About How to Change Children

About Parenting Books

This book is about changing children's behavior. It isn't a parenting book, because in my opinion those books focus too much on the content of daily living rather than the process of living daily. I'll explain. Parenting books focus more on what to say when a child doesn't cooperate. Parenting books focus more on rules, like appropriate bedtimes. Parenting books focus on norms, like what is OK and not OK in any given circumstances. These are content issues; that is, they focus on what the issue is on the surface, at the moment.

Process analysis focuses on the dynamics underlying the content. The forces that govern human behavior surface in specific examples (content), but the underlying processes that create these experiences are dynamic, internal forces. They are usually out of awareness. Understand these and any content behaviors can be dealt with without the content biases. Biases can be cultural, religious, ethnic, etc. Process analysis bypasses these, giving caregivers more freedoms to understand and change behaviors because the causes of the behavior are addressed, not just the situation, context or other superficial aspects. Process awareness gives the added advantage of making interventions last longer, because they generalize to more situations.

Oh, by the way, if you still want to to express your cultural, ethnic or religious beliefs, you can. My system doesn't touch them.

Who should read this ebook?

Parents, of course, but any adult that cares for any child. Teachers can use these techniques in the classroom, where they work en masse, not just on one or two kids. Instructors in classes for kids (swimming, karate, etc.) will have the same successes. Day care supervisors and after-school boys and girls club programs staff get good results using this material. Do you work with the developmentally disabled population? Aspergers? Apply my techniques and watch what happens. These techniques are right on. Lastly, this book is a must read for anyone working with Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder (ADHD).

Why buy this book?

Parents and children collide, just about every day. If this is not your case, you don't need what I have to offer. But most parents, teachers, etc. struggle with their children and/or students at some point, often regularly. These are the folks that should look at my publication. Conflict, especially regular conflict, is painful. My material changes the dynamics of behavior, hence reduces the pain. Even if there aren't a lot of problems, my material will make the existing good behaviors look pretty dull after you understand my techniques.

One parent told me I should put a disclaimer at the beginning of the ebook, stating something like, "WARNING, Your child will be too well behaved. You might have to sit down." Well, that was overstating it, but it felt good to me.

The reward to you is less stress, more cooperation, less discipline, more complimenting and smoother communication. In short, I'm trying to create better living environments between kids and the adults in their lives. Parents and their children feel better after implementing my techniques. The rewards are multiple. Relationships improve. "Bad" experiences diminish. All this happens--fast. What I'm presenting is a concise set of descriptions of the processes underlying behavior. I write about what the terms are, how they work, why they are important and most importantly, how to use them and engage children. When engaged, children respond. Adults see change, often right away. Understanding the dynamic relationships between the concepts is what I teach and what allows the reader to change children's behavior, quickly. Here's some more of the feedback I've gotten:

In sum, all of the complaints I hear from parents, teachers and other adults about children usually default to one big idea: relationships. When things dont go smoothly, relationships suffer. When relationships are crummy, things dont go smoothly. Parenting books mostly cover the things over which parents, teachers and other adults collide with their charges. I bypass most of that (thats what standard parenting books are for); instead I target the dynamic underpinnings that create and control such collsions and then adjust the dynamics to change the experience for both parent and child. The result is that relationships and "things" change, quickly, for the better.

Again, this ebook has no fat. Think of it as a "Cliffs Notes" publication. It's "sort of" a quick read (about two or three hours for the first reading), because I have to explain stuff using terms you probably haven't heard before. "Behavioral types;" that is, teachers and adults with some psychology background will recognize about 60% of the terms. Nobody has published what I present as the glue that makes these concepts work. I think this is why my ebook does a better job. The theory I espouse is different from standard "behavior change" books. It works better. I've put together a hard hitting, direct "How To" manual. My research has not turned up another ebook that does what mine does.


"How to Change Children's Behavior (Quickly) has offered me more than I first took from the title. My son was 5 when I first read this book, and although I wouldn't have considered him to be out of control, there were some behaviors that started showing up that were troublesome. I was looking for something to help with my son and found in this e-book something that not only helped me with my son, but also applied to the other relationships in my life.

Dr. Griggs has a very readable and understandable style. His insight into behaviors and relationships is simple enough that it is hard to believe that it is effective. I speak from experience that it really is as easy as he describes in the book. He outlines some very basic changes to make that build a structured and supportive environment. It is in this environment that the patterns of behavior start to unwind and naturally progress towards the goals that he helps you lay out.

The book is to the point. The instructions are simple and easy to follow. It will help introduce basic structure and really made it easy for me to become a better parent. Amazingly, my boy is happier AND better behaved.

I would recommend this book to anyone with kids. I can see where the book would really help parents with trouble kids, but even parents with well behaved children will find the concepts and instruction helpful."

"My Son has been visiting with Dr. Steven Griggs (Steve) for about 2 years and Steves help and advice has helped provide tools that have helped immeasurably during a critical time in my Sons life, working through his parents divorce as well as other issues. His book How to Change Childrens Behavior (Quickly) is such a useful tool with actual strategies that work, not only for the Children, but for Parents too!

I have found the books underlying philosophy (and its straight forward language) to be a great way to help Parents communicate effectively with their Kids. All too often, we Parents focus on what needs to be fixed instead of praising what is already working so well with our Children, and this book clearly and concisely helps us focus on the larger picture of our Children and their accomplishments as well as how to motivate them to improve themselves in a positive way. I would sincerely add that the philosophies and strategies in his book could easily be applied in many other ways (parent-to-parent communication would be one of a few examples).

This book is an outstanding building block with which to do just that. It takes complex ideas and boils them down to simple, easy to use tools.

I am very grateful for the work that Dr. Griggs has put into this most valuable book."

"Dr. Griggs' E Book ... has truly been a God send in this household. We are a foster family with a blend of biological, adopted and foster children. ... there are five chldren running around at just about any given time! ... One of these children pretty much held us hostage with his behavior. Tantrum after tantrum. Wailing incessantly over the slightest thing. EVERYTHING was an issue. We had to leave stores, never went to friend's houses and cancelled plans--many times having all the kids in the car ready to go, only to have to take everyone down, angering this child even more.

Somehow we made our way to Dr. Griggs. He told me about his eBook and at first I was skeptical as to anything helping this little guy, but I decided I had to try it. It seemed that my list of behaviors that I wanted to change was endless. At first it didn't seem to work. My little guy found ways around anything and he fought to keep control of anything and everything.... Then one day, out of nowhere, I said 'No' and even though he wailed, there was no tantrum. I remember waiting for the storm to come, but all I got was a 'FINE." Maybe there is something to this eBook. It has been 6 months and I can't begin to say how much things have changed. This little boy works so hard to have positive behavior and the stars are flying onto the start chart. I highly recommed this book to anyone and everyone. I've even used it a couple of times with my husband!!! It really works!!!

About author Doctor Steven T. Griggs PhD

I"ve been a practicing psychologist in an outpatient setting for over twenty years. I run into eight conditions almost every day (addictions, anxiety, ADHD/learning disabilities, assertiveness, childrens behaviors, mood disorders, relationships and self-esteem). Relationships are one of the most important of these in its own right, but in every one of the other seven areas, it, like self-esteem and assertiveness plays a huge role. Usually, when people have a good relationship, the problems in each of these groups diminish. A graduate professor once told me there are two things that either make or break people. One is employment and the other is having a good relationship.
