Customer Reviews
<p><strong>A groundbreaking approach to understanding and parenting children who frequently exhibit severe fits of temper and other intractable behaviors, from a distinguished clinician and pioneer in this field.</strong></p><p>What鈥檚 an explosive child? A child who responds to routine problems with extreme frustration鈥攃rying, screaming, swearing, kicking, hitting, biting, spitting, destroying property, and worse. A child whose frequent, severe outbursts leave his or her parents feeling frustrated, scared, worried, and desperate for help. Most of these parents have tried everything-reasoning, explaining, punishing, sticker charts, therapy, medication鈥攂ut to no avail. They can鈥檛 figure out why their child acts the way he or she does; they wonder why the strategies that work for other kids don鈥檛 work for theirs; and they don鈥檛 know what to do instead.<br /><br />Dr. Ross Greene, a distinguished clinician and pioneer in the treatment of kids with social, emotional, and behavioral challenges, has worked with thousands of explosive children, and he has good news: these kids aren鈥檛 attention-seeking, manipulative, or unmotivated, and their parents aren鈥檛 passive, permissive pushovers. Rather, explosive kids are lacking some crucial skills in the domains of flexibility/adaptability, frustration tolerance, and problem solving, and they require a different approach to parenting. <br /><br />Throughout this compassionate, insightful, and practical book, Dr. Greene provides a new conceptual framework for understanding their difficulties, based on research in the neurosciences. He explains why traditional parenting and treatment often don鈥檛 work with these children, and he describes what to do instead. Instead of relying on rewarding and punishing, Dr. Greene鈥檚 Collaborative Problem Solving model promotes working with explosive children to solve the problems that precipitate explosive episodes, and teaching these kids the skills they lack.</p>

Tired of the pace and noise of life near London and longing for a better place to raise their young children, Mary J. MacLeod and her husband encountered their dream while vacationing on a remote island in the Scottish Hebrides. Enthralled by its windswept beauty, they soon were the proud owners of a near-derelict croft house鈥攁 farmer鈥檚 stone cottage鈥攐n 鈥渁 small acre鈥?of land. Mary assumed duties as the island鈥檚 district nurse.<i> Call the Nurse</i> is her account of the enchanted years she and her family spent there, coming to know its folk as both patients and friends.<br /><br /> In anecdotes that are by turns funny, sad, moving, and tragic, she recalls them all, the crofters and their laird, the boatmen and tradesmen, young lovers and forbidding churchmen. Against the old-fashioned island culture and the grandeur of mountain and sea unfold indelible stories: a young woman carried through snow for airlift to the hospital; a rescue by boat; the marriage of a gentle giant and the island beauty; a ghostly encounter; the shocking discovery of a woman in chains; the flames of a heather fire at night; an unexploded bomb from World War II; and the joyful, tipsy celebration of a ceilidh. Gaelic fortitude meets a nurse鈥檚 compassion in these wonderful true stories from rural Scotland.

In a town called Meriton, Carl and Megan Parker are blessed with a baby girl, whom they name Betsy. At first, Betsy seems just as ordinary as any other baby. However, much to the shock of Betsy's parents, and to the concern of society, while still in her infancy, Betsy develops a never-before-seen allergic condition, in which virtually nothing can touch her skin. These reactions cause Betsy to become very ill, and even threaten her life. Betsy Parker cannot even wear any clothes, and so her life unfolds, from infancy to adulthood, as a quest for understanding, compassion and acceptance from society, as well as to be recognized as a human being with rights. From birth onward, even before Betsy is old enough to understand that something is unusual about her, she lives her entire sheltered, naked life living all these virtues towards all others, including the others who do not treat Betsy this way in return.

There's nothing more frustrating than watching your bright, talented son or daughter struggle with everyday tasks like finishing homework, putting away toys, or following instructions at school. Your "smart but scattered" 4- to 13-year-old might also have trouble coping with disappointment or managing anger. Drs. Peg Dawson and Richard Guare have great news: there's a lot you can do to help. The latest research in child development shows that many kids who have the brain and heart to succeed lack or lag behind in crucial "executive skills"--the fundamental habits of mind required for getting organized, staying focused, and controlling impulses and emotions. Learn easy-to-follow steps to identify your child's strengths and weaknesses, use activities and techniques proven to boost specific skills, and problem-solve daily routines. Helpful worksheets and forms can be downloaded and printed in a convenient 8 1/2" x 11" size. Small changes can add up to big improvements--this empowering book shows how.<br /><br /> See also the authors' Smart but Scattered Teens and their self-help guide for adults. Plus, an academic planner for middle and high school students and related titles for professionals.
