Revised third edition of the award-winning bestseller that has helped millions, now providing the most up-to-date research and even more effective, practical tips and strategies

Do you ever wonder why your child behaves the way he or she does? Are you struggling with tantrums and meltdowns? Do you find yourself getting frustrated and feeling like you're at the end of your rope?

You are not alone! Many parents are dealing with the same challenges.

In Raising Your Spirited Child, Third Edition, beloved parenting expert Mary Sheedy Kurcinka, Ed.D., offers ALL parents and caregivers a glimpse into what makes their spirited children behave the way they do. The key word that distinguishes spirited children from other children is "more" -- more intense, more persistent, more sensitive and more uncomfortable with change.

Through vivid examples and a refreshingly positive viewpoint, this invaluable guide offers emotional support and proven strategies for handling the toughest times. Dr. Mary has devised a plan for success with a simple four-step program that will help you:

· Understand your child's and your own temperamental traits

· Cope with tantrums and blowups when they do occur, and prevent them in the future

· Develop strategies for handling mealtimes, bedtimes, holidays, school, and many other situations.

· Implement discipline to win cooperation and establish clear boundaries

· Teach your child how to be a "problem solver" and work well with others

· ... and more!

Including charts and quick tips for today's time-challenged parents, this newly updated edition of Raising Your Spirited Child will help you foster a supportive, encouraging, and loving environment for your spirited child.

This is the most fantastic book I have ever read. If you have a child that is MORE (more sensitive, more intense, more... anything) than read this book. It has changed our family completely. My oldest is Spirited and I had no idea how to help him and us with his issues. This gave us the tools. Even if you don't have a Spirited child it helps. Certainly eye opening....and life changing. My son is happy....finally.
