Synopsis:

Now in a NEW UPDATED version, Kurcinka offers parents the most up–to–date research, effective strategies and real life stories for:

•Managing intensity – not just the kids, but parents too

•Getting the sleep every family needs and deserves,

•Choosing their battles

•Helping children to hear their instructions

•Assisting children in getting along with siblings and peers, and

•Being successful in school and at home.

Spirited children possess traits we value in adults, yet find challenging in children. Studies now show that these children are "wired" to be more reactive to the world around them. The solution, rather than medication or punishment, is understanding temperament and working with it. Kurcinka in a supportive, warm style is able to reveal to parents how to do it, often leading them to ask, "How did she get into my home?" Winner of the Parents' Choice Award, voted one of the top twenty books for parents, and a "real life saver" for parents, this updated version is eagerly awaited by parents and professionals.

Synopsis:

The essential companion to "Raising Your Spirited Child," this workbook brings readers right into Kurcinka's world-famous workshops. Through exercises, observations, and dialogue from actual groups, readers learn to identify the "triggers" that lead to tantrums and challenging behaviors.

Portland Mom, October 26, 2014 (view all comments by Portland Mom)
This book is a must-have for every parent. Start reading it when your child is about 15 months old so you're ready when "it hits." Since most parents won't do that, then start reading on the first day that you wonder how children live to see adulthood. For me it was when my oldest hit 18 months. This book was recommended by a friend and mother of two, and I read it in 2 days. It saved the relationship between my child and me. It will teach you how to deal with your child(ren), mate and others in your life. I have given this book to many people (but never my copy as I still use it). My baby is now 17 years old and this book made her my favorite person on earth.
