Is it “just a phase,” or could your child be headed for serious trouble?If you sense that your child is seriously troubled, you may feel bewildered, helpless, ineffective. How can you stop your child from throwing away his or her life? How can you avoid thinking that you’ve failed as a parent? In this newly revised and expanded edition of the classic guide Before It’s Too Late, clinical psychologist Stanton E. Samenow explains how to break the useless cycle of blame and take corrective action. Topics include: * How to understand the personality of the antisocial child * How to tell the difference between a “phase” and a pattern of misbehavior * How to identify the seven common manifestations of antisocial behavior * How to cope more effectively as the parent of an older antisocial child * How to avoid the six common mistakes that prevent parents from taking action * How to step in—early and effectively—before bad behavior becomes entrenched
This is a body of work which gives concerned parents and professionals instructive insight into the personality of "problem children" and gives practical suggestions for taking corrective and remedial steps before it’s too late.
