Great Parenting Skills for Navigating Your Kid’s Personality
By Kate Jones, M.Ed & Wayne Jones, M.Ed
Do you sometimes wonder if your child is trying to drive you crazy? Or do you sometimes ask the question, “Why can’t they be more like me?”
Great Parenting Skills for Navigating Your Kid’s Personality (GPS) is the product of the authors’ parenting workshops on the four temperaments/colours that help parents understand better “what makes our kid tick.” The book acts as a Roadmap (…or GPS!) that provides effective parenting techniques geared to your child’s specific and natural way of behaving, while promoting positive self-esteem. It supports the notion that every child has great potential ready to be unlocked.
Based on the theory behind Personality Dimensions®, GPS is fun, easy-to-read and filled with real-life stories and anecdotes to help you identify what each temperament wants and what gets in the way. This book provides practical strategies for raising children in a positive environment that enhances your kid’s specific nature. – “Yummy” or “Yucky” – Ready! Set!
