A parent’s guide to addressing their children’s horrible behavioural issues.

Children can be difficult (and worse) - this is a natural part of growing up. For parents, though, it can be especially difficult to deal with conflict with their own children, and often patterns of behaviour that get stuck can make things worse. This book shows how, as parents, we can create structures, methods, and situations that work so that children can have a sense of security, belonging, and autonomy, and practise self-control and cooperation. Through the practical explanations and examples provided in this book, parents will learn to identify the misunderstandings that can lead to negative behaviour and how to use strategies that help to make everyday life simple and manageable for their children.

Bo Hejlskov Elven has extensive experience as a psychologist and is very well-known in the autism field

One of the first of its kind to discuss the 'low arousal' approach, an innovative theory in child psychology

Wide-reaching market with strategies that can translate across different relationships

Packed with practical explanations and accessible advice

Bo Hejlskov Elvén is a clinical psychologist based in Sweden. He is an independent consultant and lecturer on autism and challenging behaviour and an accredited Studio III trainer. In 2009, he was awarded the Puzzle Piece of the Year prize by the Swedish Autism Society for his lecturing and counselling on challenging behaviour. Tina Wiman is a specialist in the field of IT-support for children with special needs.

Oscar Wilde advised that if we wanted children to be good we first needed to make them happy. In this simply written, yet sophisticated book Bo Hejlskov Elvén and Tina Wiman invite us to understand the child's perspective through understanding our own part in it. Clear narrative and powerful vignettes combine to illustrate a range of gentle strategies to prevent or deal with conflict and confrontation that will appeal to parents and teachers alike. - Richard Mills, Research Autism and University of Bath

Sulky, Rowdy, Rude? Yet again Bo Hejlskov Elven and his colleague Tina Wiman have produced a wonderfully reflective book for families to help them focus on the behaviour of their child. In my view this book can also be read by frontline carers and other professionals working with children. There are a series of easy to read chapters which focus on how to understand the behaviour of young children and the low arousal approach permeates the entire book. In a user friendly way there are many themes that focus on how we perceive behaviours. Chapters include: 'Children behave well if they can' and my personal favourite 'conflicts consist of solutions'. The authors tailor the book well to their main audience. I would recommend this book widely. - Andrew McDonnell, Ph.D., CEO Studio3, Clinical Psychologist, and Visiting Professor of Autism Studies at Birmingham City University, UK
