About this title


When should you seek professional help for your child's behavioral, social, or learning challenges? Understanding Your Child's Puzzling Behavior is the ultimate resource for assessing your child's behavior, learning when to intervene, and knowing how to seek further help for a struggling child. Whether a child is dealing with performance issues, anxiety, noncompliance, angry outbursts, or a host of other difficulties, this book offers a step-by-step method that walks parents through the often-complex process of treating a child's problems. You'll learn

  • Not to accept any 'quick-fix' solutions
  • How to holistically assess the condition and determine the nature and cause of the behavior
  • What professionals can offer, and when to consult them

Understanding Your Child's Puzzling Behavior can help parents make informed and confident decisions about their child's well-being.

Praise for Understanding Your Child's Puzzling Behavior

'This is a terrific guide for knowledgeable parents who want to be informed consumers of care for their children. It reduces the often confusing abbreviations and psychobabble that we clinicians use into practical, easy-to-understand language.' --Holly Galbreath, PhD, child clinical psychologist and former program director, Child Study and Treatment Center

'A very useful and practical guide for those wondering where to begin to help a child who is struggling with troublesome behaviors.' --Brock Eide, MD, MA Co-Director of Eide Neurolearning Clinic and coauthor, The Mislabeled Child

'This book provides clarity for parents in situations that are often confusing and forms the basis for implementing practical and helpful changes.' --James T. Webb, PhD clinical psychologist and author, A Parent s Guide to Gifted Children

'This book is a helpful start in giving parents a systematic approach and guide to understanding the terminology and methods used by educational, medical, psychological, and other practitioners who study and work clinically with children. If parents can speak the same language and approach professionals with good documentation, perhaps a greater understanding of the child s puzzling behavior can be arrived at sooner and more effective solutions can be implemented.' --Bobbie Collins-Perry, Duke University's Duke Gifted Letter
