In this groundbreaking book, Alan Kazdin, the director of the Yale Parenting Center and Child Conduct Clinic at Yale University, distils three decades of work with children into a step-by-step method for changing difficult behaviour-one backed up by the most long-term and respected research devoted to any therapy for children.Shattering decades' worth of accumulated myths about tantrums, time-outs, punishment and more, Parenting Your Defiant Child leads parents through every step of the Kazdin Method in action: how to use tone of voice, when and how to touch, how to lead your child in 'practice' sessions, how to involve non-offending siblings, and more. The programme is temporary but the results are permanent, and it's a method thatworks for a full range of situations for children of all ages - from milestones of normal development like potty training and tantrums to clinically severe behaviours like fighting, stealing, and lying. Parenting Your Defiant Child is a lifesaving handbook for parents of children who are occasionally, or too often, 'out of control'.
