Throughout this compassionate, insightful, and practical book, Dr Ross Greene provides a new conceptual framework for understanding their difficulties, based on research in the neurosciences.
A groundbreaking approach to understanding and parenting children who frequently exhibit severe fits of temper and other intractable behaviors, from a distinguished clinician and pioneer in this field.
What is an explosive child?
A child who responds to routine problems with extreme frustration as in crying, screaming, swearing, kicking, hitting, biting, spitting, destroying property, and worse.
A child whose frequent, severe outbursts leave his or her parents feeling frustrated, scared, worried, and desperate for help.
Most of these parents have tried everything – reasoning, explaining, punishing, sticker charts, therapy, medication but to no avail.
They cannot figure out why their child acts the way he or she does.
They wonder why the strategies that work for other kids do not work for theirs.
And they do not know what to do instead.
