Product description

From Amazon

Recently, temperament traits have come to the forefront of child development theory. In Raising Your Spirited Child, Mary Sheedy Kurcinka's first contribution is to redefine the "difficult child" as the "spirited" child, a child that is, as she says, MORE. Many people are leery about books that are too quick to "type" kids, but Kurcinka, a parent of a spirited child herself and a parent educator for 20 years, doesn't fall into that trap. Instead, she provides tools to understanding your own temperament as well as your child's. When you understand your temperamental matches--and your mismatches--you can better understand, work, live, socialize, and enjoy spirit in your child. By reframing challenging temperamental qualities in a positive way, and by giving readers specific tools to work with these qualities, Kurcinka has provided a book that will help all parents, especially the parents of spirited children, understand and better parent their children.

Review

"A well-written, comprehensive, and above all loving and positive approach to understanding that oh-so challenging child." -- -- Evonne Weinhaus and Karen Friedman, authors of Stop Struggling with Your Child and Stop Struggling with Your Teen

"The book will prove to be a real lifesaver." -- -- Louise Bates Ames, author and association director, Gessell Institute of Human

"This book is a major work on temperament and parenting that should be in every family library." -- -- Nancy Melvin, associate dean for graduate programs and research, Arizona State University College of Nursing
