Dr. Stanley Turecki's acclaimed first book, The Difficult Child, has become a parenting classic, with more than 250,000 copies in print. He brings the same compassion and practicality to this essential new guide, a lifeline for every parent who has ever asked the frightening question, "Is something wrong with my child?" Whether the difficulty is poor self-image or defiance, fearfulness or hyperactivity, lying or sibling rivalry, this original and thought-provoking book can help.
Dr. Turecki begins with two powerful reassurances: "Normal children can have problems" and "Parents can help them." Step-by-step, he shows how mothers and fathers can use their intimate knowledge of their child to understand what's happening - and to intervene effectively.
The book offers innovative tools that will make every parent a more effective and confident family leader:
Planned communication: how to discuss problems without destructive arguments and win your child's cooperation.
The parental evaluation: a systematic way to gather facts and gain insight into causes and solutions.
Active acceptance: how to strengthen your child's self-esteem by acknowledging his or her individuality.
Effective discipline: a new approach that focuses on planning and prevention rather than punishment.
Co-expert collaboration: how to work with teachers on school problems such as hyperactivity and learning disabilities; and when to seek additional help for a troubled child.
Dr. Turecki also invites readers to sit in while he evaluates a child and his or her family. The book includes many vivid vignettes of cases from his practice, illustrating a wide range of problems - and how they were successfully resolved.
