The Explosive Child (6th Edition)
What’s an explosive child? Most parents have tried everything—reasoning, explaining, punishing, sticker charts, therapy, medication—but to no avail. They can’t figure out why their child acts the way he or she does. Dr. Ross Greene, a distinguished clinician and pioneer in the treatment of kids with social, emotional, and behavioral challenges, has worked with thousands of explosive children, and he has good news: these kids aren’t attention-seeking, manipulative, or unmotivated, and their parents aren’t passive pushovers. In this new edition of this compassionate, insightful, and practical book, Dr. Greene provides new lenses—based on research in the neurosciences—through which to view challenging behavior, lenses that help parents understand why traditional parenting strategies often make things worse. Instead of relying on rewarding and punishing, Dr. Greene helps parents and kids collaborate on solving the problems that precipitate explosive episodes, a process that simultaneously teaches kids the skills they lack, improves communication, enhances relationships, and dramatically improves behavior.
