Most of this is "the obvious," but I think, at times, good advice that parents (and grandparents) need to be reminded of. Things like remember that not all children react the same way, but that those reactions are neither good nor bad, and suggestions on how to handle certain patterns and situations. Instead of "fixing" your child's tendencies, the suggestions are labeled, "How You Might Respond to a ______ Child."

pg. 42: "Don't label your child as [*]. Labels can stick and become self-fulfilling prophecies."
* book used shy, but I think this is wise universal advice.
