I was just finally checking out The Explosive Child. I question, though, if it's right for difficult child's situation. I need a book that maybe addresses: Extreme hyperactiveness Extreme defiance Depression Secretly sadistic to animals No focus "Baby" behavior Stealing Impulse control Running away Wreckless ("invincible") behavior At times, agression towards adults (rarely kids), but not on a frequent basis Having read the waffle incident, it seems to target more constant agressive behavior. My son is more, as he labled himself, "the school clown", but to the point of school being nothing but a work-free circus. Is this book worth buying for these reasons? Is there a better book I could buy?
