This book is EXCELLENT. Every parent needs to read it.
I have 5 children and this book has helped me so much to see
what makes my children different, and has enabled me to accept
them just as they are. Just one example-my third son has always seemed to be lazy. He is just not motivated to work. I used to worry that I was raising a lazy adult but this book showed me that he is a phlegmatic, and phlegmatics tend to be that way! They find the shortest way to do things and are unmotivated to get their work done. I now understand my little guy and why he is like he is-I can accept him as living according to his temperament. I could give several other examples.
This book is practical in that it lists the strengths and weaknesses of each temperament and gives ideas for parents on how to raise their children according to how they are. I loved that it pairs up the different combinations of parents and children.
I could go on and on but suffice it to say that I read the book in just a couple of days and learned so much that it's changed the way I relate to my children. I even learned much about me and also about my husband.
It's a fascinating, practical, life-changing book. I can't recommend it highly enough.
Now I'm off to read her book for adults, "Personality Plus". :)

I disagree with the reviewer below. This book explains why kids act the way they do, it doesn't excuse their behavior or give them a license to sin because of it.

I understand my children SO much better than before I read this book. They all know their temperaments and they can spot others' temperaments right away. This helps us understand people. It has helped me understand my husband where I didn't in almost 20 years of marriage. I understand my sister and where she used to offend me now I realize she just tends to be flaky. :)

I could say so much about this book. I truly think every parent should read it. I like the one for adults as well.

Last but not least this book even helped me understand myself.

To me this book isn't unbiblical. It helped me in all good ways. I know how to specifically pray for my children and them understanding why they are prone to do the things they do or feel the way they feel....it's all good. I can't say enough good things about this book.

Format: Paperback
This book is timeless in its content and applicable to all ages of parents/grandparents and children/grandchildren. The book includes a profile to help you establish the personalities of each child/parent and then offers natural characteristics of each personality and how they interact with one another. You will find the strengths and weaknesses of each one and how to work out the struggles that accompany those characteristics. I have personally used this book over and over to help me understand my own children and grandchildren. In addition, as a retreat speaker,a MOPS speaker, and a presenter at parenting seminars, this book is the focus of my presentations. After people buy this book and read it, I receive calls to have one-on-one conversations to help guide them in better relationships with their child/children. This book is truly a gift to parents in helping them understand how their child functions and how they can reinforce the strengths and help overcome the weaknesses. Read it and find a new relationship with your child/grandhild.

Format: Paperback
Florence Littauer has written a book that has the potential to transform relationships. Her knowledge of personality types and how to deal with them will help you better understand not only your children but yourself as well.
The author gives clear descriptions of the four personality types. Rather than stopping with a description, she goes on to share parenting ideas for each type of child. This is very helpful, but she goes further still! I found the most helpful sections to be those where the author spelled out how a parent with one personality type can get along with and bring out the best in a child of another personality.
If you have children you just can't figure out, this book will help you.

Format: Paperback
Having read Personality Plus and thoroughly enjoyed that, I bought "PP for Parents" as gift to my sister (and read it too).
I'm single, but I suppose the book is really helpful for parents to understand their children better. How many times we hear parents say "I wish you're more like your brother!"? Every child is different and each should be treated differently accordingly. This book explains how they differ, and guides us on how to more effectively deal with it. Parents could also avoid unnecessary or even damaging reaction/treatment to the differences.
Since the personality of an individual is innate, recognizing it in a child is easier. And critical. It is beneficial to start early in harnessing the potential - sharping the good side of it, and smothering the negative one. Make the best of the different personality.
Emotional health developed during childhood has great impact throughout a person's life. I think it would be a loss not to read this book.

7 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Irene LaPapa-Vickers on January 24, 2004
Format: Paperback
I have four children, and they all have different personalities. This book has helped me to identify which personality the children fall under, then what I can do about it to build up their strengths and help them work on their weaknesses. Because I am a "Perfect Melancholy" as I parent I tend to expect perfection, the book warns against that and advises to ease up on my perfectionism. This is just one example, but the book is awsome. I have shared it with my friends and we all have had a great time taking the personality test to see which personality we are. If you want to understand your children better please get this book!! Why does your daughter always talk, talk, talk? And why does your son like to take the path of least resistance all the time? I highly recommend this book from one mom to another.
