Most children fall into five basic peronality types that stem from inborn physical characteristics: sensitive, self-absorbed, defiant, inattentive, or active/aggressive. For each of theses, there are parenting patterns to avoid and those the help the most. The Challenging Child reassures parents that they do not simply have to "live with" their child's temperment but can fit their parenting style to their child's unique personality and help each child build on strengths, master weaknesses, and embrace life with confidence and skills.
