By Ross W. Greene. Ph.D. HarperCollins, 1998.

Years after toddler tantrums should have become an unpleasant memory, a few unlucky parents find themselves battling with sudden, inexplicable, disturbingly violent rages-along with crushing guilt about what they "did wrong." Ross Greene, a pediatric psychologist who teaches at Harvard Medical School, makes a bold and humane attempt in this book to cut through the blather and speak directly to the (usually desperate) parents of explosive children. Dialogue from actual sessions with parents and children is interspersed with analysis oriented toward understanding the origins of "meltdowns" and developing workable strategies.
