The Explosive Child
BY ROSS W. GREENE
Why are some children calm and laid-back while others are challenging and difficult to calm?
The Explosive Child book defines kids with challenging behavior as “inflexible-explosive”. Kids who are seemingly explosive are stuck with inflexibility that prevents them from switching their mindset from one settings to the next. These children also have problem self-regulating. As a result, they easily explode when faced with transitions.
This book introduces strategies that can help parents who have kids with low flexibility and a low tolerance for frustration. Many parents with Oppositional Defiance Disorder kids find it a useful resource.
