All children have their moments - temper tantrums in the supermarket, stubbornness when they don't like what's for dinner, crankiness when they're overtired - but some of them seem to have developed their resistant behavior in the womb and are ready for fighting from birth. Call them strong-willed or call them spirited, the good news is, strong doesn't have to mean bad, and there are many ways to parent children with definite opinions without letting everyday clashes become the norm. In The Complete Idiot's Guider to Raising a Strong-Willed Child, parents learn how to capitalize on their child's strengths, maximizing their good days and making their bad days more manageable. It helps them better parent the child they have, instead of trying to turn him into the child they think he's supposed to be. The authors share ideas and techniques to make the everyday and the special occasions more pleasant. Parenting. Family & health.
