Living with Children: New Methods for Parents and Teachers.
Patterson, Gerald R.; Gullion, M. Elizabeth
Written in the form of programmed instruction, this book is designed to help parents and teachers understand and correct situations in which a child's behavior is distressing. The book utilizes the social learning approach (that people learn most behavior patterns from other people). The first section discusses how parents and children learn and teaches about reinforcers, how children train parents, accidental training, and how to observe and retrain one's child. The second section on changing undesirable behavior presents clues for helping belligerent, reluctant, overly active, dependent, frightened or withdrawn children. Sample behavior graphs are provided.
