Temperament isn't good or bad; it's just the way each of us is. Some of us are active, intense and distractible; others are adaptable and persistent. You can't change temperament, but you can manage it. And that's what Understanding Temperament does: it explains why family members behave as they do and how parents can change family conflict into family cooperation. This book is full of real-life examples that will help parents:
-- Break the cycle of negative behavior between parent and child;
-- Nurture a close relationship with children; and
-- Prevent problems by creating a better "fit" between a child and his or her environment.
