          Violent Kids

          June 30, 2011

          Imagine living in constant fear that you will be attacked ” or even killed ” by your own child. Dr. Phil, along with Dr. Alan Kazdin, professor of psychology and child psychiatry at Yale University and author of The Kazdin Method for Parenting the Defiant Child, has advice for managing aggressive behavior.



          Terrorizing Tween
          Ron and Christine say their 9-year-old son, Zachary, punches, kicks, screams, hits the walls and tries to tackle them. They say he even takes his anger out on the family pets. Dr. Alan Kazdin weighs in.

           

          Learn what to do when your child’s tantrum becomes violent.  

           


          Afraid of His Rages
          Scott and Carolin say they don’t know how to control their 12-year-old son, Nathanael. They say he chokes them, breaks windows in their home and stabs knives into the kitchen counter, and now they’re afraid that he could actually kill them. What’s at the root of Nathanael’s rage?

           

          See what Dr. Kazdin uncovers when he sits down with the young man.
