by Ross W. Greene, Ph.D.
For Elementary

This highly accessible and engaging book offers a practical, comprehensive approach for understanding and helping children who are easily frustrated, chronically inflexible, and highly volatile. While the book is addressed largely to parents, educators can use the principles and strategies in the classroom to:

  • Help these children improve their capacities for flexibility, frustration tolerance, communication, and self-regulation
  • Promote these students' academic and social success
  • Create an environment in which explosions are less likely to occur and learn
  • How to respond to early warning signs of impending melt-downs

"Dr. Greene provides compelling strategies for meeting the needs of the most challenging children within the context of the regular classroom."
