Abstract

Reviews the book, The Unhappy Child: What Every Parent Needs to Know by Kenneth N. Condrell (see record 2006-10275-000), stating that the book is geared toward parents and reviews what parents and peers do to cause children to become unhappy and how they can repair it. This book is a very quick read, and does a good job translating cognitive-behavioral and behavioral therapy into simple direct actions. The book's primary strength is its clear organization; each chapter is organized around four sections. These sections include The Problem, a definition as the author sees it with reliable statistical information; The Children Speak, which is primarily a series of anecdotes; Solutions, the heart of the book; and Resources, a list of further readings. Although in many ways this approach enhances the ease and focus of the text, in some ways it reduces the author's ability to expound on the topic.
