducing family stress overall. Filled with helpful charts, questionnaires, and checklists, this book helps parents get their child's behavior back on track and restore harmony in the home.
"This book distills the wisdom of an approach that Dr. Barkley and others have been developing for more than 20 years. As a school psychologist, I have used this program since 1990 in a group setting with over 1,300 parents, the majority of whom found it beneficial. Finally, parents have a manual to help them implement the program at home. It is supportive, nonjudgmental, and filled with practical suggestions and true-to-life anecdotes. All parents who are concerned about their children's behavior should read this book." --Frederick L. Quici, NCSP, Alta Loma School District, Alta Loma, California
"This book provides step-by-step, practical help for parents of children who are difficult to manage. It affords new hope to families desiring a more peaceful and fulfilling life together. Invaluable for parents, teachers, and clinicians." --Sylvia B. Rimm, PhD, author of Dr. Sylvia Rimm's Smart Parenting, Director, Family Achievement Clinic, MetroHealth Medical Center, Cleveland, Ohio
Since all children have the ability to be 'defiant', and as the parent of 4 sons and the grandparent of 1 grandson, I highly recommend this book to every parent, grandparent, and anyone working with children! The authors give information that is helpful and useful to both new and experienced childcare providers. A 'how to' end the power struggles and empower yourself and the child! And it works!
