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 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.
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 ›
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...
