Before diving into the details, let's meet Dr. Ben Furman.

Introducing Dr. Ben Furman

Dr. Ben Furman is a highly respected expert in the fields of child psychology and behavior development. He's been working in this field for a very long time and is known for helping families and children. Ben Furman is someone many people turn to for help. He's written multiple books and even hosted radio and TV shows, making him a big influence in his field.

Dr. Furman's innovative ideas came about because he got tired of the old ways of dealing with kids' problems. Instead of always trying to understand why children misbehave, he had a different idea. He thought, "What if we teach kids new skills to solve their problems?"

This idea clicked when he helped a boy who had trouble controlling his anger. Instead of diving into the reasons behind the anger, Dr. Furman taught the boy a skill to manage his feelings. And it worked! The boy felt more confident, and things got better. That's how he came up with the Kids'Skills method—a new way to help kids by teaching them useful skills to overcome their challenges.
