Brilliant Video On How To Parent A Defiant Child.

I reckon the people at Yale University Parenting Center and Child Conduct Clinic must know a thing or two about parenting a defiant child ! This unit is headed by Dr.Alan Kazdin who has also written a book on the subject.

His overall approach is based on the principle that children learn from OUR behavior, so if we react to bad behavior by screaming or yelling, then that is not a good model for our children and our reaction will backfire and we will never be able to parent a defiant child. Our aim is to get the child to show respect and comply with our wishes. Watch the video below just to get a sample of what is involved in parenting skills and how behavior modification techniques such as these can make all the difference.
