    Author Bio

    MICHAEL POPKIN, Ph.D., is the founder and president of Active Parenting Publishers, helping millions of parents to develop cooperation, responsibility, and courage in their children. Dr. Popkin lives in Atlanta, Georgia, with his family. To find out more please visit his website at www.activeparenting.com.

    Library Journal

    Popkin, founder of Active Parenting Publishers Inc. and a former child and family therapist, believes that the key to taming a spirited child is to establish a healthy relationship. This idea, coupled with the seemingly effective methods of discipline, communication, and encouragement outlined here, aims to help a child live more effectively within the family and in the world. Popkin takes a compassionate and realistic perspective about what characterizes a child as "spirited" and how to tame (not break) the child in ways that build a loving relationship and set the foundation for her or him to thrive in society. He emphasizes that it's about changing the child's ways, not the child's being. There is extensive discussion of the author's "8 sided taming corral" approach. Each "plank," or idea/skill, is examined in detail in the preceding chapters. The book ends with an action plan followed by resources. Whereas Mary Sheedy Kurcinka in Raising Your Spirited Child emphasized understanding what makes a child act the way she or he does, Popkin concentrates on relationship building. Highly recommended for all public libraries.-Kari Ramstrom, Hennepin Country Lib., MN Copyright 2007 Library Journal.

    Publisher's Weekly

    Psychologist and parenting expert Popkin, a frequent Oprah guest, devotes his latest title to helping parents "tame" kids who are difficult or spirited. Popkin has a fondness for acronyms, such as CAPPS to describe the spirited child as Curious, Adventurous, Powerful, Persistent and Sensitive. Parents may very well recognize their child's traits in these pages and appreciate the author's understanding of the frustration spirited kids often inspire. Popkin offers parents strategies to calm and defuse their child's anger, and ways to build a nurturing relationship without fighting or giving in, such as using his FLAC process ("meant to reduce the amount of flack in your relationship with your child," using Feelings, Limits, Alternatives and Consequences). Many books offer pick-and-choose options, but Popkin encourages readers to read his complete work before trying his tactics, as his methods are interwoven in a manner than helps build and balance the parent/child relationship. Included are plenty of hands-on activity suggestions parents can employ to avoid power struggles and give spirited kids the time, space and behavior structures they need. Tackling the book in its modest entirety will be easy for most readers as Popkin is an entertaining writer with keen insights; his own son was a spirited youngster, and the author draws from personal experience as well as his professional expertise. Copyright 2007 Publishers Weekly.

    Editorial Reviews

    "Finally, a fresh approach to the whole 'difficult child' category. In this insightful and moving work, Michael Popkin shows parents the positive potential of these spirited children without making excuses for their behavior. His 'taming' methods are as humane as they are effective." -- Thom Hartmann, author of Attention Deficit Disorder: A Different Perception
    "I adore the real strategies and know parents will be so grateful for the positive spin on 'spirit.' This is one of the best parenting books for raising challenging children." -- Michele Borba, Ed.D., author of No More Misbehavin'
    "This text should be required reading for anyone responsible for children. As a pediatrician, I know that captivating the difficult-to-manage child's spirit and redirecting that energy into positive thoughts and actions can go a long way towards improving social outcomes." -- Dr. Melina McVicar, professor of Clinical Pediatrics, New York Medical College
