Book Description

April 1 2003
A practical, realistic and easy-to-understand resource to help parents deal with out-of-control adolescents' frustrating behaviors - behaviors that can leave even the most experienced parents "whipped." It is written in everyday language, with humor and hope. Provides answers to help parents meet the challenge of raising an out-of-control teen. From the book- Out-of-control teens include those who are described by mental health professionals as being oppositional-defiant and conduct disordered. Oppositional-defiant kids are negative, defiant, disobedient and hostile toward authority figures. They lose their tempers, argue and refuse to comply with the requests of parents, teachers, therapists, even the local librarian. Any adult who tries to set a limit is fair game. This type of adolescent is often angry, resentful, spiteful and vindictive. They deliberately annoy people and blame others for their poor choices and negative behavior. Conduct disordered kids are all of the above and then some. They engage in severely dangerous and illegal behaviors. They are often the school bullies, threatening peers and adults. They fight, carry weapons and do drugs. They lie, steal, set fires and deliberately destroy other people's property. They are often truant from school, stay out past curfew and run away from home, despite their parents' efforts to stop them. These teens consistently and seriously violate the rules and laws of society. The Whipped Parent can help parents of oppositional-defiant and conduct disordered adolescents find ways to stay centered while dealing correctly with school and court authorities. The authors do not believe in using boot camps as a tool to "control" bad behavior. Includes appendixes, worksheets for parents, suggested reading and an index.

The Oppositional Defiant Disorder Lifeline (Legacy Publishing Company, 2012), a self-help program for parents of behavior-disordered children based on Kim's unique, specialized parenting approach for that population. Kim is a national speaker on the topics of childhood behavior disorders and is frequently a media consultant on topics including: bullying, divorce issues, trauma, surviving a loved one's addiction, grandparents raising grandchildren and the increasing epidemic of adult children living at home (Failure to Launch).

5.0 out of 5 stars A Must Read! Jan. 30 2004
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
The Whipped Parent is a powerful resource simply written and easy for any parent to understand. It's a guide to help parents regain their sanity through learning to change their own thought processes, behaviors and responses. It is key for parents to understand the difference between control and influence and how that difference impacts their relationship with their child. The Whipped Parent clearly shares an abundance of tools and ideas on how to endure raising an Out-of-Control Teen. This is indeed a must read survival book! Deni

5.0 out of 5 stars A Parent Who's Been Whipped Dec 4 2003
Format:Paperback
Kim and Marney have written a book that has been too long in coming for parents with out-of-control children. When my child was a teen (back in the early 90s) there was no help for me, no where to turn, no book to read. I felt like a failure as a parent, thinking it must be my fault that my child was out of control. Kim and Marney's book made me realize that I WAS (and am)a good mother. Anyone with a child who is bordering on oppositional defiance or conduct disorder should definitely read this book. It will be like a livesaver in an ugly storm.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not just for parents of teens! May 10 2007
By Diane Hamilton - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
My teenager daughter has been refusing to go to school, posting revealing self-portraits on the internet, and defying me on just about every issue. Like the parents described in this book, I am frustrated, guilty, and burned out (whipped). Some days, I just don't even want to come home from work.

This book really helped me to see my daughter and myself in a different light. I understand more about her now, and how my behavior has kind of fed her behavior. I also feel equipped to deal with the stuff she throws my way. I'll be on my TOES from now on!

If you're looking for a book that will teach you how to control your child, this isn't it. In fact, this book is more about you than it is about your kid. And after reading it, I realize that I don't WANT to "control" her either. I can see her aggravating traits as potential strengths, too.

As I read this book, however, I was struck by the similarities in some of the stories to my 10-year-old step-son. He's having even more behavioral problems than my daughter (he's more like Top Dog, she's more like Slug). Before reading this book, I thought boot camp might be the answer. However, now I'm recommending that my fiance read this book, too!

If you're considering boot camp -- STOP! Read this book first!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book... Finally some focus on the parents emotional health Feb. 11 2012
By BK - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
If you are looking for a book that will give you ideas on how to 'fix' your teenager, keep looking. This is not that book, and I'm SO glad for it. There is no fix for an adolescent choosing their way, but there are ways for parents to cope and find middle ground when their children misstep. This book is wonderful at discussing what you can do to change your thought process and emotional response as parents, and in turn how that can improve your relationship with your teen.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very well written and informative Oct. 12 2010
By DR. NLKDO - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The Whipped Parent is a well written book which avoids jargon for the layperson. I bought this book for my friend who is having problems with his out of control teen. He was so grateful to receive it and it gave him hope that there was something that he could do and at least read about people who are going through the same thing that he is. I read the first few chapters myself and was impressed with the real life examples that were given and believe that is probably one of the best self-help books on this subject and highly recommend it to parents who feel helpless against their out of control teen. My own counselor was interested in recommending this book to his patients as well.
