3.0 out of 5 stars Well presented with some good tips, 13 July 2001
This review is from: Raising Your Spirited Child: A Guide for Parents Whose Child Is More Intense, Sensitive, Perceptive, Persistent and Energetic (Paperback)
This book is very infomative on the needs and subtle differences you need to be aware of when dealing with spirited children. It mostly focuses on the child and how to adapt to make situations easier. I believe it is important to use positive lables but this alone will not change entrenched automatic behavior. With our spirited child setting clear limits and enabling him to adapt and grow was what made the biggest difference. It was hard work but our child is now much happier and confident as a result. A good book on discipline and limit setting is needed as a companion to the spirited child. I highly recommend reading "Ain't Misbehavin" and then read "The Manipulative Child". These books show where the parent needs to make changes and how the child must learn to adapt. Walking on egg shells and allowing the child to operate in his/her "preferred style" can escalate and reinforce unwanted behaviors. I read "Raising your spirited child" after we had corrected our childs behavior and found it useful and helpful but not a solution on its own.
