"Finally, a fresh approach to the whole 'difficult child' category. In this insightful and moving work, Michael Popkin shows parents the positive potential of these spirited children without making excuses for their behavior. His 'taming' methods are as humane as they are effective." -- Thom Hartmann, author of Attention Deficit Disorder: A Different Perception

"I adore the real strategies and know parents will be so grateful for the positive spin on 'spirit.' This is one of the best parenting books for raising challenging children." -- Michele Borba, Ed.D., author of No More Misbehavin'

"This text should be required reading for anyone responsible for children. As a pediatrician, I know that captivating the difficult-to-manage child's spirit and redirecting that energy into positive thoughts and actions can go a long way towards improving social outcomes." -- Dr. Melina McVicar, professor of Clinical Pediatrics, New York Medical College

HASH(0x8ce08bb8) von 5 Sternen balanced parenting approach 21. Mai 2008
Von M. Segelman - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
This book is my favorite parenting book. It is full of tricks and techniques, but the beauty of the book is really the overall approach to parenting. It is very valuable with ANY child, not just the most spirited ones. You really have to read the book through before you have a full picture of what your stance towards your kids should be.

I have read many different parenting books, some of which I found very helpful. In particular, I enjoyed Mary Sheedy Kurcinka's books, including Kids, Parents and Power Struggles. It was very strong in learning how to respect your child's needs, listening to the emotions underlying their misbehaviors, and trying to work with them. It fell short in showing you how to teach the child limits despite their emotions. When I was following her approach, I got much better at preventing tantrums and meltdowns. However, when we did have tantrums, I would try out all her suggestions and when they still did not work I would feel so powerless that I would just lose it, drop all her loving techniques and try to force them into submission.

Dr Popkin leads you through how to build a fair, firm and friendly relationship, a perfect balance between permissiveness and authoritarianism, how to give them freedom WITHIN LIMITS so that you can be loving without getting stuck feeling powerless. In fact, he has a whole chapter on "the dynamics of power" to help you realize that when you lose it, they've won -- so it's pretty worthwhile to control yourself! He builds on Ms Kurcinka's approach (cites her in the bibliography) but "fills in the cracks" which I had from following her approach.

I would still recommend Ms Kurcinka's book if you need elaboration on how to understand your child's perspective and how to understand what makes you tick as the parent. However, if you're only going to read one parenting book, I would say to stick to this one.

HASH(0x8ce08c0c) von 5 Sternen Don't bother 27. Februar 2009
Von Bill Jones - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
This book isn't awful, but it is useless compared to Raising Your Spirited Child by Mary Sheedy Kurcinka. Some books, like Kurcinka's, are classics for a reason. Others, like Taming... are also-ran's. What little useful information Taming has seems "borrowed" from either Kurcinka's book or from Adele Faber and Elaine Mazlish's How to Talk So Kids Will Listen, which is another excellent resource to consider before buying this one.

HASH(0x8ce08fc0) von 5 Sternen Excellent resource for parents with "spirited" kids 5. November 2007
Von Mom of twins - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Just when you think you have no options left and are about to lose your mind, this book comes in with hope and skills to work effectively with your spirited child. Not only is the author a professional in the field, he is also the father of a spirited child.

The only downside I would give the book are that there are so many points and guidelines that you almost have to have the book in hand while you are having an interaction with your child. I went through it with a highlighter the first time and I would definitely recommend reading it more than once, along with the other parent in the house.

Great strategies that really work.

HASH(0x8ce0c42c) von 5 Sternen Author is insightful and keeps it interesting. 7. November 2007
Von M. McBride - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
In my search for books about handling hard-to-handle kids, this one stands out for a couple of reasons. (1)The author seems to really "get" the spirited child mentality and how, if it is pointed in the right direction, this spirit can be the foundation of an exceptional person. "Spirited" is more than just a euphemism for "naughty"; it gets at the idea that these kids are more full of life than most, a fact that can be turned to their benefit. Also, the author makes sense of the spirited mentality in the context of modern democratic society. It really clicked for me. (2)The book is written and structured in a very approachable way. The author uses metaphors to bring the more abstract concepts down to earth and acronyms to make them stick in memory (especially helpful when in mid-conflict). Also should mention that the author's sense of humor made this an unexpectedly entertaining read, which was a nice bonus.

This was an excellent book, I like specific 1-2-3 type books, and this one really is a great help. I didn't agree 100% with the author on every thing, but everyone's entitled to their own opinion (for example I just don't see the value in encouraging a child to take out his frustrations on a pillow or other object; it still encourages a violent physical reaction to stress in my opinion). Having said that, his strategies work with our spirited grandchild. I wish I had had it to raise my own children, and they weren't in the category of spirited; it is just as valuable in general parenting. I am so glad the author explained the spirited child's thinking,he shares a lot of insight; and how to encourage him but not give him everything he demands. I felt better about my 'grandparenting' after I read the book. I was raised-as he described-the old way of expecting blind obedience (do it because I'm the father & I said so-). That is the only way I knew to parent & grandparent, but this book has changed my parenting style. I always worried about breaking their spirits. Now we have peace in our household when the grandchild comes, and I truly enjoy him for the wonderful unique gift from God that he is. I highly recommend this book to anyone with an intelligent spirited child. It really works.
