Pub. Date:
Philip S. Hall, a licensed psychologist, and Nancy D. Hall, who works in education administration, provide an approach for parents for dealing with defiant children, with practical ideas for improving their behavior and changing the relationship parents have with them. Preventing defiant behavior is first discussed, including getting a diagnosis, reducing stressors and lessening their impact, changing the home environment, strengthening the parent-child relationship, communicating better, and establishing routines. The second section focuses on managing noncompliance and defiance, with tips on handling specific situations and rules and punishment. The book ends with a discussion of how to help the child when at school or in the community. The authors also wrote Educating Oppositional Defiant Children.
