Starting with the idea that all children are born with individual temperaments, Neville and Johnson, parenting educators in Oakland, California, build on the work of Dr. Stella Chess and Dr. Alexander Thomas, who identified nine temperament traits in children. Parents are encouraged to identify their children's temperament types based on descriptions for activity level, adaptability, approach to new things, frustration reaction, intensity of emotions, mood, regularity, and sensitivity. The remaining chapters describe various temperament types and give parents suggestions for how to deal with children who have them. Special attention is given to the "mesh" between the parent's temperament and that of the child. This is a useful book for all parents and others who work closely with children. Highly recommended.Kay L. Brodie, Chesapeake Coll., Wye Mills., Md.
