Strengthen Your Relationship with Your Child
Proven Techniques for Raising the Challenging Child
What's the worst you've ever faced as a parent? An all-out tantrum at the mall? A son who won't take out his earbuds to listen to you? A daughter who's failing at school and won't do her homework? A teen 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 nation for more than 150 years, the authors empower frustrated parents 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 who is going through a difficult phase brought on by life, disruption, or trauma and for the child who faces 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.
One chapter at a time, co-author Karen Doyle Buckwalter, LCSW, RPT-S is sharing a glimpse into the lessons from Raising the Challenging Child. Tune in as she shares real-life examples, evidence-based strategies and practical tips that parents and caregivers can use today.
