Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"This is a superb and extremely helpful book. Readers negotiating the icy roads and blizzard-like conditions of raising a defiant child will find that this book shifts them into four-wheel drive. The advice in these pages not only makes the road less treacherous--it helps parents drive it with confidence, and helps the whole family arrive at their destination happier and wiser for the trip they took. Barkley draws upon a wealth of experience with real families, as well as a thorough command of the latest research and scientific findings, to create an easy-to-read, practical, immensely informative work." --Edward M. Hallowell, MD, coauthor of Answers to Distraction

"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

    Your Defiant Child

    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!
