A groundbreaking approach to understanding and parenting
children who frequently exhibit severe fits of temper and other
intractable behaviours, from a distinguished clinician and pioneer
in this field, now updated to include the most recent research.
Almost everyone knows an explosive child, one whose frequent,
severe fits of temper leave his or her parents standing helpless in
their fear, frustration, and guilt. Most of these parents have
tried everything--reasoning, behaviour modification, therapy,
medication--but to no avail. They wonder if their child is deviant
or just plain bad.
Dr. Ross Greene has worked with thousands of explosive children,
and he has good news: these kids aren't bad, and neither are their
parents. Rather, explosive children suffer from a physiological
deficiency in frustration tolerance and flexibility. Throughout
this compassionate book, Dr. Greene demonstrates why traditional
treatments don't work for these kids and offers a new conceptual
framework for understanding their behaviour, along with new
language to describe it. He explains the latest neuroscience
findings about the importance of flexibility, and, most important,
he shows parents specific, practical ways they can recognize the
signs of an impending explosion, defuse tension, and reduce
frustration levels for the entire family.
For parents, psychologists, educators and ADHD groups.
In addition to the scientific foundation of the book, Greene
addresses parents in practical ways that will help show results in
difficult children and their effect on families.
