Many tens of thousands of parents have turned to this book for guidance, support, concrete strategies, and practical tools for addressing serious teen behavior problems. By following the authors' clinically proven 10-step program, parents can reestablish their authority and end the perpetual battle of wills—while also promoting teens' growing independence. Numerous realistic examples illustrate how to identify and enforce nonnegotiable rules; use rewards and incentives that work; build trust; and communicate and problem-solve effectively, even in the heat of the moment. The updated second edition incorporates new scientific research on why some teens have more problems with self-control than others. Parents will appreciate the upbeat, empathic tone. Helpful forms and worksheets are included; purchasers get access to a Web page where they can download and print these materials in a convenient 8 1/2" x 11" size.

Recenzii

"The transition from adolescence to adulthood can be tough as teens attempt to assert their independence, often leading to defiant, angry and oppositional behavior. Now in an updated second edition, this is a very welcome, current resource that helps parents guide their teens through difficult times. For many years, I have recommended the first edition of this book to parents and used the strategies in my work as a clinician. "Your Defiant Teen" has been--and will continue to be--the first book I recommend to parents struggling with challenging teens."--Sam Goldstein, PhD, Editor-in-Chief, "Journal of Attention Disorders" "The transition from adolescence to adulthood can be tough as teens attempt to assert their independence.

"Your Defiant Teen" has been--and will continue to be--the first book I recommend to parents struggling with challenging teens."--Sam Goldstein, PhD, coauthor of "Angry Children, Worried Parents" "Since the first edition of this book was published, growing evidence shows that the authors' program works. The second edition incorporates lessons learned from continuing research while maintaining the practical, warm, and supportive approach that resonates so well with families. Without placing blame, the authors help parents understand their teen's behavior and explain 10 clear steps for creating positive change by improving parent-teen interactions. The book also offers ideas and resources for what to do when professional help is needed. Although written for parents, this book is also a valuable resource for anyone trying to help an acting-out adolescent think and behave differently. Clinicians will find it helpful in their work with families, and school practitioners and teachers will find valuable ideas for understanding and working with defiant teens."Torrey A.
