Understanding Temperament

by Lyndall Shick, M.A.

Reviews and Comments

“The premise here makes sense: since parents can’t really change their child’s temperament, why not work with and around it? [Shick] explains how contrasts in a parent’s and a child’s temperament can create clashes and outlines strategies that can be used to avoid and alleviate such problems.”
Publishers Weekly
“A clash between temperaments and parenting styles can set up a vicious cycle of negative interactions in families. . .Parents who adopt a temperament approach to parenting reduce conflicts. . .and can avoid years of conflict. . .that erode the self-esteem and confidence of both the children and adults.”
—Ohio State Extension educator
“This practical guide. . .recognizes the important role of each individual’s temperament.”
—Positive Parenting, Prince George’s County Memorial Library System
“Invest in your family’s health and happiness by parenting with temperament in mind.”
