    "The Child Whisperer" has become one of my favorite bo

    "The Child Whisperer" has become one of my favorite books on parenting. I refer to it often. I've worked in the field of Child Development for over 12 years and have a Master's Degree in Early Childhood Education. With all of the training I received and books I have read, the concepts presented in this book have made a huge impact on my parenting beliefs.

    Carol helps parents view their children with a new perspective. This book provided me with profound insight about Child-Centered Parenting, Child Temperaments, and Parenting Styles. It helped me to more clearly understand what motivates children to behave as they do. This information is very thorough and a great resource for understanding children's individuality and how to raise cooperative, motivated, confident children who feel loved and supported.

    If I could recommend one book on parenting it would be "The Child Whisperer" by Carol Tuttle. I consider this book to be a great asset to my field and a valuable resource for parents and adults who work with children. With these new insights, adults can give children the gift of being understood, heard, respected, and validated.

    A life changing resource!

    This book helped me understand my children and their true nature. a lot of parenting books have great ideas, but they are presupposing that all children think and function similarly. I love that this book individualizes the parenting tips for each child based on their energy type. It not only gives you information on how they think and why the act the way they act, but it also gives specific tips on how to communicate more effectively, how to show love, how to discipline etc. for each energy type. It has changed my life because I can now see and appreciate my children's differences as unique strengths, instead of being frustrated because they don't think and move through life in the same way I do. My relationships with them are so much stronger!
