How to Deal with Difficult Children. Alan Train takes a challenging look at the problem of bullying in schools and comes up with fresh answers and solutions. Many parents are reluctant to admit that their child is a bully, or is being bullied, and when they do admit it have no idea of how to approach the problem. The author explains the underlying needs of both the bully and the bullied, and how they may be met in a less destructive way. He centres the problem in the child's family dynamic, and proposes solutions that can tackle the problem.
