Item Description...
Your child may be a dreamer if... *He forgets to follow instructions, no matter how clear and simple you make them. *She craves praise and positive attention, yet refuses to conform to what's expected. *He complains often about feeling misunderstood, picked on, or persecuted. *She tells more than her share of fibs, lies, or tall tales. If these statements describe your child, you know the frustration of turning to parenting experts for advice only to find that with your child, the systems don't work, the rules don't stick, and the strong boundary setting seems to make the situation worse. What's even more frustrations is seeing that these methods do work-with strong-willed children. According to child and family counselors, Ron L. Braund and Dana Scott Spears, the problem may be that you don't have a strong-willed child. Your child's behavior may actually indicate that he or she is a creative-sensitive child, a dreamer: principle-oriented rather than rule-oriented, highly creative, sensitive to the point of taking offense where none is intended, and frustrated at a world that fails to live up to the ideal. In this book, the authors explain the differences between the dreamer and the strong-willed child. They also provide advice on parenting your dreamer child from infancy through adolescence, plus a special chapter on the dreamer child with attention deficit disorder. Whether you are the teacher, coach, clergy, or parent of a dreamer, this book will help you understand how these enigmatic children view the world and teach you how to give them what they need to thrive.

Publishers Description

If you recognize these actions in your child, you know the frustration of turning to parenting experts for advice only to find the systems don't work, the rules don't stick and strong boundary setting makes the situation worse. The creative-sensitive dreamer is not the strong-willed child. Get this book and learn how to parent your special needs child who is principle -oriented rather than rule-oriented, highly creative, overly sensitive and frustrated at a world that fails to live up to the ideal.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Liked it, but could have more practical advice  Aug 8, 2006
I liked this book, but I thought they should have included more everyday, practical advice for a child that is a "dreamer."
Wow, Mom and I don't hate each other!!!  Oct 20, 2005
I am so excited about what I've learned by reading this book. I always thought that my Mother hated me and was intentionally tearing me apart (She didn't think I was much of a treat either). Now I realize that it all boils down to personality and how we look at the world. Differences in the way we perceive the world around us and the different types of things that drive our emotions and goals in life. Each example set off light bulbs, now I finally have the direction I've needed to try to get our relationship to be less volatile. Definitely worth the read!!!
MUST READ!!!  Feb 5, 2005
If you have found this book then you NEED it! I have always been interested in personality types but when my shild turned 5 I was desperate to 'figure' her out. After reading 'Strong-WIlled Child' I was even more lost. Everything in that book did NOT work (any more with her than it did with me when MY parents tried it on ME!). It was about page 3 of this book that the light bulb turned on and I realized I WAS A DREAMER! As is my daughter. This is the most applicable book on personalities I have ever read!
Incredible  Nov 7, 2004
I originally bought this book for my wife. But I ended reading it myself one day. And it was definitely an eye opener for me. Not because it helped me as a parent, even though it has. It helped answer a lot of questions I had about myself. What started as an attempt to assist my wife in understanding our daughter ended up as a quasi life changing event for myself. A surprise and a relief. I thought it was just me.
When I read this book, I FINALLY understood my son, and MYSELF! It was an "Ah-HA!" moment for me!! The more I talked to parents who were frustrated with their kids, and asked them questions that were asked in the book,I realized there were a lot of frustrated, misunderstood kids out there as well. I was able to bring up some points from the book and was able to give my friends an "Ah-ha" moment too! One major thing was that they are misunderstood as being strong willed when in fact, they're not, and if children are treated as such,it actually makes things worse.
I found this book SO helpful(and I read a lot of these types of books)that I ordered over 10 copies to give to my friends(and my school and church library)who have kids like this.(I didn't want them to 'suffer' like I did)(Although I hate the term "dreamer" because it implies someone "spacy")
