Publisher Comments:

andlt;Bandgt;"So what? All the other kids get to do it!"andlt;/Bandgt; andlt;BRandgt; Few behavioral problems challenge and frustrate parents, caregivers, and teachers as does verbal rudeness in children of any age. Reinforced by the wise-cracking kids on TV and in the movies, backtalk has become all too common among today's youngsters. But there is nothing cute about this behavior. Remarks like "Yeah, right," "Big deal," and "Make me" — form children as young as three — get in the way of andlt;Iandgt;realandlt;/Iandgt; communication between parents and kids, and can also be detrimental to a child's social and intellectual development. andlt;BRandgt; Now two experts in the field share their simple and specific four-step program for ending backtalk and restoring balance in relationships between parents and children, from preschoolers to teens. You'll learn how to recognize backtalk, how to choose and enact a response that will make sense to you and the backtalker, and when to disengage from the struggle and move forward. Full of advice and encouragement as well as suggestions on how to keep track of what works and what doesn't, andlt;Iandgt;Backtalkandlt;/Iandgt; can be put to use immediately, before you hear another "Whatever."

Synopsis:

Filling an important gap in the parenting market, this breakthrough book confronts the pervasive problem of kids' rudeness head-on, with a four-step program for stemming backtalk at home and in school. 160 pp
