Reseña del editor
A groundbreaking 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. What's an explosive child? A child who responds to routine problems with extreme frustration-crying, screaming, swearing, kicking, hitting, biting, spitting, destroying property, and worse. A child whose frequent, severe outbursts leave his or her parents feeling frustrated, scared, worried, and desperate for help. Most of these 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; they wonder why the strategies that work for other kids don't work for theirs; and they don't know what to do instead. 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, permissive pushovers. Rather, explosive kids are lacking some crucial skills in the domains of flexibility/adaptability, frustration tolerance, and problem solving, and they require a different approach to parenting. Throughout this compassionate, insightful, and practical book, Dr. Greene provides a new conceptual framework for understanding their difficulties, based on research in the neurosciences. He explains why traditional parenting and treatment often don't work with these children, and he describes what to do instead. Instead of relying on rewarding and punishing, Dr. Greene's Collaborative Problem Solving model promotes working with explosive children to solve the problems that precipitate explosive episodes, and teaching these kids the skills they lack.
Screaming, swearing, crying, hitting, kicking, spitting, biting...these are some of the challenging behaviors we see in kids who are having difficulty meeting our expectations. These behaviors often leave parents feeling frustrated, angry, overwhelmed, and desperate for answers. In this fully revised and updated book, Dr. Ross Greene helps you understand why and when your child does these things and how to respond in ways that are nonpunitive, nonadversarial, humane, and effective.
Dr. Greene describes how best to:
- Understand the factors that contribute to challenging episodes.
- Identify the specific situations in which challenging episodes are likely to occur.
- Reduce or eliminate challenging episodes by solving the problems that cause them.
- Solve problems collaboratively (rather than unilaterally) and proactively (rather than reactively).
- Help your child develop the skills to be more flexible, solve problems, and handle frustration more adaptively.
- Reduce hostility and antagonism between you and your child.
With Dr. Greene's practical, expert guidance, you and your child will forge a new relationship based on communication and mutual respect.Ver Descripción del producto

My child wasn't violent or terrible, he was just more difficult. Much more difficult than his siblings. Everything was harder with him. It was harder to get him to bed, harder to get him to stop doing something he shouldn't, harder to teach him and so on. He was quick to anger and stayed angry longer than his father and I felt was warranted for the situation.
As a former teacher, having seen hundred and hundreds of students go through my classroom and having two other children, I just felt something was wrong with our situation. I was worried about him and I was worried that as he got bigger and older he might turn violent. So I started looking and searching. I took countless 'is your child.... ' questionnaires and generally tried to figure out what I needed to be doing with him. And when I stumbled across an article about Ross W. Greene, I thought 'this might be a help'. So I bought this book.
Mr Greene explained what I couldn't understand with my son. He helped me understand why my son was reacting (or acting) the way he was in various situations. He gives some simple suggestions and a way to begin to implement this 'new way of parenting'. It was not overwhelming because it started with one or two simple things and then you could try the next thing and the next thing.
And then, one day, you realize you have developed a set of strategies that you can use during difficult times. And what is important is none of these strategies involve spanking, yelling, swearing, or any other form of tough love.
And then one day, my son got angry and instead of being angry and storming off and slamming doors and yelling, he sat down and he talked. He talked to me and he talked about what he was thinking and we figured it out. After it was over, I cried because this was the son I KNEW was 'in there' and this book and Ross Greene's other books helped me help my son.
So it's not so much a "new way of parenting" as it is a better way of parenting for me. This book is about looking at skills that are lagging and helping your child develop those skills. It is about picking and choosing which strategy you will use for each situation because you understand more now than you ever did. It is about listening to what your child can't say because he (or she) doesn't know how to say what they are thinking and feeling. It is about building trust, respect flowing both ways, listening, and trying to understand the root of the behavior.
I hope that everyone who has a difficult child (or more than difficult) is able to find some hope. For us, this book was the beginning of the hope.
Worth every penny.
Our daughter's OT suggested this book and I'm pretty sure I sounded like really enthusiastic parishioner during a great sermon because I found myself blurting out "YES!!" "That's exactly right!" and "Amen!!" a few times...and I suddenly felt understood and human again. But, most importantly, I understood my little explosive child much better and began to learn ways to avoid her going into VAPOR LOCK and being "unreachable" and volatile.
Does she still throw humiliating tantrums without regard to where we are or who might witness it? Yes. Am I still mortified in those moments and begging God to spontaneously combust me? Yes. Will that ever change...? I doubt it. lol But we are doing better now that I have a more solid understanding of her psychology and how to work with it.
If you are looking at this book, perhaps it is because someone in your life (a doctor, OT, Therapist, friend, or fellow parent of an explosive child) has recommended it, so please know I am praying for you! lol I do...I pray for parents everywhere who have a child like this because it is really the hardest thing I have ever undertaken as a parent!! Please know you are not alone....and as a reformed judger, I can only say I am so so so sorry. I never knew!!! But I am humbled and wiser now...and still wondering if spontaneous combustion could save me from some of the more embarrassing locales of explosions.... :-)
