Parenting with Positive Behavior Support: A Practical Guide to Resolving Your Child’s Difficult Behavior

Categories: , Tag:


Now the theory and research behind the positive behavior support (PBS) process — an approach already proven effective in schools and community programs — has been transformed into a practical, easy-to-use guide that’s perfect for sharing with parents. Developed by educators and families, this user-friendly handbook offers parents easy-to-follow guidelines for identifying the reasons for their children’s behavior and effectively intervening through three basic methods:

  • preventing problems
  • replacing behavior
  • managing consequences

The included exercises and worksheets help parents easily track their child’s progress, and three illuminating chapter-long case studies walk parents through PBS and show them how this process can transform family life.
