9781884734359: Temperament Tools: Working With Your Child's Inborn Traits

One of your children is easy-going. The other one’s a challenge every single day. This book helps parents and teachers understand that temperament isn’t good or badâ€"it’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 they’re bornâ€"and their temperaments stay different no matter how they’re parented. But your children’s behavior does reflect their inborn traits; once you understand those traits, you’ll be better prepared to handle behavior. Written specifically to help with young children, "Temperament Tools" explains:

• What’s normal for your child;
• How you can manage challenging behavior and attitudes;
• How you can teach your child to cope with his or her behavior; and
• How all of you can avoid blaming and feeling guilty.
