What Your Explosive Child is Trying to Tell You
Does your hitting, kicking, screaming child explode with so little provocation that you can’t help but wonder if he’s possessed? Are his extreme tantrums becoming the stuff of playground legend? And are you about to lose your job because his daycare or school repeatedly asks you to pick him up early?
Dr. Douglas Riley’s ear-to-the-ground insights will give much-needed help to desperate parents who have one overriding question – Why does my child act like this? This compassionate yet no-nonsense therapist explains that explosive behaviour is the mere tip of the iceberg. Instead of using a one-size-fits-all strategy, Dr. Riley identifies the eleven most common causes of explosions and accordingly tailors his treatment strategies to address the underlying cause of the behaviour.
