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?
- 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?

Also: I turned out great. Still defiant, but functionally so.
