"This is a very valuable book for parents who feel out of control with a difficult child. There are valuable insights into the child's built-in reasons for being difficult. And the suggestions for helping the child learn to manage his or her own self-regulation will certainly lead to your goal as a parent--self-control and self-esteem!" - T. Berry Brazelton, Professor Emeritus of Pediatrics, Harvard Medical School, USA "Effective Parenting for the Hard-to-Manage Child is a wonderful resource for parents struggling to understand their children's emotional and behavioral issues. Every chapter first explains common problems, and second provides strategies to assist in management of children's difficulties." - Lucy Jane Miller, PhD, founder and executive director, SPD Foundation, USA "[Effective Parenting for the Hard-to-Manage Child] offer[s] advice for parents culled from decades of clinical practice...useful for parents who are stymied by difficult behavior that occurs habitually or sporadically." - Sandra G. Boodman in Washington Post
