Publisher's Description

Newly revised, featuring the most up-to-date research, effective strategies, and real-life stories

The spirited child—often called "difficult" or "strong-willed"—possesses traits we value in adults yet find challenging in children. Research shows that spirited kids are wired to be "more"—by temperament, they are more intense, sensitive, perceptive, persistent, and uncomfortable with change than the average child. In this revised edition of the award-winning classic, voted one of the top twenty books for parents, Kurcinka provides vivid examples and a refreshingly positive viewpoint. 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
  • cope with the tantrums and power struggles when they do occur
  • plan for success with a simple four-step program
  • develop strategies for handling mealtimes, sibling rivalry, bedtimes, holidays, and school, among other situations

    This book blessed me over and over again. Being a spirited adult trying to raise spirited children is most days challenging, some days quite exhausting but everyday a blessing. I found comfort to know that other parents deal with the very same issues as we do in our family. I live by the motto "progress not perfection is our goal" now. I've shared this book with a couple of friends and they have thanked me dearly. Thank you for this much needed wisdom and encouragement.
