Ages 5-12. This evidence-based parenting manual emphasizes the major impact that a child's temperament has on his or her behavior and development. The book helps parents to develop strategies that are responsive to their child's unique temperament. Dr. McClowry draws on her 15 years of research with school-age children and their families and 30 years of clinical practice as a pediatric nurse and preschool teacher. She combines her professional expertise with her own experience of being a parent to offer a down-to-earth parenting approach that will improve child behavior and make family interactions more relaxed and enjoyable. The manual features the School-Age Temperament Inventory (SATI), a 38-item parent inventory of children's temperament. The SATI has undergone extensive development and evaluation.
