Product Description

From the Author

This book is different than others on difficult children
"Children Who Say No When You Want Them to Say Yes" is unique in that it describes typical behavior at each year of age from infancy through adolescence. In each year, the usual behavior of children is described and then the typical ways children express their individuality and autonomy is also explained. Then, the difficult, resistent, and challenging behaviors of that age are given. Finally, advice for handling the normal and difficult behaviors of each age is provided.

From the Back Cover

Praise for James Windell's Previous Books Discipline "A rational, straightforward compilation of methods and approaches to child discipline that every parent should require at one time or another…helpful and well organized." —Publishers Weekly "[Windell] deals with teens in a respectful but firm manner…straightforward, readable." —Family Times 8 Weeks to a Well–Behaved Child "In down–to–earth language, Windell covers ‘fair’ and ‘unfair’ punishment, how to use reprimands, time out, and removal of privileges. He helps parents who may have been confused, inconsistent, or helplessly permissive to find confidence." —Detroit Free Press Does your child:
  • deliberately disobey?
  • listen only when he or she wants to?
  • challenge every request you make?
  • talk back incessantly?
  • make you feel like a bad parent?
Do you:
  • feel angry, frustrated, or inadequate as a parent?
  • resent your defiant child?
  • constantly engage in a battle–of–wills over control?
  • doubt your abilities to be a supportive, caring parent?
Here is a practical resource for parents dealing with children's resistance, stubbornness, opposition, and defiance. Combining concrete, effective advice with illuminating case studies drawn from his years of practice, renowned psychotherapist James Windell helps parents recognize, understand, and cope with a child's resistant behavior—whether it arises as part of a normal stage of growth, stems from a child's temperament, or has developed from other, less easily definable sources. Children Who Say No When You Want Them To Say Yes is an essential reference for parents striving to raise successful children from angelic infancy through the terrible twos to the troubled teens.

Format: Paperback
Dr Windell's book is really more about general parenting than dealing with oppositional children. He barely discussses Oppositional Defiant Disorder(ODD), and then in a clinical framework. The big problem is the author wants to blame the parents for a child's oppositional behavior. "No child is born oppositional" he states, "They are made that way". Unless you have lived with ODD, you just don't understand. And, Dr Windell's children are no doubt GFG(Gifts from God), and he doesn't understand that parenting contributes, but most certainly isn't the whole problem. Ask any parent who has as ODD child and a non ODD child, parented the same. There is something there besides bad parenting.

Wonderful Resource 27 April 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I found the information in this book very helpful. I have two very small children and it helped me distinguish what is normal for their ages and what is inappropriate behaviour. I prefer using non-physical methods of discipline and I am happy to see a book that is focused on this.
