Many people like to think there is a definitive way of bringing up children, but there is not.
This book is about children's different temperaments and how you can use this knowledge in your parenting.
A child's temperament has a great influence on how it is brought up. An outgoing child will be met with negative reactions, and thus starts the vicious circle. An accommodating child will be met with positive reactions and do well. In this sense children contribute to their own development, but it is the parents who are chiefly responsible for how their lives are.
Temperament is significant for how you relate to a child who will not sleep or eat, how you tackle cleanliness and what to do if Your child does not have friends. A means of doing this with multiple children is also illuminated.
The point is that there is not one way of approaching children, you need to adapt your parenting for your child! This book is based on the very latest research.
