For every time you heard that kids dont come with a manual. With this is the book that most represents the manual. It gives wonderful insight to communicating with your child to reach a win-win outcome. Putting the concept into practice will take some time to get right and no doubt different complex scenarios may not apply, but using the basic principle should help any parent.
Bought because grandaughter has been having trouble controlling her temper. She's a tall 8 year old and when she exploded she would often lash out. And we were getting extremely worried about her behaviour. We thought we had tried everything - time out, naughty step, reward, punishment, charts etc etc etc!
But almost as soon as we started using the techniques, clearly explained and with lots of examples, in this book, we saw a change. She still loses her temper occasionally, don't we all! But she is now learning to control it, without exploding. This makes her a much happier child, and her younger sister and the rest of the family much, much happier too.
If you are having problems with a child with an explosive temper - buy this book, understand your child's behaviour and learn how to deal with it effectively!
I would highly recommend this book, it all makes total sense. It treats children as people with good intentions, who just need some help overcoming their frustrations. It teaches Collaborative Problem Solving, which is very doable.
This publication is one of the most important books I have ever purchased! If you have contact, as a parent, guardian, teacher or therapist with 'explosive kids', this book will make a positive impact. Highly recommended.
