Parenting strategies for child behaviour problems
It is common for parents to experience difficulties with effectively managing their child s noncompliant and defiant behaviour.
Brenda loves her 6 year-old son, Jake, but lately has been finding that his bad behaviour is causing her a tremendous amount of frustration. In particular, Jake never does what she tells him to do, and he will often shout and have temper tantrums in order to get his way. He has even begun to exhibit this behaviour at school, and was recently suspended for punching another student in the arm. Brenda has gotten lots of different parenting advice from family and friends, but is uncertain about the best way to help improve her son s behaviour.
