Description

A groundbreaking approach to understanding and parenting children who frequently exhibit severe fits of temper and other intractable behaviors, from a distinguished clinician and pioneer in this field.

What’s an explosive child? A child who responds to routine problems with extreme frustration - crying, screaming, swearing, kicking, hitting, biting, spitting, destroying property, and worse. A child whose frequent, severe outbursts leave his or her parents feeling frustrated, scared, worried, and desperate for help. Most of these parents have tried everything - reasoning, explaining, punishing, sticker charts, therapy, medication - but to no avail. They can’t figure out why their child acts the way he or she does; they wonder why the strategies that work for other kids don’t work for theirs; and they don’t know what to do instead.

Dr. Ross Greene, a distinguished clinician and pioneer in the treatment of kids with social, emotional, and behavioral challenges, has worked with thousands of explosive children, and he has good news: These kids aren’t attention-seeking, manipulative, or unmotivated, and their parents aren’t passive, permissive pushovers. Rather, explosive kids are lacking some crucial skills in the domains of flexibility/adaptability, frustration tolerance, and problem solving, and they require a different approach to parenting.

Throughout this compassionate, insightful, and practical book, Dr. Greene provides a new conceptual framework for understanding their difficulties, based on research in the neurosciences. He explains why traditional parenting and treatment often don’t work with these children, and he describes what to do instead. Instead of relying on rewarding and punishing, Dr. Greene’s "Collaborative Problem Solving" model promotes working with explosive children to solve the problems that precipitate explosive episodes, and teaching these kids the skills they lack.

Some good tools... too bad about the narrator. :(

The book is informative and has a good message while also providing some tools for your parenting toolbox, HOWEVER... The narration of this book is so profoundly awful that it distracts from the content. I had to go back over passages several times in order to understand the sentence\paragraph. At times its choppy, others robotic, and then at other times she attempts to do voices and express emotion. It's all over the place and I almost stopped listening... What a shame.

Horribly narrated

Great book and valuable info / examples, but it was HORRIBLE for the narration. Hard to keep focused and listening.

Great info. Bizarre narration.

The info in this book was very interesting and useful to me. I’m looking forward to trying out the tactics outlined.
The narration was very strange. I thought at first that it was a computer generated voice. The pauses and intonations were so unnatural. She speaks each word so clearly, and distinctly that the flow is lost. It might be good for a non- English person to understand, but it made the ideas so much harder to follow.

Still overall, I’m glad I read it.

Great content but...

The narration is so stilted and artificial sounding that it actually prevents me at some points from being able to follow the train of thought. So stilted with the exception of the role play sections. Wish the narration was more natural in tone and pace.

The message is better than the delivery

I'm living the life of someone who is described in this book. I see my 6 year old in the stories told. As a dad I was a little humbled by seeing myself in the book as well. I'll do the plan/strategy and see if helps in the long run.

The narator wasn't great. She mispronounced a few words and overall sounded a bit robotic. I imagine there is a sound editor who could have tweeked things a bit more. Listen to the sample's first sentence.

Great book - difficult to listen to narration :(

The book is awesome and has a lot of great info. The narration is unfortunately robotic, with little variation, which makes it hard to focus on the info being provided. Some key words are also consistently pronounced with the accent on the wrong syllable ( like "frustration"), which when listening to an entire book becomes aggravating. I strongly recommend the book but if you have the time to read it, rather than listen to it, I would recommend you go that route.

Good content, awful narration.

Sounds like a screen reader rather than human narration. The content is excellent, but hard to choke it down in this format.

Was Hesitant at First, But Loved It

As a mom of a really moody toddler, I was really skeptical. I read the reviews on Amazon and Audible and wasn't sure if this book was going to help at all. And also, I've never really been a fan of Audible, but since I'm so busy, this was the best option to be able to get some info and still watch my kids. Honestly, I was wrong. The narrator was outstanding, and definitely not boring at all. She made me feel like I was actually there and sorta like watching TV. She's great at helping people to feel interested in reading such dense material. Ross was great, but a little repetitive with the Plan B methods. I feel all in all satisfied. Would have just loved more sections on dealing with Teenagers and more situations/examples.

Overall, great. Five stars.

The Updated Version is So Much BETTER!!

I read the original and thought it was amazing, but this book was so revolutionary of the way parenting should be, or just communicating with kids in general.

Best. Book!

Narrator awful

The book is fabulous, but the narrator's reading is stilted and incredibly hard to listen to. She mispronounces words, doesn't follow a normal cadence or rhythm when reading sentences, and her inflection is off.

Good info, distracting narration

It is no fun when a book’s information is overshadowed by distracting narration. She does well with the skits, but terribly simply reading. I Had to switch to a physical copy. Credit in the toilet.

Helpful for dealing with a child who has RAD

It's heavy reading, but I listened to it while I was driving. So many books and therapists explain WHY a child is explosive.This book gives you a plan of action.

I am so happy I finally found the right book

Seriously, listen to what the others are saying. This book really will change the way you see your child and the way you see how perhaps you might be hurting your kid more than helping him or her to improve. Tough lessons in this book, but I am so glad I listened to the whole thing. Took a while though! Haha! Loved the acting in this as well. She did a good job reading the book and making me interested.

Convicting Book, But I Needed to Hear It

Definitely had found myself being convicted of assuming my child was just choosing to be difficult and this has greatly helped me to forgive my child and love her better through the hard times. Some of the content about explosive children I actually saw in myself. Dr Greene’s strategies have ironically helped my own marriage with its treatment of those who are explosive. The audible version is the one I read. I liked the narrators story telling ability.

Why Haven't I Heard of This Sooner? Life CHANGING!

Dr. Greene is a God-given gift on earth. He's a brilliant genius and has literally helped me through this book work through some hard issues that my husband and I are facing with our child. The stories that he shares are so relatable and he makes it so easy to understand the concepts that he's trying to teach. Jessica is also a brilliant story-teller and I thought she did an amazing job acting out the stories and characters.

Is the narrator a robot??

Narration sounds like an automated voice! Tried very hard to follow, but it's really horrible.

hooray finally for a helpful parenting book!

I feel, as a parent of constant crying children that I've gone through at least 10 parenting books before joining a group via Facebook and learning about this book from other parents. Definitely glad I found this gem!
