Is your child
Hard to Please? Dishonest? Scared to Sleep Alone?
Then keep reading to find out how a BOOK can help cure your child's behavior problem.
A new approach
that takes your child's EGO
Grown-ups aren't the only people with egos. What do you think the "terrible twos" were about? No one likes being told what to do. That's why your child's favorite word became "No."
Your child is still that same child, whatever his or her age. The only thing that has changed is how your child rebels against being told what to do.
Instead of being the kid with the problem, your child gets to read a funny book about someone else with a problem. Your child gets to see the problem from the outside. Your child gets to think:
I don't want to be like that kid.
The books depict a child experiencing a problem behavior much like your child's problem behavior.
In the books, the child with the behavior doesn't see what the big deal is. That is, until the behavior starts resulting in unpleasant consequences.
Once the problem becomes apparent to the child in the book, there's another roadblock: the behavior isn't so easy for the child to correct.
That's when a loving grown-up appears...ready to make observations and suggestions that help the child in the book self-correct.
Self-correction is important! If you want a good behavior to persist, your child needs to
These books (ebooks, actually) may look quite plain to you. Believe it or not, that's a huge part of what makes them special.
The Child Behavior Books are written like picture books, but one version has no pictures and the other has only coloring book pictures. Either way, there's no color until your child adds it.
Why? Because every time your child contributes color or a new illustration to the book, it's one more repetition of the story's important message.
Imagine that - a learning tool that your child chooses to keep returning to!
Q: Is my child the right age for your books?
A: If your child is still at an age where she/he enjoys coloring or drawing, then the Child Behavior Books should be a perfect fit!
How the Child Behavior Books Came to Be
When I was in high school, I tutored. In college I became a "Big Brother" for the first time. I've been a foster father as well.
I believe in children. I believe in their potential. When a child isn't succeeding, I figure it's because a loving adult hasn't yet figured out how to help that child succeed!If your child is experiencing a problem behavior, it's a problem for you AND your child.
Sometimes grown-ups persist in trying to correct a child's problem behavior the same way...again and again and again...
We're behaving as poorly as our child. That's right! In the same way our child is doing the same thing again and again, so are we! You know Einstein's definition of insanity, don't you?...
Doing the same
What qualifies me to write the Child Behavior Books?
I'm the guy who listens to kids. I''ve also spent my entire adult life crafting stories for a living.
I wrote for Hollywood for a dozen years, creating movies and tv pilots. I wrote mysteries and romances for popular magazines. I also perform comedy based on stories taken from my life.
(Google Steve Barancik.)
These storytelling skills come in handy when I craft the Child Behavior Books.
I read to children in schools and the local Head Start program. I pay attention to what kinds of stories kids like.
One thing they always like: humor. That's why all my books are funny and light-hearted. Humor - as long as it's not at your child's expense - puts your child even less on the defensive when it comes to dealing with behavior problems.
I'm also the guy who created this huge site on the subject
