Attempts to fill in the gaps that other "traditional" parenting books leave with thoughtful discussion on parenting. I thought the scriptural references were a little stretched, but oh well. Lots of decent suggestions, or food for thought in developing a more positive and proactive (rather than r...

Written from an LDS perspective, this may just have been the most helpful parenting book I've read. It gives both great strategies for dealing with children who are intense (in my case, intensely sensitive, in particular) but also really helps reshape the way you view these children...seeing thes...

I LOOOOOOOOOOVVVVVVVVVVVEEEEEEEDDDD this book. It was right on for both of my children. I wish I could have discovered it three or four years ago.

I really liked this and as I was reading I kept thinking "yes! this is my child..." I feel like I have my eyes opened up to a new way to view my firstborn. This is written by mother-daughter of some pretty intense children. Not just kids going through the 'terrible twos' or whatever, but kids who...

This is a really intriguing, eye-opening book. I've got 5 children, one that from birth has given us more opportunities to learn and practice good parenting skills (nice way to say, "He's one tough kid!").

A cool LDS perspective on why maybe children who are saved for the latter days may be a little more difficult to parent: "an EC has great determination, energy, and a headstrong will. EC are also often high maintenance, emotional, con...

I borrowed this from a friend a while back--it is sort of a "Raising Your Spirited Child" with an LDS perspective. Having a daughter who is definitely "intensely more" with her feelings, I really enjoyed the "our strengths are our weaknesses" reminder. I honestly can't remember if I even finished...

This is an amazing book. If you're child seems not to fit the ordinary cast of children... If other parenting strategies aren't working...you'll love this book. It shows how what seem like difficult personality traits in your child can actually become wonderful strengths later in life, if they ar...

This is one of the best parenting books I've ever read. It combines parenting advice with the gospel to teach parents, not only how to help their children behave but how to encourage the traits they will need to grow up to be contributers to the world and the church. This book goes beyond making...

Maybe it was just my mood at the time, but tone of this book struck me as off. I'm sure the authors are well-intentioned, but I would cringe at every mention of "my child is more". It felt borderline elitist, describing a class of children who are better than others.
I only made it a few chapters...
