Too often books about disobedient children are not helpful to parents because they offer one approach for all children who misbehave. In reality, there are different causes for rebellious behavior. A child could be strong-willed or could have a more serious problem like bipolar disorder, oppositional defiant disorder, or an autistic spectrum disorder. Or the problem might be with a parent's emotional state or with the marriage. Dr. Gottlieb helps parents figure out the underlying cause for their child's behavior. Your Child is Defiant: Why is Nothing Working? is unique in two important ways: 1) it explains the diagnostic process in a way parents can apply to their own son or daughter, and 2) it shows parents what to do for each possible cause. This book is the first detailed step-by-step guide for parents whose children repeatedly misbehave.
