Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Some children act out, argue, disobey, and throw temper tantrums more frequently than others. If you’re parenting one of these high-maintenance kids, this book is for you.

Clinical child psychologist C. Drew Edwards doesn’t just tell you what to do with a hard-to-handle kid. He also explains why some children are especially aggressive and disruptive—because understanding is key to helping them become responsible, competent, and content.

He spells out specific strategies for building a solid, positive relationship with your child—and ways to take care of yourself (parenting a difficult child can be stressful!).

And he encourages you to become an Authoritative Parent: balancing nurturance and support with structure and direction, blending positive and negative feedback, including children in the discipline process, using family problem solving, and guiding your child toward greater responsibility.

Packed with practical information and real-life examples, written with authority and compassion, this is a book you’ll turn to often for advice, insight, and good news: Parenting a hard-to-handle child isn’t an impossible task. These strategies really work.

Synopsis:

Drawing on his vast experience, writing with authority and compassion, C. Drew Edwards, Ph.D, a child psychologist, explains why some children are especially challenging, then spells out clear, specific strategies parents use to address and correct problem behaviors with firmness and love. Illustrations.
