From the author of "The Defiant Child (60,000 copies sold) comes the first book to connect explosive behavior--when kids go from Jekyll to Hyde and back in the blink of an eye--with its underlying causes.

Does your hitting, kicking, screaming child explode with so little provocation that you can’t help but wonder if he’s possessed? Are his extreme tantrums becoming the stuff of playground legend? And are you about to lose your job because his daycare or school is asking too often for you to pick him up early?

Dr. Douglas Riley’s ear-to-the-ground insights will give much-needed help to desperate parents who have one overriding question: Why does my child act like this? This compassionate yet no-nonsense therapist explains that the explosive behavior is the mere tip of the iceberg. Instead of using a one-size-fits-all strategy, Dr. Riley identifies the eleven most common causes of explosions and accordingly tailors his treatment strategies to address the underlying cause of the behavior.

"What Your Explosive Child Is Trying to Tell You" is a lifeline for parents who are at their wits’ ends.
