Small Criminals Among Us
How to Recognize and Change Children's Antisocial Behavior Before They ExplodeeBook - 2016
With tales of horrible crimes perpetrated by children filling newspaper headlines, the public, families, teachers, police personnel and therapists dealing with "problem children" are in a quandary: What can be done to identify and help such troubled youngsters before they explode? Now, respected psychologist Dr. Gad Czudner reveals the keys to detection and prevention of destructive thoughts in children that evolve into violent and destructive acts against others later in life. Working with both troubled children and convicted felons for over 25 years, Dr. Czudner examines the tell-tale signs of children capable of committing crimes - among them self-centeredness, lying, power and control urges, lack of responsibility, distortions of love, low frustration tolerance, resentment of authority and lack of empathy. These danger signals can alert family members and therapists to a budding criminal early enough to impart treatment. Moreover, describing why traditional methods of eliminating specific behavior patterns don't work, Dr. Czudner presents a five-step process for teaching children compassion, changing the criminal child into a socially responsible one.
