Parenting a Defiant Child: A Sanity-saving Guide to Finally Stopping the Bad Behavior

Front Cover
Only a handful of communities have clinics specializing in the screening and treatment of defiant and ADD children - and those clinics have long waiting lists: Most parents are left to their own devices as they try to understand the problem and find a way to help their child. This behavior pattern tends to have life-long negative implications if not addressed. The book offers specific techniques, as well as encouragement, reassuring readers that the problem is not their fault and that by using the right strategies, the problem can be successfully resolved. The Halls are the perfect authors for this book: Phil is a licensed child psychologist with 34 years of experience. During his tenure as Director of the School Psychology Program at Minot State University, he provided a comprehensive clinic for children with oppositional and defiant behaviors and their families. Nancy is an education specialist with 27 years of experience.
