About the author

Tedi Tuttle Wixom born in the heart of the Rocky Mountains, USA grew up far from hospitals and medical technology in pristine Idaho surrounded by high mountain lakes. Raised by an artist mother who taught school, her entire family became immersed in art, music, and books and naturally learned to love the beauties of the outdoors. Her mother read Arabian Knight Tales, Bible Stories, and Fairy tales to her five daughters. In her youth, Tedi also enjoyed reading encyclopedias, dictionaries, and maps while being raised by self-sufficient pioneer stalk that helped tame the Wild Western Frontier. 

She began her formal education at Ricks College (BYU-Idaho) in commercial art and design although she loved basketball, softball, volleyball, and track and could have easily enrolled as a PE major. After obtaining her Associate Degree she served a Mission to teach the gospel in Tallahassee Florida, USA 18 months before meeting and marrying an Idaho dairyman. A transformation became inevitable when they fell on hard times and liquidated their farm assets. Thus, they returned to BYU at Provo, USA where her husband completed his Master’s Degree and she began her journey to complete a Bachelor’s Degree in English. 

Nine children later she finished her her B.A. Degree in English at Brigham Young University (BYU). In the midst of raising children, cats, dogs, and college graduates She spends her time writing, reading, composing music, and gardening.  Her latest historical novel, Joseph, is based on King Tut the Musical that her son, Jason, and she wrote nearly a decade ago. Jason, whom nobody would have believed to have survived as a heart transplant baby, came home from pre-school one day with an idea for the children's book: Cock-a-doodle-doo, I Love You sporting vibrant art by Derek Lancaster.

Never hospitalized until her first child was born, she has become all too familiar with hospitals. She lives with her husband of 32 years, children, a dog named Cloud and a cat named Ghost.     She began her formal education at Ricks College (BYU-Idaho) in commercial art and design although she loved basketball, softball, volleyball, and track and could have easily enrolled as a PE major.

A groundbreaking approach to understanding and parenting children who frequently exhibit severe fits of temper and other intractable behaviors, from a distinguished clinician and pioneer in this field.

What’s an explosive child? A child who responds to routine problems with extreme frustration—crying, screaming, swearing, kicking, hitting, biting, spitting, destroying property, and worse. A child whose frequent, severe outbursts leave his or her parents feeling frustrated, scared, worried, and desperate for help. Most of these parents have tried everything-reasoning, explaining, punishing, sticker charts, therapy, medication—but to no avail. They can’t figure out why their child acts the way he or she does; they wonder why the strategies that work for other kids don’t work for theirs; and they don’t know what to do instead.

Dr. Ross Greene, a distinguished clinician and pioneer in the treatment of kids with social, emotional, and behavioral challenges, has worked with thousands of explosive children, and he has good news: these kids aren’t attention-seeking, manipulative, or unmotivated, and their parents aren’t passive, permissive pushovers. Rather, explosive kids are lacking some crucial skills in the domains of flexibility/adaptability, frustration tolerance, and problem solving, and they require a different approach to parenting.

Throughout this compassionate, insightful, and practical book, Dr. Greene provides a new conceptual framework for understanding their difficulties, based on research in the neurosciences. He explains why traditional parenting and treatment often don’t work with these children, and he describes what to do instead. Instead of relying on rewarding and punishing, Dr. Greene’s Collaborative Problem Solving model promotes working with explosive children to solve the problems that precipitate explosive episodes, and teaching these kids the skills they lack.
