.com Review

Recently, temperament traits have come to the forefront of child development theory. In Raising Your
Spirited Child, Mary Sheedy Kurcinka's first contribution is to redefine the "difficult child" as the "spirited" child,
a child that is, as she says, MORE. Many people are leery about books that are too quick to "type" kids, but Kurcinka, a
parent of a spirited child herself and a parent educator for 20 years, doesn't fall into that trap. Instead, she
provides tools to understanding your own temperament as well as your child's. When you understand your temperamental
matches--and your mismatches--you can better understand, work, live, socialize, and enjoy spirit in your child. By
reframing challenging temperamental qualities in a positive way, and by giving readers specific tools to work with these
qualities, Kurcinka has provided a book that will help all parents, especially the parents of spirited children,
understand and better parent their children.
