The solutions in this book were ridiculous. Basically reward a child when they are being naughty. As for giving clay to a child who is having a tantrum, I'd only advise this if you want to scrub clean an entire room.
Misguided, probably well intentioned, but ultimately very poor parenting or carer advice. If you are going to buy one book, the best I have found is The Good, the Bad and the Irritating: A Practical Approach for Parents of Children who are Attention Seeking: A Practical Approach for Parents of Children Who Are Attention Seeking (Lucky Duck Books) as it is a much better book. It helps you deal with, and defuse, tantrums or misbehaviour that can escalate with any child.
I would suggest that, even using the American interpretation, that mad is a poor way of explaining s child's feeling when they want to hit. More likely they are simply bored, tired, trying , experimenting, or just being a plain rascal. I promise you that this will be the worst book you will buy. Hopefully there are alternatives out there, I know that I am going to look elsewhere.
The suggestions for dealing with misbehaviour are fatuous. Only one page explores hitting, then the book moves on to mistreating animals, throwing a tantrum, damaging another child's property and tongue pulling. The suggested remedies? In order: the adult should fetch out the pots, pans and wooden spoons for the child to clatter and bang them and add unwanted noise to the misbehaviour; fetch out the clay and let the child attack that instead, adding mess-making to the problem; conjure up autumn leaves (bit tricky this, nine months of the year) for the child to mash up; produce an art pad and easel for the child to scribble on; and, best of all, this is my personal favourite, when the child pulls his tongue out at Mum, give him an ice lolly to lick with said tongue.
The final page asks the child if he feels better now, to which he replies yes and states that he's not mad anymore - unlike any adult who follows this advice and expects it to modify or extinguish misbehaviour. What were the writer and the publisher thinking? Stark raving mad.
