Raising Your Spirited Child - Mary Kurcinka

Ethan's an odd fella.
We love him dearly,
but his moods are everywhere.

I picked up Raising Your Spirited Child some time ago, hoping for some insights on what makes Ethan tick. Upon beginning the book, it appeared that Ethan was not what the author considers a spirited child. He's normal. Whatever that is. lol

But even though Ethan didn't fit into this cut out, I still really liked her insights. She gave me great ideas on how to handle Ethan's tantrums, and even how to spot them and deal with them before they actually occur.

I'm not one to read books on raising children. We all have our own approach, but it was good to get a few new ideas.

Putting it on my TBR list. Anything that gives insight on tantrums is something for me to read!
