Explosive Child: A New Approach for Understanding and Parenting Easily Frustrated, Chronically Inflexible Children : Reviewed

Author:Ross W. Greene
Reading Level (Conceptual):For grown-ups
Reading Level (Vocabulary):For grown-ups
Genre:Non-fiction: Child-raising
Year of publication:2001

Dr. Greene describes certain children who, although they are not intentionally rebellious, under certain circumstances become so caught up in their frustration that they lose the ability to reason. He suggests that parents carefully choose which battles to fight (with detailed descriptions about how to make these selections) and provides suggested techniques for helping these children control themselves.

The book includes little dialogues in which the author recounts both successful and unsuccessful attempts to diffuse explosive situations; these dialogues are followed by analyses of what might have been going on in both the parent's and the child's minds.
