          Cranky Kids

          December 20, 2007

          Attention parents! Do you wish kids came with a manual? If you have a cranky, tantrum-throwing child, Dr. Phil, along with Dr. Frank Lawlis, author of Mending the Broken Bond, teach you how to stop the bad behavior and bring peace to your home.

           

           

          Tantrum-Throwing Tots

          Renee says her 3-year-old son, Grant, won’t behave unless his dad is around. Angie, says her son, Zachary, cries nonstop as he chases his sister around. His episodes last up to 30 minutes – or until he gets the toy he wants. And, Kristi says her 3-year-old, McKenna, throws up to eight tantrums every day.

            

          Learn better ways to communicate with your child.

           


           

          The Biggest Time-Out Mistake

          Shannon joins Dr. Phil via Web cam to get help with her 4-year-old son, Branson. He refuses to sit still during time-outs and hits, kicks, bites and calls his mother names.

          Emulating Daddy? 

          Tony and Suzette’s son, Malachai, has already been kicked out of three preschools, and he’s only 5 years old! He refuses to listen, throws toys and has even hit teachers. Why does Suzette say Malachai may be learning the behavior at home?

           

          What did a video camera in their home capture that disturbed these parents?

           


           

          Rebuilding the Bond
