A New Approach to Understanding and Parenting Easily Frustrated, Chronically Inflexible Children.
We've all seen an "explosive child": one who exhibits intense temper outbursts, sudden mood swings, extreme noncompliance, and verbal and physical aggression. For parents who seem to have tried everything, finally there is hope.
In this groundbreaking book, Dr Ross Greene provides a practical, compassionate approach to treating these children, who may be diagnosed with any of various psychiatric disorders, including oppositional-defiant disorder, attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), bipolar disorder, and Tourette's disorder.
Drawing upon recent advances in the neurosciences and his extensive experience working with challenging children, Dr Greene explains that they are not willfully destructive. Their behaviours stem from brain-based deficits in two critical developmental skills: flexibility and frustration tolerance. With Dr Greene's sensitive, expert advice, you will find ways to defuse explosive episodes, reduce tension, and build a warm, lasting relationship with your child.
