Your Spirited Child: A Guide for Parents Whose Child Is More Intense, Sensitive,
Perceptive, Persistent, and Energetic - Recently, temperament traits
have come to the forefront of child development theory. In Raising Your
Spirited Child, Mary Sheedy Kurcinka's first contribution is to redefine
the "difficult child" as the "spirited" child, a child that is, as she
says, MORE. Many people are leery about books that are too quick to "type"
kids, but Kurcinka, a parent of a spirited child herself and a parent educator
for 20 years, doesn't fall into that trap. Instead, she provides tools
to understanding your own temperament as well as your child's. When you
understand your temperamental matches--and your mismatches--you can better
understand, work, live, socialize, and enjoy spirit in your child. By reframing
challenging temperamental qualities in a positive way, and by giving readers
specific tools to work with these qualities, Kurcinka has provided a book
that will help all parents, especially the parents of spirited children,
understand and better parent their children.
