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

Comments about Raising Your Spirited Child:

As I read I found myself nodding. Yes, they are describing my child. So far some of the solutions they propose have only had limited success but I have only read a few chapters at this point. I like the idea that you embrace their intensity rather than downplay it.

      This is a great read for parents with children that are spirited as the author says as it helps you define what is spirited, but also how to deal with the spirited -ness in helpful ways!

        Comments about Raising Your Spirited Child:

        This book helped me to better understand and appreciate my spirited daughter. It gave me a different perspective to her behaviour and temperament as well as practical ways to approach and discipline her that didn't end with us locking horns. Our household is much more relaxed and happy now.

          The author really understands the needs of children who are "spirited" and those of the parents who care for them. Just what our family desperately needed to help us with our spirited child. Lots of good tips and ideas. So glad we found this book!
