A to Z Guide to Your Child's Behavior: A Parent's Easy and Authoritative Reference to Hundreds of Everyday Problems and Concerns from Birth to 12 Years.
Mrazek, David; And Others
The product of a close collaboration between mental health and child development professionals, this book provides essential information about the many types of behaviors--both normal and atypical--that children can show, with a sensitivity to the complex issues that child behavior problems can sometimes create for mothers and fathers. Following an introduction to parenting skills such as active listening and rewards and time-outs, the book discusses various child behaviors, arranged in alphabetical order. The behaviors discussed include such common problems as bedwetting, biting, nightmares, and temper tantrums. Other less common problems discussed include: (1) anxiety; (2) compulsions; (3) depression; (4) reactions to divorce or death; (5) learned helplessness; (6) oppositional behavior; (7) perfectionism; (8) rocking; (9) cruelty to animals; and (10) staring. An appendix provides a chart of developmental tasks for different age ranges through age 12. (HTH)
