Our June Guest Speaker, Mary Sheedy Kurcinka, has graciously donated one of her books- Raising Your Spirited Child- for one lucky blog visitor.
Amazon book description… 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. 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
“This book comes from my own personal experience as a parent educator and a mom. As a parent educator, I met hundreds of children. When I became a mom, I quickly realized that my son was normal but definitely more: more sensitive, intense, persistent, and slow to transition. Because of him, I began my research into behavior, temperament and individual differences. My studies gave birth to the term “Spirited Child.” I learned that there are many children who are more and that their parents needed information and support.” –Mary
