Hi folks. I am an Australian mum of a very strong willed Miss 5. We are getting results from the book but it's hard work. I wish Robert had included more on what a strong-will can achieve later in life. To help me keep faith in the long view... What do you all think? What do you think the unique and beautiful aspects of a strong will are? How do you think strong willed kids turn out as adults, with and without being well parented (ie. what are the consequences, yep there's that word again, of them not getting the boundaries they need). Can we help them turn negative persistence into positive persistence. Robert if you are reading this, please make a response. As a strong willed person myself, I have seen the benefits of a strong will, but also the down side. It's all a bit close to home. Can't wait to hear from you.
