This book will teach you about your own stress reactions, and how you can respond more effectively to your children from your own inner strength with compassionate understanding rather than reacting our of your fear.

If you are a parent dealing with extreme behaviors, whatever their root cause (trauma, behavioral disorder, etc), I highly recommend this book.

I recommend all parents, teachers and people who work with kids read this book as it provides valuable insight into how the brain works and how we can work with the kids whatever state their brains are in. The only reason I gave it four instead of five stars is that it didn't have enough examples or provide more examples. Dr. Post gives an example of what to do when a child fights homework... well, it didn't apply to my kid and I was stuck. So it would help to have more examples.

I still like the BCLC books better than either of the books I have read that were solo written by Post. But this book drives home some things a bit more for me. Many of the examples in this book are identical to examples in the other book of his I have read (From Fear to Love), so that was kind of disappointing.

I usually never write book reviews but this book was so informative and helpful that I couldn't put it down! This book had pretty much all the answers to the questions I had concerning behavior problems with children who have had a traumatic past. Thank you for a truly life-changing book!
