It's easy to recognize a strong-willed child.

But now, the miracle parents long for can happen. Offering new hope, achievable goals, and a breath of fresh air to families and teachers, Cynthia Tobias explains how the mind of a strong-willed child works - and how to use that information to the child's best advantage.

"I love the practical strategies and valuable insights from the hearts and lives of strong-willed kids.… You’ll defi nitely want to make this book part of your parenting library."
—Dr. Kevin Leman, New York Times best-selling author of Have a New Kid by Friday

Turn Conflict into Cooperation
 
Many parents suspect their strong-willed child is deliberately trying to drive them crazy. Difficult to discipline and seemingly impossible to motivate, these children present unique, exhausting, and often-frustrating challenges to the those who love them.
 
But strong will is not a negative trait. These same children have firm convictions, high spirits, a sense of adventure—all the makings of a great adult. In this book you’ll discover how to channel that passion and determination in positive ways as you build a healthy relationship. Through insights gained from strong-willed people of all ages, you’ll…
·         better understand how their minds really work.
·         discover positive ways to motivate your strong-willed child.
·         learn how to share control without compromising parental authority.
·         apply key tactics to survive a meltdown.
·         get practical tips for parents who disagree, blended families, and single parents.
 
Packed with  immediately useful strategies to drastically reduce the level of tension in the home (or in the classroom), You Can’t Make Me shows how you can start today to build a stronger, more positive relationship with your strong-willed child.
 
Includes…
·         Top Ten Tips for Bringing Out the Best in a Strong-Willed Child of Any Age
·         A Strong-Willed Child Emergency Kit

    This review was written for You Can't Make Me (But I Can Be Persuaded).
    No other books have helped me with my strong-willed child as well as this one has. Other books are so vague; I really needed "how to's", and this definitely has them. I now understand that my child isn't necessarily doing things just to "be disobedient", which was what we had originally thought. Our approach was ruining our relationship with our child. This book has saved our parenting skills and has helped provide our child with a more functional childhood.

    The book arrived on a day when my sister-in-law stopped in and told me of the difficulties her daughter was going through with their 3 year old. I told her that I hadn't read the book yet but had listened to some of Cynthia Tobias' audio talks and was intrigued by what she had to say, and sent the book home with her to give to her daughter. When I saw my niece a week later, she thanked me for the book and said that it was an answer to her prayers! When she got the book, she immediately started reading it and put some of the first ideas into motion and things were already improving with her child's behavior! She was excited to read the rest of the book. I have now also ordered her the other audio files of Cynthia Tobias and ordered another set for one of my other sisters!

    I really like this book. It is most helpful to understanding and then being able to help the child that does need to be persuaded.
