Synopses & Reviews
Kids who are labeled BD (or ED, EBD, or SED) struggle every day -- with their peers, teachers, parents, and themselves. It's no fun to be labeled, and nobody wants to have behavior problems. Often, however, children who get in trouble a lot don't know how else to act. This book can help.
Modeled after our best-selling SURVIVAL GUIDE FOR KIDS WITH LD, THE BEHAVIOR SURVIVAL GUIDE FOR KIDS guides readers to better understand themselves and the problems their behavior creates. "Dr. Mac" describes what BD is (and isn't), the types and causes of BD, and special school programs for kids with BD. He suggests many ways to handle strong feelings and make positive choices. Stories and quotes from real kids let readers know they're not alone; IDEA! boxes present activities to try. Kids learn to believe in themselves, take responsibility for their actions, and enjoy the results of their better behavior. Includes a glossary and resources for kids, parents, and teachers.
The Behavior Survival Guide for Kids: How to Make Good Choices and Stay Out of Trouble offers advice for youngsters.
Includes bibliographical references (p. 158-160) and index.
Up-to-date information, practical strategies, and sound advice for kids with diagnosed behavior problems (BD, ED, EBD) and those with general behavior problems.
