This book leads the frustrated parent of a willful and "chronically inflexible child" from the vicious "power struggle" circle that at least this parent can't seem to avoid getting into w/ his 4-y.o. to the virtuous circle of collaborative problem solving. A real life saver. ( )

This has been a helpful book to me, in dealing with an explosive eight-year-old boy.

Empathizing, detailing concerns, and inviting him to help me meet both of our needs helps to minimize the outbursts, and has taught me, perhaps most importantly, to understand why I am giving the rules and limitations I am. A parent who says no, just for the sake of establishing dominance is doing nothing worthwhile for the child. I regret that I am sometimes that parent. ( )

I found this book very useful. Behaviorally, relationally and problem solving/coping skill development with a developmental consideration made this book a very good book for parents. ( )

This program provides the rationale AND the practical steps to helping overly emotional children cope with change, disappointment, etc. While it is geared at families struggling with "explosive" children, the system works well with all children.

This book was a necessity and was rather helpful. Imagine a normal, intelligent child who is able to focus for the most part, but in certain instances explodes suddenly into a rage over trivial things.

Imagine a normal, intelligent child who is able to focus for the most part, but in certain instances explodes suddenly into a rage over trivial things. The Explosive Child tells the story of such children and gives explanations of how to deal with such children, why they may act in such a way, and how to recognize and prevent such occurrences before they get out of control.

While you may think, "Oh no, another disorder to label children with," Dr. Greene clearly separates the inflexible/explosive child from the pack of dysfunctional children with such disorders as ADHD, tourettes, or autism. His methods for dealing with an inflexible/explosive child require more discipline for the adult than for the child, but are logical and effective. Consequences for misbehavior to a child who already knows they are acting in an unacceptable way, could be counter-productive to developing the skills required for dealing with their inflexibility to change. Greene shows you how to recognize the signs of a meltdown before the child loses all control and tells you how to counter it with empathy and understanding.

This is a good book for all caregivers and teachers; especially those who work with preschool and grade school students. It is also important for any parent with a child that they have lost hope and patience for. ( )

Haiku summary

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 006077939X, Paperback)

Flexibility and tolerance are learned skills, as any parent knows if they've seen an irascible 2-year-old grow into a pleasant, thoughtful, and considerate older child. Unfortunately, for reasons that are poorly understood, a few children don't "get" this part of socialization. Years after toddler tantrums should have become an unpleasant memory, a few unlucky parents find themselves battling with sudden, inexplicable, disturbingly violent rages--along with crushing guilt about what they "did wrong." Medical experts haven't helped much: the flurry of acronyms and labels (Tourette's, ADHD, ADD, etc.) seems to proffer new discoveries about the causes of such explosions, when in fact the only new development is alternative vocabulary to describe the effects. Ross Greene, a pediatric psychologist who also teaches at Harvard Medical School, makes a bold and humane attempt in this book to cut through the blather and speak directly to the (usually desperate) parents of explosive children. His text is long and serious, and has the advantage of covering an enormous amount of ground with nuance, detail, and sympathy, but also perhaps the disadvantage that only those parents who are not chronically tired and time-deprived are likely to get through the entire book. Quoted dialogue from actual sessions with parents and children is interspersed with analysis that is always oriented toward understanding the origins of "meltdowns" and developing workable strategies for avoidance. Although pharmacological treatment is not the book's focus, there is a chapter on drug therapies. --Richard Farr

We've all seen an "explosive child": one who exhibits intense temper outbursts, sudden mood swings, extreme noncompliance, and verbal and physical aggression. For parents who seem to have tried everything, finally there is hope. In this groundbreaking book, Dr. Ross Greene provides a practical, compassionate approach to treating these children, who may be diagnosed with any of various psychiatric disorders, including oppositional-defiant disorder, attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), bipolar disorder, and Tourette's disorder. Drawing upon recent advances in the neurosciences and his extensive experience working with challenging children, Dr. Greene explains that they are not willfully destructive. Their behaviors stem from brain-based deficits in two critical developmental skills: flexibility and frustration tolerance. With Dr. Greene's sensitive, expert advice, you will find ways to defuse explosive episodes, reduce tension, and build a warm, lasting relationship with your child.… (more)
