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
