Finally! Jul 31, 2008
Finally a book that is easy to read, easy to understand, easy to follow through with. A must have for all persons dealing with any kind of meltdowns. I will even recommend this for children without disabilities.
Jed Baker gives us a true insight to what is happening befor,during, and after a meltdown. Real ways to figure out why they happen, what to do during and after, and how to stop them. I will be sharing this book with the school, friends and family. It is a must read for any one who works with children of all kinds. I have already begun using his strategies and have seen what they can do for a child.
A Must Have Jul 11, 2008
Parenting doesn't come with an instruction book, but thanks to Dr. Baker we can use No More Meltdowns. It's a practical, hands-on guide that helps you to understand WHY certain behaviors happen. I've struggled through so many of the scenarios he describes and I especially appreciate his Quick Reference Guides. This book has helped me (and my children) in so many ways that I've started giving it as a baby shower gift!!
Excellent resource for managing the peace in my household! Jul 7, 2008
I found this book to be incredibly helpful because it gives specific information about how to manage my kids behavior. I have 3 kids ranging in age from 5-11 and I think that the specific examples of situations and how they were dealt with to be very informative. I have already implemented some of what I read with very good results. I've read many parenting books and have usually found them to be written in a complicated way. This book uses every day language with practical advice on how to have a more harmonious relationship with my kids. I highly recommend this book.
Thanks for the book! Jun 16, 2008
What I liked about Dr. Baker's book is how sympathetic he sounds to those of us who deal daily with children with emotional and cognitive disorders or just plain difficulties. At the same time, he doesn't let us off the hook nor lull us into thinking that our responses to explosive situations, however understandable and legitimate, may not be the right ones. He clearly has the hands-on experience, both with kids and with those who care for and work with them. He gives just the right amount of personal anecdote to balance the more academic research data. He graciously recommends books and articles written by others working in the field, while synthesizing their many approaches. And importantly, he addresses teachers and parents both, which hopefully helps all of us to think of each other as teammates rather than assigners or bearers of blame. Plus, he gives lots of good, practical suggestions. Thanks for No More Meltdowns!
