The book offers an introductory section followed by a section on different types of children. Not that they're stereotyping children, but that there are several behaviors that fit together into different descriptions lumped together in chapters that address those concerns. Sine of the chapters are:
- The Vulnerable Child
- The Intimidating Child
- The Short Fused Child
- The Little Adult
- The Sensitive Soul
- The Different Drummer
- The Born Leader
I want me children to be unique and be themselves, but I also need them to be able to navigate socially and through society in a manner that allows successful interactions for all parties. I want to help them.
There are things Keith and I still need to teach them. Even if when we choose to go against the norm, we need to know what the norm is and why we're doing it. Keith even read a chapter or two that I suggested to review.
I felt better knowing there are other kids out there like mine. And picking up a few things I can teach the kids. I'm keeping the book handy for a little while to refer to as things come up to help teach.
