The Explosive Child
- A New Approach for Understanding and Parenting Easily Frustrated, Chronically Inflexible Children
- By: Dr. Ross W. Greene
- Narrated by: Dr. Ross W. Greene
- Length: 2 hrs and 38 mins
Dr. Ross Greene, a distinguished clinician and pioneer in the treatment of kids with social, emotional, and behavioral challenges, has worked with thousands of explosive children, and he has good news: these kids aren't attentionseeking, manipulative, or unmotivated, and their parents aren't passive, permissive disciplinarians. Rather, explosive kids are lacking some crucial skills in the domains of flexibility/adaptability, frustration tolerance, and problem solving, and they require a different approach.
Great advice, for any parent. A must read!

Gods gift! The relief it provides is astounding
For me, this was a rollercoaster of emotions because I have a child who the audio describes to a T and I'm also the parent with the typical replies as described, the feeling of guilt I felt to the relief to find a very functional plan which could help my family a LOT was overwhelming but I cannot wait to put my plan (or 3) into action!!!
