Elizabeth Murphy, Ed.D., is a licensed psychologist and creator of the Murphy-Meisgeier Type Indicator for Children, a tool used to identify Jungian type preferences in children. Essentially, the author goes through each of the attitudes and functions and discusses how type preferences come into play in home & school environments. She also shares examples of conflict or challenges that may arise when a parent or teacher fails to take into account the child's preference.
This provides a good analysis overall of type in children and more importantly, provides plenty of easy-to-follow examples. For example, it explains why a child with a thinking preference asks "Why?" -- and why "because I said so; that's why" is an ineffective answer. She explains why thinking children may say things that feeling parents would interpret as rude or insensitive, and how they can fail to understand why they are being scolded. She shares examples of how to introduce and introverted child and an extraverted child to a new school.
Although the author provides home & school applications, the examples are definitely skewed toward the school setting, and even many of the home applications involve school-related topics. I sense that this book is directed more toward teachers than toward parents, but there is certainly good guidance for both.
Another book on this topic that may be easier for parents is Nurture by Nature: How to Raise Happy, Healthy, Responsible Children Through the Insights of Personality Type
