Your Uncaring Child - "A Survival Manual for Parents of Difficult Children", offers hope for parents who have been forced to accept guilt for the "antisocial" behavior of their children. It is a manual that challenges not only classical and modern psychology, but also the sacrosanct popular myth, "there are no bad children, only bad parents."
Readers will be introduced to the term "Uncaring Child Syndrome," and the "Uncaring Children," as it is used synonymously to characterize a child who lacks bonding and is generally disconnected from his/her caretakers. Uncaring Children lack a sense of guilt and remorse, blame others for their problems, misconduct, behaviors etc., and are skillful manipulators who demonstrate a fixed pattern of blatant hostility, selfishness, irresponsibility and callousness.
Many Uncaring Children are commonly diagnosed with Oppositional Defiant and Conduct disorders. Although these diagnoses define some of the behavioral traits of children, the Uncaring Child also has some of the character traits of Antisocial Personality Disorder of adults. Therefore, diagnosing the "Uncaring Child" requires specific data to accurately differentially diagnose this condition.
Finally, there is someone who realizes that bad children "can" happen to good parents. And now there is help and hope for those parents seeking to correct the maladaptive behavior of their children. Valerie G. Watt, Ph.D.,
