This book helps you prevent a serious mistake. A family mistake. Once a child makes improvement, you, as parents feel happy and relieved. You may think your child is compliant, or even a more respectful member of the family. You set a high standard or expectation for your child, now that he or she shows promise of good changes. You feel great and your family is back to normal. But when your child falls below this standard, you don't just feel disappointed. You feel annoyed, even angry, that your child failed, is reverting to old habits. You even feel the improvements were fake. You feel fooled, deceived, and betrayed by your child. You feel this because you saw your child was really trying and now he or she slid backwards and is starting all over again. You can avoid over-reacting to your child's backsliding if you know how to spot family resistance and how to manage it.
