    Unique Handbook For Parents

    Author Ray W. Lincoln has written an invaluable resource for parents in understanding their own temperaments, thereby being able to understand their children.
    "I'm a Keeper" provides the keys to opening lines of communication so the day-to-day problems between parent and child becomes minimal. Finding out which personality you and your child is enables you to recognize how to parent your child in the most positive manner.
    You will discover how and why your children feel, think, and act the way they do, and how they see you. You will also learn what motivates both you and your child.
    I have a young grandchild in my life and I'm definitely giving my son and his wife a copy.
    "I'm a Keeper" is a book that should be on every parents list and in every educators library. Mr. Lincoln has done a superb job. I highly recommend this book for anyone who works with children. It will enlighten your life!

    Fantastic Resource for Families!

    I May Frustrate You, But I'm a Keeper by Ray W. Lincoln could be a life-changing book for parents and teachers, and the children in their lives. Having been a facilitator for parenting classes for over twenty years, I do believe that I have just found a resource that parents should not be without. I also think that if I would have the parents of my students help to identify their child's temperament style at the beginning of the school year, it could be very enlightening and helpful in teaching my third graders, and would help the parents as well. I truly am looking forward to sharing this book with both parents and teachers.

    Mr. Lincoln takes us into the historical background of temperaments but puts his book into a reader-friendly format so that readers can learn about themselves and how they approach life. The Adult Temperament Key as well as the Child Temperament Key are based on research and are quick and easy to figure out and just may change the reader's whole approach to working with the children, either at home or in the classroom. The bottom line is the assessments are evaluating how you are made on the inside. They are strength-finding assessments, so very positive in nature.

    Mr. Lincoln states in I'm a Keeper that "This book is your basic manual for parenting with understanding and skill; and if you follow its suggestions you will become a Super Parent." I believe that combining your knowledge about temperament with a few other parenting strategies would prove Mr. Lincoln to be correct. We all want to be "super parents," do we not? Purchasing this book is a small investment that will pay off in a big way if readers take the time to approach life via the strategies provided in this manual.
