Having a child with challenging behaviour can be frustrating and affect the entire family. This Workbook is designed to help parents create a more positive attitude toward a child and carry out effective steps to improve behaviour. The program outlined in this workbook can be tailored to a child's and family's needs and goals. It helps parents to identify what sets off a child's problem behaviour, as well as what a child gets or avoids from misbehaving. It will help parents learn strategies to prevent problems, manage consequences, and teach a child new skills. With the help of a facilitator parents can design a behaviour support plan, learn how to think more positively, and homework assignments will help assess the child's behaviour, apply new strategies, and track the family's progress.
