Overview

This groundbreaking book gives parents the benefit of thirty years of research into temperament in an accessible, useful format. One of the country's most respected pediatricians, Dr. William B. Carey, explains what temperament is and why it matters to you and to your child. He helps you profile your child's temperament and offers practical suggestions for working with - rather than against - that temperament, from infancy through adolescence. This comprehensive book examines temperament's influence on a broad range of areas - physical health, development, school performance, and how a child responds to stress and crises. Dr. Carey explains nine largely inborn temperament characteristics: activity, adaptability, distractibility, initial reaction, intensity, mood, persistence and attention span, regularity, and sensitivity.
