Notes types of behavior exhibited by children who turn to criminal activities and advises parents on how to detect problem behavior.

"Before its Too Late" addresses the difficult subject of "problem children" with compassion, reassurance, and welcome clarity. Clinical psychologist Stanton Samenow gives concerned parents and professionals instructive insight into the personality of such children with practical suggestions for taking corrective remedial steps -- now, before the antisocial patterns become entrenched. He also offers advice to help parents of teenaged children cope effectively.

Seven common manifestations of antisocial behavior: Dr. Samenow contends that the popular tendency to blame these on environment is mistaken. The antisocial child knows very well the difference between right and wrong; however, he chooses to believe the rules don't apply to him. Dr. Samenow describes the seven warning signs that should put parents on the alert that they need to get help for their kid -- now.

Six errors in parental thinking: While Dr. Samenow concludes that parents don't directly cause their child's antisocial behavior, he does indicate how they can unwittingly serve to encourage rather than inhibit it. Parents can learn to avoid making these errors.

"Before its Too Late" translates the latest research findings into instruction and encouragement for all.
