Raising Your Spirited Child

Rating
New or Used: $19.95
The spirited child--often called "difficult" or "strong-willed"--can easily overwhelm parents, leaving them feeling frustrated and inadequate. Spirited kids are, in fact, simply "more"--by temperament, they are more intense, sensitive, perceptive, persistent, and uncomfortable with change than the average child. Through vivid examples and a refreshingly positive viewpoint, Mary Sheedy Kurcinka offers parents emotional support and proven strategies for handling their spirited child. "Raising Your Spirited Child" will help you:

Understand your child's -- and your own -- temperamental traitsPlan for success with a simple four-step programDiscover the power of positive -- rather than negative -- labelsCope with tantrums and blowups when they do occurDevelop strategies for handling mealtimes, bedtimes, holidays, school and many other situations

Filled with personal insight and authorative advice, "Raising Your Spirited Child" can help make parenting the joy it should be, rather than the trial it can be.

"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
