About the Book
Finally, a self-help parenting book that assists parents in appreciating how temperament influences the development of their school-age children. This book explains that temperament is a way of describing the normal variations in behavior that exist among children. Temperament is not a diagnosis that negatively labels a child. Instead, it helps to explain a child's innate strengths and other respective characteristics that are likely to concern parents and other caregivers.
Based on the research and clinical practice of the author, this book presents a variety of ways to recognize a child's temperament and an assortment of strategies that can be adopted to manage his or her behavior. These same strategies have proven to be successful for parents who participated in a clinical trial conducted by Dr. McClowry. This book is also intended for clinicians who work with children and their parents. For more information about the book or to order it, contact www.researchpress.com.
