“Tricky behavior” can often be challenging and confronting for parents, these children are the ones that are often incredibly gifted academically or creatively and frequently grow up to be the movers and shakers of the world. Passive resistance, competitive, manipulative, aggressive, moody or argumentative traits can often disguise anxieties and stresses that children cannot articulate.

How kids are like belly buttons!!

About Andrew Fuller

Australian clinical psychologist & family therapist, ANDREW FULLER. His new book TRICKY BEHAVIOURS: Managing Challenging and Confronting Children While Staying Sane! goes on sale in North America on May 1 and I’d love to book him for an interview with you on Parenting Our Future to talk about how your listeners identify their children’s challenging behaviors in a positive way – to make them feel confident and cared for.

Andrew understands that while tricky behavior can often be challenging and confronting for parents, these children are the ones that are often incredibly gifted academically or creatively and frequently grow up to be the movers and shakers of the world. Passive resistance, competitive, manipulative, aggressive, moody or argumentative traits can often disguise anxieties and stresses that children cannot articulate. The secret to transforming tricky behavior is to discover the root causes of undesirable behavior and show children how to use their abilities for good, rather than turn the home or school room into chaos. In his new book, Andrew thoroughly presents and examines all the different types of tricky behavior displayed by children of all ages; and it introduces his trusty RESOLVE acronym to help parents focus on their child’s needs:

  • R – respond with respect
  • E – engage and build belonging
  • S – seek understanding
  • O – observe feelings
  • L – lower the tempo
  • V – value add
  • E - empower

Drawing upon his years of practical experience and the combined wisdom of thousands of worn-out parents, Andrew helps readers empower their children to play to their strengths and learn a range of ways to interact with the world. Showing parents and educators how to apply his techniques to redirect angry, upset, and challenging behaviors can lead children (and their guardians!) to a calmer, more patient state.
