Overview
A revised edition of a classic guide to raising challenging children draws on current research to provide parenting strategies for such areas as sleep resistance, getting along with peers, and managing conflict. By the author of Sleepless in America. Original.

Publishers Description

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

Reviews - What do customers think about Raising Your Spirited Child Rev Ed: A Guide for Parents Whose Child Is More Intense, Sensitive, Perceptive, Persistent, and Energetic?

A good read...however-  Mar 9, 2007
Yes, my husband both agree we like this book. However, all we really came away with is the fact that, yes, we definitely have a spirited child, but there were really no techniques or strategies that we could find to deal with daily tantrums/meltdowns. Basically, the book validated what we already knew.

The few 'techniques' the book did offer had NO effect whatsoever on our child.

A good read though....
 
For the first time I understand my child!  Mar 1, 2007
I was only on the first page before the tears started. I have not made it all the way through this book yet, but I already feel relieved to be looking in at what a day in my daughter's life is like. There are times when I laugh because I feel that Ms. Kurcinka must have been spying on our day to day lives. It took 8 years for someone to have the guts to tell me that no, my child wasn't ADHD, she wasn't crazy, she was probably strong-willed like hers, which led me to this book. I much prefer the term spirited that this book uses (I have discovered I too am spirited--big surprise) and recommend it to anyone who is searching for a little peace.
