Dr. Egan's first book, Better Behavior for Ages 2-10: Small Miracles That Work Like Magic (Lesson Ladder, 2013) is an easy-to-read, practical book. Parents can learn how to effectively elicit positive behavior from their children.
Your child is a small miracle that you treasure immensely. When your child misbehaves, however, it can lead to feeling that you have failed as a parent, often followed by family, friends, and even strangers offering well-intentioned but stress-inducing advice.
Better Behavior for Ages 2-10 was written to share author Dr. Tara Egan’s clinically-proven methods for handling, modifying, and most importantly, completely preventing difficult behavior. Dr. Egan's strategies and advice about child behavior are easy to understand and implement.
This guidebook provides pre-emptive strategies for parents who are struggling with their child’s behavior to set the stage for good behavior:
Preventive and proactive strategies to stop misbehavior before it occurs.
Reactive strategies to address and eliminate existing problem behaviors.
Dr. Egan’s easy-to-use behavioral success model that parents can implement right away to motivate and reinforce good behavior.
From learning the importance of “role modeling” to motivating and disciplining in a way that will reinforce good behavior—Better Behavior for Ages 2-10 will guide you every step of the way. This book offers effective solutions for eliminating stress while strengthening the loving relationship between you and your child.
