I didn't love this movie. The characters and the storyline were somewhat unbelievable. I wouldn't watch this movie again or recommend it to anyone else.

1.0 out of 5 stars Completely Oversimplified, April 1, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I really regret having spent money on this book. Most of what is included in it is either common sense or not very helpful. For example, in the section on the child who is, "Left Out," the first bullet under "What Should I Do?" reads, "Teach Your child how to deal with rejection. If your child whines, cries, or pleads to be included, chances are she'll turn the group off. So suggest she try to maintain her dignity in of her pain." This book didn't add anything to my existing social skillset and did not allow me to help my child at all. Do not purchase this book if your child does not pick up on social clues easily and/or acts impulsively. Real life social situations with children do not allow the kind of time and focus needed for the approaches included in this book. Your child will need to be able to be 100% mindful of his/her behavior during all social interactions in order to make these approaches work and honestly, if my child were capable of that, I probably wouldn't have felt the need to purchase the book in the first place.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic!, February 12, 2008
This is a wonderful, thoughtfully written book that has the potential to help many families, even those without children with behavioral problems. I have been using this method with my child for three weeks, and it is amazingly effective and easy to implement. I was relieved by Dr. Kazdin's message...you don't have to be harder on your kids to drastically improve their behavior.
