ok, DS was a mellow child, "typical". nothing too out of the ordinary.
DD, 15 mo old, is quite a different child, as i should expect, as the ARE different kids!!
she is stubborn and has started having "tantrums". i think some of it is her non-verbalness, as she responds well to "show us" when she is obviously upset or in need of something.
any book recommendations, hopefully ones i could get at the library?
thanks!!

Raising Your Spirited Child by Mary Sheedy Kurcinka.

Excellent, excellent book! It teaches you how to understand and work with your child, rather than fight their natural temperament. Good luck!

Edited to add: You didn't elaborate too much on what you think makes your dd "demanding." I don't think tantrums in a child this age are anything out of the ordinary! Your mellow first child may have been the unusual one!
