Oftentimes parents have difficulty in finding the right resource for their child's challenging behavior and don't know where to turn for help. These parents need direction and support.
"Understanding Your Child's Puzzling Behavior", by Dr. Steve Curtis - (http://lifespanpress.blogspot.com), just garnered an iParenting Media Awards nod. Not only did they give this guide a big stamp of approval, but they noted that this groundbreaking resource should be "recommended to all parents who are struggling with how to understand their children". Aptly emphasized was that "so many parents are faced with trying to decipher their children's behavior and how to handle it." This guide is a "much needed book in this day and time."
