Description

Decisive Parenting teaches parents concrete skills for quickly and permanently altering their teenagers' problem behaviors, ranging from argumentativeness and neglecting chores or homework to more serious issues such as shoplifting, underage drinking, and drug use. Michael Hammond provides clear, easy-to-follow, and proven solutions to permanently stop negative behavior while establishing good behavior in its place. By adapting Hammond's 'active consequences' strategy, parents can expect to see major changes in their teenagers' behavior in three to six weeks, as well as great improvement in the parent-child relationship.show more
