Not sure what to do with your externally or internally explosive child or teen for the next 3 weeks? BUY THIS BOOK!
I have used Dr. Ross Greene's techniques with many students, clients, and even my own children. It's gold.
It can transform your class or home SO quickly.
The concept? Our kids pick up some life skills easily, and others struggle. Just like some kids learn to read or sleep easily, and others struggle and need extra help.
He argues that most kids who struggle socially are just lacking basic skills. E.g. transitioning from one activity to another, asking for love or attention in a positive way, staying focused during challenging tasks, etc.
The solution? Get your child or teen involved in finding solutions. You brainstorm, then try them!
The book does an excellent job of HOW to do this process and what it could sound like with different kids or teens.
If you want the paperwork that goes with the book to do an assessment and go through the problem solving process with your child, go to this link: https://www.livesinthebalance.org/paperwork
Keep me posted on how it goes!
