Small Criminals Among Us
How to Recognize and Change Children's Antisocial Behavior — Before They Explode
by Gad Czudner, Ph.D.
With tales of children killing children filling newspaper headlines, families, teachers and observers of "difficult 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, who has been treating such cases for the last twenty-five years, tells us when such symptoms as lying, power and control urges, lack of responsibility, distortions of love, low frustration tolerance, resentment of authority, lack of empathy and the need for excitement become actual danger signals alerting us to a budding criminal. Moreover, describing why traditional methods to eliminate such behavior patterns don't work, Dr. Czudner gives us firm guidelines on how to change the criminal child into a socially responsible one.
