My four children keep me busy but I wouldn’t have it any other way. I have three boys and one girl who demand much of my time and energy (both physical and emotional). Since I love to read, I try to pick up books now and then that may assist me in my endeavor to raise happy children who feel loved. In my reading, I have stumbled upon two books that do just that. Both of these books have dramatically helped me become a more patient and understanding mother.
The Child Whisperer by Carol Tuttle. This lady categorizes children into what she calls “Energy Types.” According to her theory, each child has two dominant types. What I found helpful was not only the definition of each personality but her lists of how they are applicable to parents. She explains how to identify hidden messages in your child’s behavior and how to help motivate them in a positive way.
