Now in a new updated version, Kurcinka offers parents the most up-to-date research, effective strategies and real life stories for: managing intensity - not just the kids, but parents too; getting the sleep every family needs and deserves; choosing their battles; helping children to hear their instructions; assisting children in getting along with siblings and peers; and, being successful in school and at home. Spirited children possess traits we value in adults, yet find challenging in children. Studies now show that these children are 'wired' to be more reactive to the world around them. The solution, rather than medication or punishment, is understanding temperament and working with it. Kurcinka in a supportive, warm style is able to reveal to parents how to do it, often leading them to ask, 'How did she get into my home'? Winner of the Parents' Choice Award, voted one of the top twenty books for parents, and a real life saver for parents, this updated version is eagerly awaited by parents and professionals.

Recommended for any parent whose child is "more"
This book has done more than anything else to help me understand my spirited child. Coming from two introverted, laid-back parents, her personality was a complete surprise and we really didn't know how to handle it. I learned why my spirited child recharges and behaves the way she does, and from that we were able to develop ways to nurture her own personality while guiding her to acceptable behavior. While every day is still a challenge, I'm able to see the forest for the trees when her intensity and persistence will do her well in life. This book made me go from feeling like I'm the only parent in the world who is feeling so challenged to one who knows how to work with it. I strongly recommend it to any parent whose child is "more."
