Screaming, swearing, crying, hitting, kicking, spitting, biting...these are some of the challenging behaviors we see in kids who are having difficulty meeting our expectations. These behaviors often leave parents feeling frustrated, angry, overwhelmed, and desperate for answers. In this fully revised and updated book, Dr. Ross Greene helps you understand why and when your child does these things and how to respond in ways that are nonpunitive, nonadversarial, humane, and effective. Dr. Greene describes how best to: Understand the factors that contribute to challenging episodes. Identify the specific situations in which challenging episodes are likely to occur. Reduce or eliminate challenging episodes by solving the problems that cause them. Solve problems collaboratively (rather than unilaterally) and proactively (rather than reactively). Help your child develop the skills to be more flexible, solve problems, and handle frustration more adaptively. Reduce hostility and antagonism between you and your child. With Dr. Greene's practical, expert guidance, you and your child will forge a new relationship based on communication and mutual respect.

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Explosive children, or explosive kids, are children and adolescents described by Dr. Ross Greene-in his books The Explosive Child (1998; 2001; 2005) and Lost at School (2008) as being compromised in the skills of flexibility/adaptability, frustration tolerance, and problem solving, resulting in frequent and sometimes severe temper outbursts and noncompliance. Dr. Greene also delineated a treatment model called Collaborative Problem Solving for helping such youth in families, schools, and restrictive therapeutic facilities. First described in The Explosive Child by Dr. Ross W. Greene, the terms explosive kids or explosive children was also used a few times in The Oprah Winfrey Show.

The first comprehensive presentation for clinicians of the groundbreaking approach popularized in Ross Greene's acclaimed parenting guide, The Explosive Child, this book provides a detailed framework for effective, individualized intervention with highly oppositional children and their families. Many vivid examples and Q&A sections show how to identify the specific cognitive factors that contribute to explosive and noncompliant behavior, remediate these factors, and teach children and their adult caregivers how to solve problems collaboratively. The book also describes challenges that may arise in implementing the model and provides clear and practical solutions. Two special chapters focus on intervention in schools and in therapeutic/restrictive facilities.
