Publisher's Summary

Do your child's outbursts of anger, power struggles, blackmail, and rebellion prevent your family from living a simple peaceful day?

Does it constantly disturb your day, thinking that at any moment you might get a call from your child's school telling you that your child has intentionally caused damage again? 

Have the various strategies you have always used in an attempt to resolve the situation failed

Oppositional defiant disorder is a behavioural disorder that occurs in children of school or preschool age, and is characterised by anger, irritability, revenge, and aversion behaviour, that frequently manifests in your child for a period of at least six months. 

School teachers use basic methods; those learned at home or in their schools when they were pupils and students, and often find themselves able to do nothing but raise their voices, marginalize and give bad grades to children who are vulnerable to these types of issues. 

Instead of improving the situation and the lives of these children, they create a climate in which behaviour gets dramatically worse. 

In a social context, these children are marginalised, bullied and classified as "monsters", labels that do nothing but feed the vicious circle of poor behaviour, isolation and social stigma. 

If not resolved in time, these problems cause impairment in social adaptation and social functionality, increasing the risk of anxiety disorders, depressive disorders and leading to potentially serious consequences that could otherwise, with the right techniques, be avoided. 

In fact, more and more parents and educators are turning to methods proven by psychologists, methods based on specific cases, becoming experts and abandoning old methods that have perpetually proved to be ineffective.

You are advised to listen to this book if, in the last six months, your child has been overwhelmed by:

  • Anger - often manifesting itself in aggression, resentfulness, vindictiveness and spitefulness.
  • Quarrelling with adults, an inability to comply with rules, a desire to provoke and irritate people.
  • Habitually accusing others of their mistakes or poor behaviour, susceptibility to being easily provoked and irritated by others.
     

What you need to do now:

  • Listen to those who have encountered this problem and have experienced its dynamics.
  • Avoid confrontation with other parents who do not empathise with this situation and who may offer negative advice, worsening your relationship with your child.

Your son or daughter is not a monster. These children/teenagers often suffer terribly and sometimes express their discomfort in ways we do not understand.

Listening to this book tomorrow will not magically solve all your child's problems, but I guarantee that if you listen and re-listen to each chapter carefully, absorb all the tips, and apply the techniques provided by this audio manual, then you will be well on the way to rebuilding a healthy relationship with your son or daughter, and increasing the chances of a brighter future for you both.

Informative

Very informative. I’ve already been actively doing the suggestions and guidance held within, but it was nice to have things reiterated. I felt validated that my parenting alone isn’t necessarily the issue. I was able to catch where I have perhaps made mistakes in the past.

The narrator is simply reading the material. Not a lot of fluctuation in his voice. Sort of made it dull.

If you’re interested in figuring out ODD more, the material will be helpful.

Techniques are logically presented.

Techniques are logically presented from least ‘restrictive’ to more intensive as severity of behaviors discussed are more intense.
Positive reinforcement is included and the author differentiates ODD from conduct disorder and co-morbid conditions such as anxiety and depression.

Finally a good book that offers multiple appraches

Finally a good book that offers multiple appraches and systems that empower the parent.Really nice simple systems to put into place. REALLY NICE "PRIMER" IN THE FRONT TO EMPOWER PARENTS! Yes it is your house and you make the rules. Yes as a family member you can expect good behavior and academic performance to the best of abilities. Yes it is your job as the parent to INSIST that the child work toward these.
