As a strong-willed adult who was also a strong-willed child, I need to help you understand these special children. And avoid you, the parent, losing the will to live in the process. I want to see you and them thrive, developing a strong secure attachment on the way. Highlighting attunement and why this is so important.
It combines my love and knowledge of psychological theory with common sense practical strategies. Helping you get the most from your parenting and understanding and seeing your child at a much deeper level. I’ve always said children are our best teachers. We may not feel we need the lesson, but it has presented itself anyway.
There are many words used to describe strong-willed children and most of them are incredibly negative. Strong-willed children get a bad rap and are generally misunderstood and classed as ‘difficult’ or ‘challenging’. Most of these negative classifications are a result of the management style of the parent.
I’m going to guide you into the nitty-gritty of psychology, helping you understand where it’s all going wrong and why. My long career has taken many interesting turns and my life’s work is helping parents understand their strong-willed children. And teaching the parent how to avoid a fixed mindset using attunement.
If you don’t use attunement, then you most likely don’t have a secure attachment. The two concepts go hand in hand.
My previous book about separation anxiety is inextricably linked to this book.
Temperament impacts your parenting far more than most parents realise. In my career as a midwife and baby whisperer, I have spent years studying these incredible little humans.
This book unlocks the secrets to what makes them tick and how to understand them at a very deep level. Once you have these tools you are on your way to helping your strong-willed child be the truly amazing child and adult they are destined to be.
