Newly revised, featuring the most up-to-date research, effective strategies, and real-life stories

The spirited child--often called "difficult" or "strong-willed"--possesses traits we value in adults yet find challenging in children. Research shows that spirited kids are wired to be "more"--by temperament, they are more intense, sensitive, perceptive, persistent, and uncomfortable with change than the average child. In this revised edition of the award-winning classic, voted one of the top twenty books for parents, Kurcinka provides vivid examples and a refreshingly positive viewpoint. Raising Your Spirited Child will help you:

understand your child's­--and your own--temperamental traits discover the power of positive--rather than negative--labels cope with the tantrums and power struggles when they do occur plan for success with a simple four-step program develop strategies for handling mealtimes, sibling rivalry, bedtimes, holidays, and school, among other situations

This is the most fantastic book I have ever read. If you have a child that is MORE (more sensitive, more intense, more... anything) than read this book. It has changed our family completely. My oldest is Spirited and I had no idea how to help him and us with his issues. This gave us the tools. Even if you don't have a Spirited child it helps. Certainly eye opening....and life changing. My son is happy....finally.
