really liked it
Read in February, 2009

I found this book very helpful. It deals with children with a sensitive "temperament," which the author states is about 15-20% of children. I found defining the temperament rather vague, but can understand why given the many variances humans have in our personalities. I read the book as a way to get parenting ideas on how to deal with a child with specific and intense sensitivities, and I felt it was helpful in this regard. I only skimmed some parts (about infants and teenagers) because I took notes on the parts that really apply right now, and still needed more time to process that information alone. But I did find it helpful and appreciated a little better understanding that will hopefully make me a better parent with a confident, happy child.
