The Explosive Child
- A New Approach for Understanding and Parenting Easily Frustrated, Chronically Inflexible Children
- By: Dr. Ross W. Greene
- Narrated by: Dr. Ross W. Greene
- Length: 2 hrs and 38 mins
Dr. Ross Greene, a distinguished clinician and pioneer in the treatment of kids with social, emotional, and behavioral challenges, has worked with thousands of explosive children, and he has good news: these kids aren't attentionseeking, manipulative, or unmotivated, and their parents aren't passive, permissive disciplinarians. Rather, explosive kids are lacking some crucial skills in the domains of flexibility/adaptability, frustration tolerance, and problem solving, and they require a different approach.

In just one day I was able to alter the course of my relationship with my children. I was dealing with explosive temper tantrums that would last 40 mins on average, from my highly intelligent child, the stress was overwhelming and exhausting. Traditional methods were not working. Not knowing when the next outburst would occur and how to manage it affectively. Then I found this book by chance. So grateful for what I've learnt and for finding it early and avoiding a lifetime of tension. My girls are strong willed and I love that about them. This book teaches how to parent from a place of compassion and kindness, not punishment and reward. From the bottom of my heart, Dr Greene, thank you for your work.

Worst narration ever. Do not buy audible version

Stressful to listen to!
I find the narrators voice and intensity way to stressful to. There's a unnecessary sense of urgency in his desire to relay his opinion. Interesting "facts" and opinions but unfortunately it's quite unpleasant to listen to.
