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
