I have included the story of Pushy Patricia to illustrate that a parent does not have to be the epitome of bad parenting to raise a child who becomes a troubled adult. Patricia’s mother was too controlling of Patricia’s home life and too unrewarding of her positive behavior, so while Patricia was compliant at home, she sought every opportunity to resist all other forms of authority. Patricia became an adult who loved to be in control and pushed against authority of any sort. Patricia has a damaged ego and lacks adequate self-esteem.

There is something powerful associated with the cooperative involvement of both the parents and the child in the therapeutic process. The methods suggested should fit reasonably well with any therapists’ theoretical training and application of behavioral techniques.

The discipline techniques in this book help parents to establish reasonable authority with their children, and a natural outcome is a stress-free, loving relationship between parent and child.
