Topics covered include: (1) parents' dual roles as caregivers and decision makers; and (2) impediments to and possibilities for changes in children's behavior. Part 2, "The Four-Step Plan," discusses the particular steps parents can follow in modifying their child's behavior. Topics covered include: (1) how to be specific about your expectations for your child; (2) ways to remain calm and confident in your parenting; (3) how to select the best course of action; and (4) how to nurture supportive relationships with other parents.
