Discover a way to end constant power struggles with your defiant, oppositional, “impossible” 5- to 12-year-old, with the help of leading child psychologist Russell A. Barkley. Dr. Barkley's approach is research based, practical, and doable—and leads to lasting behavior change. Vivid, realistic stories illustrate what the techniques look like in action. Step by step, learn how you can:
  • Harness the power of positive attention and praise.
  • Use rewards and incentives effectively.
  • Stay calm and consistent—even on the worst of days.
  • Establish a time-out system that works.
  • Target behavioral issues at home, in school, and in public places.
Thoroughly revised to include the latest resources and 15 years' worth of research advances, the second edition also reflects Dr. Barkley's ongoing experiences with parents and kids. Helpful questionnaires and forms can be downloaded and printed in a convenient 8½“ x 11” size.
