Publisher's Summary

Rex Forehand, PhD, and Nicholas Long, PhD, have helped thousands of parents achieve discipline using positive reinforcement, without yelling or harming the child's self-esteem. Their clinically proven, five-week program gives you the tools you need to successfully manage your child's behavior, giving specific factors that cause or contribute to disruptive behavior, ways to develop a more positive atmosphere in your family and home, and strategies for managing specific behavior problems.

This completely revised and updated edition includes: new research-based information about child temperament; a new chapter on the hot topic of play as a means of strengthening the parent-child relationship; a new section on collaborative disciplining with preschool teachers; an expanded section about depression and stress linked to parenting; and new research findings about ADHD and its treatment.

Infomercial or assistance? You decide.

If you really need assistance and specific direction then this book is for you. Detailed instructions for a variety of challenging behaviors are given. I felt I was reading an infomercial about this book and others by these authors. Many times I wanted to scream "get to the point already!!"
Very common sense. I'm glad I didn't spend any more time on this book!

Hope for Parents

Very well done, and laid out. Lots of great advice. I would recommend taking notes if you haven't had the chance to purchase the book. Even if your child is not strong willed, this is helpful with children with ADHD, or if you are struggling with siblings.
