Publisher Comments:

A groundbreaking approach to understanding and parenting children who frequently exhibit severe fits of temper and other intractable behaviours, from a distinguished clinician and pioneer in this field, now updated to include the most recent research.

Almost everyone knows an explosive child, one whose frequent, severe fits of temper leave his or her parents standing helpless in their fear, frustration, and guilt. Most of these parents have tried everything—reasoning, behaviour modification, therapy, medication—but to no avail. They wonder if their child is deviant or just plain bad.

Dr. Ross Greene has worked with thousands of explosive children, and he has good news: these kids aren't bad, and neither are their parents. Rather, explosive children suffer from a physiological deficiency in frustration tolerance and flexibility. Throughout this compassionate book, Dr. Greene demonstrates why traditional treatments don't work for these kids and offers a new conceptual framework for understanding their behaviour, along with new language to describe it. He explains the latest neuroscience findings about the importance of flexibility, and, most important, he shows parents specific, practical ways they can recognize the signs of an impending explosion, defuse tension, and reduce frustration levels for the entire family.

  • For parents, psychologists, educators and ADHD groups.
  • In addition to the scientific foundation of the book, Greene addresses parents in practical ways that will help show results in difficult children and their effect on families.

Synopsis:

The groundbreaking “New Approach for Understanding and Parenting Easily Frustrated, Chronically Inflexible Children,” The Explosive Child by Ross W. Greene, Ph.D., has been updated and revised to include the latest research. Dr. Greene is Associate Clinical Professor in the Department of Psychiatry, Harvard Medical School and the originator of the Collaborative Problem Solving approach to the treatment and study of children with social, emotional, and behavioral challenges. With The Explosive Child he offers an indispensable helping hand to parents who may feel overwhelmed by having to deal with children whose reactions to everyday stimuli may be far more extreme than normal.

Synopsis:

An explosive child's behavior — severe noncompliance, temper outbursts, and verbal or physical aggression — often leaves parents feeling frustrated, guilt-ridden, and overwhelmed. Dr. Ross Greenewill help you gain the confidence and knowledge you need to handle these situations competently and lovingly. In The Explosive Child, now fully updated and revised, he provides a sensitive, practical approach to helping your child at home and at school, including:
  • Understanding the factors that contribute to your child's explosions
  • Reducing hostility and antagonism between the child and adults
  • Anticipating situations in which the child is most likely to explode
  • Focusing less on reward and punishment and more on communication and collaborative problem-solving
  • Helping your child develop the skills to be more flexible and handle frustration more adaptively

With Dr. Greene's practical, expert advice, you and your child will forge a new relationship based on communication and mutual respect.

Synopsis:

Now updated with the latest developments in this field, this guide for parents of easily frustrated, chronically inflexible children lays out a practical approach to helping children at home and school, and shows parents how to handle their child's difficulties competently and with compassion.

Changing perspective is a hard job, and this book asks us to change the usual thinking of Blame the Child or Blame the parent. The montra is "Children do well if they can." I use the Collaborative Problem Solving with many of my parents and their children. It has proven useful to many families. It is not a "magic bullet" and takes hard work to be successful. Thid book gives hope to parents, teachers and adults dealing with really difficult children.
