How to Make Good Choices and Stay Out of Trouble
by Tom McIntyre, Ph.D.
(Dr. Mac)

*Kids can make use of the book independently (given a 4th grade reading level), or teachers/counselors can use the text to guide small groups of students who need to work on their behavior at home and school.

  Parents will also find it helpful in changing their child's behavior for the better.

Kids who are labeled "BD" (or ED, EBD, or SED...OR maybe they're not labeled as having a disability, but they do have a need to work on their behavior) struggle every day—with their peers, teachers, parents, and themselves. Its no fun to be labeled, and nobody wants to have behavior problems. Often, however, kids who get in trouble a lot don’t know how else to act in those situations. Maybe they can state the behavior they should be showing, but they don't have any history of practicing these desired ways of behaving.  This book can help them make better choices that will improve their behavior and their lives.

THE BEHAVIOR SURVIVAL GUIDE FOR KIDS guides youngsters to better understand themselves and the problems their behavior creates.  In kid language, “Dr. Mac” describes what BD is (and isn’t), the types and causes of BD, and special school programs for kids with BD.  He provides many strategies that kids can use to handle strong feelings and make positive choices.  Stories and quotes from real kids labeled as being behavior disordered let readers know they’re not alone; "It's your turn" segments present activities for practicing these new ways to behave.  Kids learn to believe in themselves, take responsibility for their actions, make smarter choices, and enjoy the results of their better behavior.  The book includes a glossary and additional resources for kids, parents, and teachers.
