Publisher's Description

Discover a way to end constant power struggles with your defiant, oppositional, "impossible" 5- to 12-year-old, with the help of leading child psychologist Russell A. Barkley. Dr. Barkley's approach is research based, practical, and doable--and leads to lasting behavior change. Vivid, realistic stories illustrate what the techniques look like in action.

*Harness the power of positive attention and praise.
*Use rewards and incentives effectively.
*Stay calm and consistent--even on the worst of days.
*Establish a time-out system that works.
*Target behavioral issues at home, in school, and in public places.
