This fully revised third edition includes new chapters that focus on promoting a child’s social, emotional and language development as well as the ability to persist and be successful in school.
All children misbehave sometimes! Some children are temperamentally more difficult to parent because they are impulsive, hyperactive, inattentive, or delayed in some aspect of their development. This invaluable handbook uses the Incredible Years Parenting Pyramid as the architectural or construction plan for specific parenting tools that help prevent behaviour problems from occurring and promote children’s social, emotional and academic competence and healthy lifestyles.
The book helps parents to build a strong positive relationship foundation before using respectful discipline tools to reduce target behaviour problems. The book also focuses on tools for building family relationships and support networks as well as problem-solving methods and self-regulation skills to manage stress.
