Item Description...
What does your child really mean when shouting, "You can't make me!" or "Look at me!" Dealing with a spirited child can make the best of parents feel inadequate, frustrated, and completely defeated. Based on a survey of parents in both the United States and Europe, authors and family experts David and Claudia Arp, have identified the eight most common "cries" of the spirited, or strong-willed, child. And in the pages of this remarkable book, they reveal what these cries really mean and how you can answer those cries and confidently guide your child toward maturity. If you're looking for practical help, sympathetic insight, and hope for raising a spiritually and emotionally healthy child, this is the book for you.

Publishers Description
Besides feeling ready to pull their hair out, parents of spirited children are often convinced that their spirited child would behave better if only Mom or Dad were smarter, wiser or more patient In their new book on"difficult" children, child development experts Claudia and David Arp remind readers that there's no such thing as a Super Parent.
Having a spirited child can make parenting more intense and sometimes overwhelming, but you can begin to recognize the eight most common cries for help and what they really mean: "Look at me " "Did I do good?" "You're not listening " "Let me do it my way " "You can't make me anymore " "I hate you " "I can do it myself " and "I am a big kid already " The Arps -- with humor, compassion, insights from Scripture, and the latest in research -- show you ways to develop win-win strategies for nurturing your not-so-compliant child. Help just arrived.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Standard advice-nothing special for spirited kids  May 11, 2007
First, buyers should know this is aimed at Christians. If you don't want to be a Christian, don't buy this book. I am a Christian, so that part didn't bother me. But, the book quotes extensively from other books, and the advice is pretty much the advice all other ordinary books give. The "war stories" gave me comfort that other parents have 8- and 9-year-olds who still throw extreme tantrums, but the book didn't give any real answers to how to teach a child to calm down before exploding.

I found Mary Kurcinka's books to be far more helpful.
Understand what our children are really saying.  Jul 31, 2003
Having raised three "spirited" sons I can heartily reccommend Answering the 8 Cries of the Spirited Child. How I wish I'd had this book when I entered my child raising years! Not only do the Arps give us tangible, specific tools to provide understanding, encouragement, boundaries, and a listening ear to our spirited children, but they give us hope for maintaining our sanity as parents. This book is a must read for all parents.
