The spirited child--often called "difficult" or "strong willed"--possesses traits we value in adults yet find challenging in children. Research shows that spirited children are wired to be "more"; by temperament, they are more intense, sensitive, perceptive, persistent, and more uncomfortable with change than the average child. In this newly revised third edition of the award-winning classic, Dr. Mary Sheedy Kurcinka provides vivid examples of real-life challenges and a refreshingly positive viewpoint. Within these pages you will find:

New strategies for managing intensity levels--not just the spirited child's, but yours too A simple, four-step program for peaceful bedtimes, mealtimes, holidays, and many other commonly challenging situations A focus on your child's strengths Steps for teaching your child how to be a problem solver and how to work with others Updated guidance on establishing clear limits And more!

Charts and quick tips make this newly updated edition an indispensable guide for fostering a supportive, encouraging, and loving environment for children.

This is the most fantastic book I have ever read. If you have a child that is MORE (more sensitive, more intense, more... anything) than read this book. It has changed our family completely. My oldest is Spirited and I had no idea how to help him and us with his issues. This gave us the tools. Even if you don't have a Spirited child it helps. Certainly eye opening....and life changing. My son is happy....finally.
