From the Publisher:

Are bad blow-ups the norm? Are you feeling battle-weary and ineffective? Do you worry that punishing your child will make him resent you and worsen your relationship?

Finally, here's a book that will address all these problems, plus help you overcome your child's defiant attitude, build your child's self-esteem, and restore the natural balance of power in your home. Try and Make Me! offers a common-sense approach to child-rearing that ends the madness, prevents future violence, and helps children become the cooperative and well-adjusted "big people" they innately want to be.

Longtime child therapists Ray Levy and Bill O'Hanlon first explore the various ways a child becomes defiant-- some are born that way; some take their clues from their parents. Then, the authors center in on control-who has it, what it means to the defiant child, and how adults like you can regain it in a way that actually helps your child grow. For example, don't always try to stop your child from making mistakes--he needs to make them to grow.

Next, you'll Learn how to use Levy and O'Hanlon's seven-step program for changing behavior. From targeting a specific behavior you want to alter to keeping track of progress in a journal, this easy-to-follow plan will give you the confidence you need to press on and will make a profound difference in the life of your child and yourself.

Try and Make Me! emphasizes the importance of avoiding power struggles with children and provides many clever ways to do so, including proven techniques such as "Brain-Dead Phrases," "Academies," "Guided Compliance," and "Pulling in the Reins." These approaches will put an end to the screaming battles and teach your child that behaving is in his best interest, not yours.

Packed with enlightening anecdotes, both personal and professional, Try and Make Me! will make you laugh, cry, and nod in recognition. Its infectious hopefulness will give you courage to persist even when hope seems lost. Read this book, follow its advice, then watch the tension subside and your relationship with your child flourish.
