I was reading back over some old posts in The Beetle Shack this afternoon, when I came across one entitled 'Being Spirited Is NOT An Excuse To Be A Meanie'. Emily got my attention here! She talked a bit about what it is like to parent a spirited child, and referred to a helpful book. Well, I'm all over that like ants at a picnic!
Our Evie is a very spirited child, which I love, she is energetic, active, alert, engaging... but along with that come some not so positive descriptions; difficult, strong-willed, stubborn...
I'm going to read the book suggested in the blog post, 'Raising Your Spirited Child'. I feel that especially as we add a baby to our family our parenting of Evie can use all the help & encouragement we can get!
I don't tend to buy or read parenting books, or self-help books for that matter, have you got any you'd like to rave about?
