How To Change Childrens Behavior-Quickly
Hi, my name is Dr. Griggs. I've been a psychologist
in private practice for over two decades. I love writing
ebooks on subjects that matter, and here's another one.
I've spent years honing what works and what doesn't.
I've read lots and lots of self-help books, and most of
them sort of hit the mark. All of them have some fat.
Mine hits the mark and has no fat. It's clear, concise
and is easy to read. It's academic without the
This book is about changing children's behavior. It
isn't a parenting book, because in my opinion those books
focus too much on the content of daily living rather than
the process of living daily. I'll explain. Parenting books
focus more on what to say when a child doesn't cooperate.
Parenting books focus more on rules, like appropriate
bedtimes. Parenting books focus on norms, like what is OK
and not OK in any given circumstances. These are content
issues; that is, they focus on what the issue is on the
surface, at the moment.
Process analysis focuses on the dynamics underlying
the content. The forces that govern human behavior surface
in specific examples (content), but the underlying processes
that create these experiences are dynamic, internal forces.
They are usually out of awareness. Understand these and any
content behaviors can be dealt with without the content
biases. Biases can be cultural, religious, ethnic, etc.
Process analysis bypasses these limitations, giving
caregivers more freedoms to understand and change behaviors
because the causes of the behavior are addressed, not just
the situation, context or other superficial aspects.
Process awareness gives the added advantage of making
interventions last longer, because they generalize to more
situations. Oh, by the way, if you still want to to express
your cultural, ethnic or religious beliefs, you can. My
system doesn't touch them.
Who should read this ebook" Parents, of course, but any
adult who cares for children. Teachers can use these
techniques in the classroom, where they work en masse, not
just on one or two kids. Instructors in classes for kids
(swimming, karate, etc.) will have the same successes. Day
care supervisors and after-school boys and girls club
programs staff get good results using this material.
Why buy this ebook" Parents and children collide, just
about every day. If this is not your case, you don't need
what I have to offer. But most parents, teachers, etc.
struggle with their children and/or students at some point,
often regularly. These are the folks that should look at my
publication. Conflict, especially regular conflict, is painful.
My material changes the dynamics of behavior, hence reduces
the pain. Even if there aren't a lot of problems, my material
will make the existing good behaviors look pretty dull after
you understand my techniques.
One parent told me I should put a disclaimer at the
beginning of the ebook, stating something like, "WARNING,
Your child will be too well behaved. You might have to sit
down." Well, that was overstating it, but it felt good to me.
The reward to you is less stress, more cooperation, less
discipline, more complimenting and smoother communication.
In short, I'm trying to create better living environments
between kids and the adults in their lives. Parents and their
children feel better after implementing my techniques. The
rewards are multiple. Relationships improve. "Bad" experiences
diminish. All this happens-fast. What I'm presenting is a
concise set of descriptions of the processes underlying
behavior. I write about what the terms are, how they work,
why they are important and most importantly, how to use them
and engage children. When engaged, children respond. Adults
see change, often right away. Understanding the dynamic
elationships between the concepts is what I teach and what
allows the reader to change children's behavior, quickly.
In sum, all of the complaints I hear from parents,
teachers and other adults about children usually default
to one big idea: relationships. When things don't go smoothly,
relationships suffer. When relationships are crummy, things
don't go smoothly. Parenting books mostly cover the "things"
over which parents, teachers and other adults collide with
their charges. I bypass most of that (that's what standard
parenting books are for); instead I target the dynamic
underpinnings that create and control such collsions and then
adjust the dynamics to change the experience for both parent
and child. The result is that relationships and "things"
change, quickly, for the better.
Again, this ebook has no fat. Think of it as a "Cliffs
Notes" publication. It's "sort of" a quick read (about two
or three hours for the first reading), because I have to
explain stuff using terms you probably haven't heard before.
"Behavioral types;" that is, teachers and adults with some
psychology background will recognize about 60% of the terms.
Nobody has published what I present as the glue that makes
these concepts work. I think this is why my ebook does a
better job. The theory I espouse is different from standard
"behavior change" books. It works better. I've put together
a hard hitting, direct "How To" manual. My research has not
turned up another ebook that does what mine does.
Ebooks are replacing standard books because they are
easier and quicker to obtain. There is a need for immediate
information, reasonably priced. I've priced this ebook to be
at least twenty percent undermarket, considering what
bookstores charge and the travel costs to and from. The ebook
is 28 pages and can be immediately downloaded.
