Product Description:

What's the worst you've ever faced as a parent? An all-out public tantrum? A son who won't listen? A daughter who constantly breaks curfew? A call from the police?

Whatever you're dealing with, 

Raising the Challenging Child will help.

Building on their work at Chaddock, a nonprofit organization that has worked with some of the most challenging kids in the United States for more than 150 years, the authors empower you with practical tips and real-life examples on how to:

  • minimize behavioral meltdowns
  • reduce conflict
  • increase cooperation
  • promote healthy attachment
  • improve family relationships

The strategies they share work both for the child going through a difficult phase brought on by life disruption or trauma and for the child facing chronic struggles. Parents, teachers, and those who work with children and youth will find positive, practical steps they can start taking today in order to understand and address the baffling behavior of the child under their care.
