Publisher's Summary

The popular, powerful guide to help parents regain control over a defiant child or teenager... 

Occasional clashes between parents and children are not uncommon, but when defiant behavior-including tantrums, resistance to chores, and negativity-becomes chronic, it causes big problems within the family. In 10 Days to a Less Defiant Child, family and child psychologist Dr. Jeffrey Bernstein shares a groundbreaking 10-day program to help parents understand their child's behavior and regain control of their household. 

In this updated edition, parents will learn how to face new challenges, including defiance resulting from excessive technology use (even to the point of addiction) and the stress of modern family life. Dr. Bernstein explains what causes defiance in kids and why it's so destructive to the family, then offers parents a step-by-step guide on how to reduce conflict and end upsetting behaviors.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Excellent!

I feel that every parent should read this book! I have a degree in child development, have taught for 17 years in early childhood, was known as a calm, patient and understanding teacher and I was still able to learn some valuable strategies to use with my developmentally appropriately ‘defiant’ 4 year old daughter. Even though her defiance was developmentally appropriate, I wanted to make sure I was doing the right thing to help her through this stage of her development.. I am so glad I did because I feel even more calm and peaceful with my parenting and my daughter is even more cooperative than before. It is true that this works wonders and is applicable to all children. I wish that all parents and teachers would read this book because I do believe engaging with children in this way creates healthy, happy children and I feel this can help our world at large. As we help nurture emotional regulation in our children one family at a time we bring peace into the world. Also the author is very compassionate, understanding and non judgemental to parents too so you don’t have to worry about feeling bad for some human mistake you have made, we all make mistakes and are learning in this huge journey of parenting. This information will only empower you to become a better and more compassionate parent and person while watching your child blossom into their true cooperative and peaceful nature which is intrinsic to us all and can blossom with the right nourishment.

It has helpful tips and ways to look at situations

This book does have a few helpful tips on how to react to your child with defiant disorder. It does give you a few good ways to look at situations differently. It has a lot of stories that mostly didn't describe my current situation so it was a lot of time that I eventually learned to skip over. In some areas it is redundant and some of that could have probably been taken out.
