Leading Author/Therapist Provides New Resource So Families of 'Bad' Children Can Survive - and Thrive

ORMOND BEACH, Fla., Nov. 18 /PRNewswire/ -- The holidays should bring peace, harmony, and treasured memories, but too often the stress of the season can foster difficult, even disorderly conduct among troubled children. Tantrums, defiant reactions, even disruptive, aggressive outbursts can destroy a family gathering and leave parents asking, "What did I do wrong?"

To help parents facing these challenges, Dr. Norman E. Hoffman, author of Bad Children Can Happen to Good Parents


licensed mental health counselor and marriage and family therapist today announced the launch of (, an online resource to enable parents to handle the difficulties - be they occasional or constant - with their growing children. Providing direct answers, helpful articles, free audio seminars, and the new exclusive blog, DrNormCares (, the website puts and end to blame-the-parent" myths and provides concrete steps for parents ready to take back control of their homes and bring peace into the lives of their children.

"Too often parents are blamed for the faults of their children," said Hoffman. "These loving parents don't know where to turn. The message is 'There is hope; there is help, and an improvement program that's not another band-aid -- it's a real solution.'"

Whether children suffer from recognized behavioral deficits like ADD, ADHD, antisocial conduct disorder or more elusive obstacles including compulsive lying, stubbornness, and selfishness, Dr. Hoffman offers a step-by-step program from which any family can benefit.

"With all the finger-pointing, parents can be reluctant to reach out for help," Dr. Hoffman explains. "This website speaks to parents in the comfort of their own homes and guides them through the steps they need to take to look for the signs of trouble, get the professional assessment that's needed and start on a path of healing."

Dr. Hoffman's website, blog, and ground-breaking book - available through the website - are tools that can add to the peace and goodwill of the season for all families. In the coming days, Dr. Hoffman will offer answers to questions from visitors to his site blog and Twitter: Why are the holidays so difficult for our family? What can we do to relieve stress and make the season more enjoyable? and How does your book provide some answers?
