An indispensible, step-by-step guide to working through behavioural problems
In this groundbreaking book, Alan Kazdin, the director of the Yale Parenting Center and Child Conduct Clinic at Yale University, distils three decades of work with children into a step-by-step method for changing difficult behaviour-one backed up by the most long-term and respected research devoted to any therapy for children.Shattering decades' worth of accumulated myths about tantrums, time-outs, punishment and more, Parenting Your Defiant Child leads parents through every step of the Kazdin Method in action: how to use tone of voice, when and how to touch, how to lead your child in 'practice' sessions, how to involve non-offending siblings, and more. The programme is temporary but the results are permanent, and it's a method thatworks for a full range of situations for children of all ages - from milestones of normal development like potty training and tantrums to clinically severe behaviours like fighting, stealing, and lying. Parenting Your Defiant Child is a lifesaving handbook for parents of children who are occasionally, or too often, 'out of control'.
From sibling battles to tantrums in the supermarket, there are solutions for disruptive behaviours across all age groups - JUNIOR
