No More Meltdowns

No More Meltdowns: Positive Strategies for Dealing with and Preventing Out-Of-Control Behavior No More Meltdowns: Positive Strategies for Dealing with and Preventing Out-Of-Control Behavior by Jed Baker

My rating: 3 of 5 stars
This book was given to me by my son's counselor. It has step-by-step instructions for cooling off a tantrum while it's happening, and then guides you through training your child to not have tantrums. It approaches almost every conceivable situation with individual methods that follow a basic formula.

I have had a few successful situations following this book. I think it has good basics as long as the parent is willing to follow through.

Pub. Date: April 2008

Synopsis: If you have a child with challenging behavior problems, this book was written for you! Many components of Dr. Bakers approachbased on years of applied researchwere initially intended for children on the autism spectrum. However, over the years, he has discovered that they are equally applicable to all children with behavior problems. In the first two chapters you will learn what a meltdown is and why children have them. In the subsequent eight chapters, you will learn what to do about them. This book offers logical, flexible strategies for dealing with out-of-control behaviors.
