I read an autographed copy of _Raising Your Spirited Child_ by Mary Sheedy Kurcinka. I was delightfully surprised to learn that the author lives in a Minneapolis suburb (in Minnesota) & that she did research for this book through ECFE (Early Childhood Family Education - a program that only exsists in Minnesota & has been around for 25 yrs). I was thrilled to learn that through ECFE there are Raising Your Spirited Child - Positive Parenting Seminars.
I will be attending a seminar titled "Intensity - Diffusing Strong Reactions" in Dec & another seminar titled "Persistence - Choosing Your Battles" in Jan.
For those who are interested there is a support group for parents of Spirited Kids who use Attachment Parenting methods, go to:http://www.groups.yahoo.com/group/AP-SpiritedKids
