Beyond Time-Out - Advice on How to Handle Misbehaving Children
A retired clinical child psychologist, Dr. Beth Grosshans has been featured in The Washington Post, Chicago Tribune, and The Washington Times over the course of her 25-year career. In 2010, Dr. Beth Grosshans leveraged her expertise in child behavior and development to publish the book Beyond Time-Out: From Chaos to Calm.
A 336-page book, Beyond Time-Out: From Chaos to Calm addresses undisciplined children and their out of control behaviors. The book encourages parents to evaluate their own actions to determine an appropriate solution for managing children and creating a balanced household, where a child does not have primary control. Specifically, readers are given advice on how to establish authority and power, which alleviates defiant battles with food, sleeping, and potty training. Likewise, the book offers guidance on calming fears and taming tantrums.
According to reader Ann Murphy, a parenting contributor to ABC’s Good Morning America, the publication delivers advice in an empathetic manner. The book sheds light on the difficulties of setting limits, while delivering a clear message about the rewards reaped when creating boundaries.
