Raising your Spirited Child
A Guide for Parents Whose Child Is More Intense, Sensitive, Perceptive, Persistent, and EnergeticeBook - 2015
The spirited child-often called "difficult" or "strong willed"-possesses traits we value in adults yet find challenging in children. Research shows that spirited children are wired to be "more"; by temperament, they are more intense, sensitive, perceptive, persistent, and more uncomfortable with change than the average child. In this newly revised third edition of the award-winning classic, Dr. Mary Sheedy Kurcinka provides vivid examples of real-life challenges and a refreshingly positive viewpoint. Within these pages you will find: -New strategies for managing intensity levels-not just the spirited child's, but yours too -A simple, four-step program for peaceful bedtimes, mealtimes, holidays, and many other commonly challenging situations -A focus on your child's strengths -Steps for teaching your child how to be a problem solver and how to work with others -Updated guidance on establishing clear limits -And more! Charts and quick tips make this newly updated edition an indispensable guide for fostering a supportive, encouraging, and loving environment for children.
