Raising Your Spirited Child: A Guide for Parents Whose Child is More Intense, Sensitive, Perceptive, Persistent, and Energetic

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.
