5.0 out of 5 stars Good Start!, March 11 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Explosive Child: A New Approach For Understanding and Parenting Easily Frustrated, Chronically Inflexible Children: A New Approach For Understanding and Parenting Easily Frustrated, Chronically Inflexible Children (Paperback)
I've been trying this out with my daughter. One day she was on her way into a fit with tears and whining when she said, "Mom, I want to do that talking thing right now." I hadn't told her I was trying something new on her, but she must have noticed anyway. It's surprising how often she can't come up with any solutions to her problems. The book makes sense and I'm optimistic that my daughter will become more emotionally mature in time.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book but not for children with auditory problems, Nov. 16 2011
This review is from: The Explosive Child: A New Approach For Understanding and Parenting Easily Frustrated, Chronically Inflexible Children: A New Approach For Understanding and Parenting Easily Frustrated, Chronically Inflexible Children (Paperback)
After coping for several years with a difficult child (diagnosed with ADHD/ADD, ODD, severe sensory issues and severe receptive language disorder), this book was recommended by the school behaviorial consultant. While I think that Dr. Greene has written an excellent manuel that is both enlighting and informative, it has not worked for my son. Repeated efforts by the school to apply this method has resulted in an increase in his aggressive behaviors and violence and it is due to the fact that Dr. Green's methods involved reasoning and talking. With my son's auditory issues and receptive language delays (he's 8 but functioning at a 6 year old level), application of his methods only serves to frustrate my son more. My son also has executive function delays as well, which means that, at this time, he is not fully capable of the level of reasoning required by a child to be successful with this program. For children such as my son, this book and methods are probably best left until such time as the child is older and funtioning at a high level. Dr. Greene does not address auditory processing disorder in his book, much to my chagrin

My daughter received this book from my grandchild's school. I ordered copies for the my grandson's other grandparents and daughter. This book is soooooo informative, and extremely easy to read. Greene has offered alternative parenting skills to parents that ease the anxiety and stress not only for the child but parents too. The difference in my grandson, and the difference in the atmosphere in my daughter's home is beyond words. No parent should be without this book even if they don't have a troubled child.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stop Explosions Before They Start, July 5 2010
This review is from: The Explosive Child: A New Approach For Understanding and Parenting Easily Frustrated, Chronically Inflexible Children: A New Approach For Understanding and Parenting Easily Frustrated, Chronically Inflexible Children (Paperback)
This book does what Therapists doesn't - it doesn't give a diagnosis - it actually tells you why your child acts the way he does. It explains in clear terms what is happening in your child's brain that prevents him from acting the way people expect. It then goes on to explain in practical terms what you can do to change the behavior to create a more acceptable outcome.

5.0 out of 5 stars Child with ADHD, Feb. 5 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Explosive Child: A New Approach For Understanding and Parenting Easily Frustrated, Chronically Inflexible Children: A New Approach For Understanding and Parenting Easily Frustrated, Chronically Inflexible Children (Paperback)
I really have to say that I enjoyed the light hearted nature of this book. It also helped me put things into perspective with my child suffering from OCD and ADHD. This is not a quick and easy fix and takes the whole family to practice embrace and really understand. The pages are filled with helpful tips and it was well recommended with our psychiatrist.
