The Explosive Child

A revolutionary new approach to understanding and parenting children who frequently exhibit severe fits of temper and other intractable behaviors, from a distinguished clinician and pioneer in this field, now updated to include the most recent research. Everyone knows an explosive child that has had frequent, extreme fits of temper, and leaves his or her parents standing helpless in their fear, frustration. Most of these parents have tried everything, from reasoning, behavior modification, therapy, medication, and have been unsuccessful. They wonder if their child is abnormal or just plain bad. Dr. Ross Greene, having worked with thousands of explosive children, 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 behavior, along with new language to describe it. He explains the latest scientific findings about the importance of flexibility, and, most important, shows parents specific, practical ways they can recognize the signs of an impending explosion so they can defuse tension, and reduce frustration levels for the entire family.
