Hi all, I am new here. I am the mom of a beautiful, difficult, explosive child who makes our family life often very unpleasant. I am so tired battling her and I am working hard on husband to consider Ross Greene's approach to explosive children. I hope that I can bring him on board and start implementing Greene's strategies. I read the book a while ago, husband hasn't. I am "making" him watch videos of a introductory speech by Greene, so hopefully that'll be a good start. I wondered whether there are good summaries out there of the book. husband is very smart and will be better able to use the philosophy with straight forward pointers. Any other tips to motivate a spouse and for implementing the philosophy are most welcome too because I know I will struggle with this as well and I don't want to have to run to my room leafing through the book every five minutes LOL. Oh and do you have a glossary with all the abbreviations? I am not familiar with most (I use the "d" for "dear" or "****" depending on their behavior lol, and then of course "d" for daughter, "s" for son and "h" for husband).
