10 of 10 people found the following review helpful By A. Harrop on Oct. 4 2007
Format: Paperback
For the past 3 years, I've read countless books and listened to healthcare professionals that told me to let my daughter 'cry it out', even to leave her lying in her own vomit, to push independance. Well, that probably is fine for a lot of children, but for 'spirited children', it's a different story. Until I read this book, I always felt like I was spoiling my child and was just being a sucker for giving in all the time. If you have a child that is spirited (intense, sensitive), this is a book you must read. If your child also has difficulty sleeping, I also recommend Kurcinka's book "Sleepless in America".

Format: Paperback
I think this book is really balanced. It talks about some of the emotional challenge that parents of difficult-to-parent children face. It talks about adjusting your parenting style to accommodate the child's needs while still putting limits. It talks about helping teach your child to fit into the world (for example, through asking for what they need rather than becoming upset or learning how to approach groups of other children quietly rather than just barging in).

This is a book that helps me to look more closely at what is actually happening when my son and I get stuck butting heads. The section on introverts and extraverts helps me understand not just my son but my husband as well!

No other book out there that gives as much insight into a spirited child. Really helped us to understand what triggers certain behaviour and how to make sure our daughter is as comfortable and happy as possible :)

Provides insightful information for all those parents who feel like there are in a desperate situation. It helped me understand my son and realise he isn't as bad a I thought.

this book may have saved my sanity! there are lots of books that tell you how to raise kids but none of them seem to address the issues I was facing... I picked up the book to find tips on how to get my kid to be 'normal' but the book helped me see what an amazing kid I've got BECAUSE she is who she is! for any spirited parent of a spirited child this is a must have -- YOU ARE NOT ALONE!!!
