One of your children is easy-going. The other oneâ€™s a challenge every single day. This book helps parents and teachers understand that temperament isnâ€™t good or badâ€"itâ€™s just the way we are. Recommended by Washington Post parenting columnist Marguerite Kelly, "Temperament Tools" explains young children.
New research shows that children are different from the day theyâ€™re bornâ€"and their temperaments stay different no matter how theyâ€™re parented. But your childrenâ€™s behavior does reflect their inborn traits; once you understand those traits, youâ€™ll be better prepared to handle behavior. Written specifically to help with young children, "Temperament Tools" explains:
â€¢ Whatâ€™s normal for your child;
â€¢ How you can manage challenging behavior and attitudes;
â€¢ How you can teach your child to cope with his or her behavior; and
â€¢ How all of you can avoid blaming and feeling guilty.
