Tricky Kids: Transforming Conflict and Freeing Their Potential
What makes some kids 'tricky'? They've found one particular way to get what they want in the world, and they've kept using that approach over and over again.
They are not 'bad' kids, but they can make their parents and teachers feel like doing some very bad things. Why? Because they are used to getting their own way, and they are not the type of people to give up an advantage easily. Is there one in your life?
They come in a variety of flavours: the Negotiator (think Bart Simpson), the Competitor (shades of Lance Armstrong), the Dare Devil (inspired by the late Steve Irwin), the hard-to-beat Debater (echoes of Margaret Thatcher) - and more.
They also come in a variety of sizes, from littlies up to towering teens - and they're a handful! Andrew Fuller, once a very tricky kid, brings 25 years of expertise with these kids to this humorous and insightful book. He shows parents and teachers how to understand these sweet little darlings, manage their moods and help them develop positive life habits. If you dream of occasionally winning at home - or in the classroom - this is the book for you!
