The Strong-Willed Child Author:Dr. James Dobson Dr. James Dobson writes, "There is within the nature of some children a sweet and compliant temperament which brings tears of joy to the eyes of their appreciative parents. As infants they don't cry very often and they sleep through the night from the second week and they goo at the grandparents and they smile while being diapered and they're p... more »atient when dinner is overdue. And, of course, they never spit up on the way to church... Just as surely as some children are naturally compliant, however, there are others who seem to be looking for a fight upon exit from the womb. Such a child comes into the world smoking a cigar and yelling about the temperature in the delivery room and the incompetence of the nursing staff. As the months unfold, his expression of willful defiance becomes even more apparent, reaching a hurricane force during toddlerhood." This assertive little fellow, whom Dr. Dobson calls "the strong-willed child," is a precious human being who needs a special kind of understanding and discipline by his parents. This book is devoted to his unique needs...and the most common errors made by frustrated parents.
