The spirited child, often called difficult, can easily overwhelm parents, leaving them feeling frustrated and inadequate. Spirited kids are, in fact, simply 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. She will help you understand your child's, and your own, temperamental traits, discover the power of positive rather than negative labels, cope with tantrums and blowups when they do occur, and develop strategies for handling many situations.

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

    " if i didn't have such a spirited child, i would probably be able to finish this book. i ended up skipping around a bit, but there is some really useful information. realizing the different personalities and how that effects processing has helped not only in my parenting skills, but also my partnership skills with my husband. "

    " Has a lot of workable strategies for children "who are more". I like the positive, encouraging labels she gives children who are often taught by adults to snuff out their spirit. It does not advocate letting your child rule; it does teach a parent to respect their child as an individual and work within the bounds of their coping capabilities. My copy is already tattered and dog-earred. Worth buying. "

    " LOVED this book. I found more practical and useful advice in this book than in any other parenting book that I've read. Now if only I could get myself into the habit of calling my toddler "spirited" instead of "crazy".... "
