80 uncommon solutions for everyday parenting problems. There are some children who are a sheer pleasure to be around and then there are others who have a penchant for mischief. For the last 60 years, comic strip lovers who adore Hank Kethcham's Dennis The Menace have enjoyed the humorous antics of a boy who always manages to get into trouble regardless of his parents' efforts. Hollywood has capitalized on this with movies such as Problem Child, Nanny McPhee to reality TV shows like Nanny 911. We have all seen kids out there that act out. Clearly, they are the ones in charge of their parents as they demonstrate bad behavior, especially in public places like supermarkets, restaurants and parks. Some parents, who are at the end of their rope, will try anything in hopes of getting their kids to listen. The bottom line is this: children that demonstrate bad behavior are tough to handle because they tend to disobey rules or orders. What if you could use your child's uncooperative behavior to positively reinforce good behavior? In the book, Dr. Riley's Box of Tricks, 80 uncommon solutions for everyday parenting problems,this is exactly what Dr. Douglas Riley instructs troubled parents to do. In this segment of The Organic View Radio Show, host, June Stoyer will speak to Dr. Douglas Riley, EdD, who is a licensed clinical psychologist with more than thirty years of experience working with children, adolescents, and parents.
