Carol Tuttle is the best-selling author of five books and the creator of online learning programs Energy Profiling and Dressing Your Truth.
Carol received her post-baccalaureate training in numerous energy psychology and natural healing methods. For over 20 years, her work in the field of self-help and personal development has helped hundreds of thousands worldwide to improve every aspect of their lives--from money, to health, relationships, fashion, parenting, to overall emotional well-being.
Her first two books, The Path to Wholeness and Remembering Wholeness, promote personal growth by teaching empowering energy healing methods.
In her experience with energy healing, Carol observed that different people express different energies and natural movements. She developed a program called Energy Profiling that helps people identify and honor their true natures, strengths, and gifts. Her book, It's Just My Nature, explains this program in depth.
Applying her Energy Profiling model to beauty and fashion, she then created an online makeover program called Dressing Your Truth. Women from over 60 countries around the world have become members of Carol's Dressing Your Truth program. Carol's book Dressing Your Truth: Discover Your Personal Beauty Profile is the first step to dressing true to your nature.
Carol Tuttle's latest book applies Energy Profiling to the world of parenting. The Child Whisperer turns longstanding parenting assumptions on their heads and shows how parenting can be an even more intuitive, cooperative, fulfilling experience than any good parent even imagines.
Carol is the mother of five grown children. She and Jonathan, her husband of 32 years, reside in Utah. Carol enjoys the outdoors and loves to challenge herself through competitive tennis and triathlons. Her favorite place in the world, besides home, is the North Shore of Oahu.
I've worked in the child development field for over 28 years and have a degree in professional child care. With all of the training and books I have read, I have never seen such a thorough resource for understanding children's individuality and how to guide them into joyful, productive adults. It's one of those "wish I would have had it years ago" book full of incredible information on understanding the four types of energy profiles in children. I have 6 children and 6 grandchildren and am thrilled to have a deeper understanding of their individuality. It's so much more than just understanding a personality as other books have identified. It's about physical features, movement, ways of relating to the world and what motivates each type. By understanding a child's true nature, you can learn to parent or teach them without wounding and stifling their natural talents, abilities and tendencies which are the things that make them amazing and wonderful. As you become a "Child Whisperer" you will learn to guide them in a positively enriching way rather than trying to change them to what you think they should be or a traditional "mold" of social expectations. Many tips throughout the book give you ideas in relating to each child's type. There is also a section on the pitfalls of traditional parenting methods and beliefs. This is a book that every parent, grandparent, teacher, coach, daycare provider or anyone who cares about children should have on their bookshelf. If you want to see more joy and peace and a better relationship between you and a child, you need this book!
I have NEVER had a book so clearly and thoroughly help me understand EACH of my children, individually. Not to mention get positive results QUICKLY, like within a day of applying the tools the author, Carol Tuttle, offers in this book!
I have always heard that "every child is so different" but when I go to look for a parenting book when problems come up...I have only ever found "one-size-fits-all" solutions...which usually end up NOT being solutions...because, well, every child is different! If a certain solution has worked for one of my children I now know it worked because that solution naturally honored and supported my child.
No matter the age of your child (even adult children!), the personality of your child or the challenges you are facing I am confident that this book will be an incredibly healing tool for all parents. In fact, this book will help ANY person who interacts with children regularly, including teachers, day care providers, grandparents, aunts, uncles, etc.

I have five young children, and although I may know my kids better than anyone else, I learned so much more about each of them through reading this book. Our interactions, discussions, and even difficulties have become much simpler and more joyful. It's true that a one-size-fits-all parenting approach doesn't work when you've got children that have different motivations, different ways of moving through the world, and different natural expressions! One of the things I love about this book is that I can become my own parenting expert and feel confident in the approaches that I try, because they are approaches that are tailored to each of my kids and what they need from me as their parent. I also love that it is so comprehensive and, at 432 pages, is a wonderful resource and a great reference as my kids age and their needs change. It is not a book that I'll read once and just put on the shelf. I'll be referring to it again and again.
The Child Whisperer is not only great for parents, but I noticed that it can also be really helpful for anyone who interacts with or works with children. Think: a schoolteacher who wants to motivate all her uniquely different students, a grandmother who wants to be an influence for good in her grandchildren's lives, a social worker who works with troubled teens, a community member who is concerned about the direction young people seem to be headed. The applications are really endless.Read more ›
The Child Whisperer is the best parenting book I have ever read. There is so much information for parents to learn to honor their children for who they really are. Parents will use this book to help them raise their chilren true to their individual nature's, and not to force a change in who they were born to be. Children thrive when allowed to be who the are, and when parents understand who they are.

I have been a fan of Carol Tuttle's for some time now, but this book just really sealed the deal on my love for her! I was lucky enough to receive an advance copy of the book last week, and I devoured it in 2 days. There are some things in the book that are just really great common sense conscious child rearing that are always great to hear, but the way she was able to describe my child based on his type was unbelievable!
I still have not decided what type my 3 year old son is, he is a Type 1 or a Type 4, and most likely a combination of the two! There were so many scenarios in the book that spoke directly to problems we have been having and the best ways to handle them according to his type. I have been slowly trying them out with great success. I am definitely giving this book to every new Mom I know, I can't think of a better baby gift. Of course, this book is a must for a child of any age...
