Bad Children Can Happen to Good Parents: A Survival Manual for Parents of Difficult Children by Norman E. Hoffman, Ph.D.

Renowned Therapist Challenges Modern Psychology and Explodes Myths of 'Why

Bad Kids Happen'

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla., Oct. 29 /PRNewswire/ -- Some children have a genetic predisposition to bad behavior and are more difficult to raise than others. The notion of 'there are no bad children, only bad parents' has been the cross parents have had to bear for decades, placing guilt for difficult children squarely on them. For years, classical and modern psychology suggested that when a child demonstrates unhealthy behavior, the root of the problem is due to actions of the parents. Even parents who believe they have done everything possible are either labeled by others -- or themselves -- as failures as parents.

However, Norman E. Hoffman, Ph.D. firmly disagrees and makes a strong case for why bad children often happen despite the best efforts of parents. His new book, Bad Children Can Happen to Good Parents: A Survival Manual for Parents of Difficult Children, makes the case that sometimes, despite good parenting, a child may go astray. Hoffman introduces readers to a concept some parents and mental health professionals may find surprising: "Uncaring Child Syndrome." Children who suffer from this syndrome lack a sense of guilt and remorse and often blame others for their problems and behavior.

Hoffman delves into not only how to identify this problem, but also the best course of action once a child is diagnosed with "Uncaring Child Syndrome." He wrote the book to aid both parents and professionals.

"I wanted to help parents recognize the early warning signs of uncaring antisocial behavior and eliminate the paralyzing parental 'guilt' and to also help therapists identify, screen and diagnose, and develop appropriate treatment plan for the child with uncaring antisocial behavior," says Hoffman.

The book has been favorably reviewed on Amazon.com by Thomas H. Harrell, Ph.D., professor of psychology at Florida Instit
