The Temperament Factor

The Temperament Factor: Preventing Misbehavior by Managing Intensity
Experts now recognize what parents have always known: children have their individual characteristics right from birth. Some children are more persistent, more sensitive, more intense than their peers – a real challenge for their parents. Discipline techniques that work with other children often don’t work with these kids. You’ll discover ways to prevent problems and make life easier, at the same time as you learn the strengths that come with a “difficult” temperament.
