Some can be clingy, shy, negative, whiny, and picky. Most are impossible at bedtime, mealtimes, or in public places. Tantrums, even "meltdowns", are common. But even the worst behavior may not be your child's fault — or yours, either!<P>HOW TO HELP — AND COPE WITH — THE DIFFICULT CHILD<P>Dr. Stanley Turecki, one of the nation's most respected experts on children and discipline — and himself the father of a once difficult child — offers compassionate and practical advice to parents of hard-to-raise children. Based on his experience with thousands of families, his step-by-step approach shows you how to: <P>Identify your child's temperament, using a ten-point checklist to pinpoint specific difficulties<BR>-- Manage typical conflicts expertly — with kindness and firmness<BR>-- Make discipline more effective, so you punish much less<BR>-- Get support from schools, doctors, and other parents<BR>-- Understand ADHD, ADD, and other diagnoses, and decide if medication is right for your child<BR>-- Accept and respect your child as an individual<BR>-- Make the most of the creativity and positive potential of your difficult child
