Explosive Child No More
I remember the profound relief when I read the first chapter of this book.. It was the most accurate description of my child I had come across. At this point I had tried everything and read 20+ parenting books with various discipline techniques with absolutely no result, in fact some exacerbated the problem..
I was a seasoned parent as my "explosive" child was my fourth, and yet I was at my wits end. Nothing like the others. He was labelled as "bad" by school and society and my heart broke because I knew that deep down he had the most beautiful soul (even if you had to look hard to see it), and all of my attempts (well meaning) seemed to fuelling the creation of a sociopath. This book and Dr Greene's amazing understanding was the turning point in our lives! Within a couple of days there were massive improvements..
I am happy to report I now have a far happier child who's cognitive and emotional skills are accelerating fast, he is making up for lost time, he just needed guidance in his lacking skills!!.. and I needed more understanding of what was happening..
The only regret I have is that I didn't come across this book when my son was a toddler, it would have saved the entire family years of suffering.. If you are reading this, I understand your pain, please know there is light at the end of the tunnel :) by Sharon Sweeney
