Information
A Guide for Parents Whose Child is More Intense, Sensitive, Perceptive, Persistent, Energetic

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, uncomfortable with change than the average child. Here, Mary Sheedy Kurcinka offers a new and refreshingly positive approach to parenting spirited children, offering parents the kinds of emotional support and proven strategies they crave. Filled with lively examples, '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
- plan for success with a simple four-step program
- cope with tantrums
- develop strategies for handling mealtimes, bedtimes, holidays, school and many other situations

Filled with personal insight and authoritative advice, this book can help make parenting the joy it should be, rather than the trial it can be.
