Before It’s Too Late: Why Some Kids Get Into Trouble–and What Parents Can Do About It
by Stanton E. Samenow, Ph.D.
Some parents are confused by the contradictory, surprising and confounding behavior of their children. These children seek out danger and excitement, break rules on purpose, and seek out friends who are dishonest, drug and drinking or violent. These are children who may be on the road to school and conduct problems and antisocial behaviors. In his book, “Before It’s Too Late”, Dr. Samenow clarifies the ways of thinking that parents should look for and he gives advice on how to respond to children who break the rules and become destructive to themselves or others. It is very painful when children reject the guidance of their parents. In this book parents can learn how to step in before behavior becomes an established pattern. The author carefully identifies errors in our culture, parents and professionals that fail to take behaviors such as stealing, drug abuse and hurting others seriously. Parents will find this a resource to understand troubled children and learn how to take corrective action.
