    1. This book was very long and boring, I thought it should have been half as long. But it was extremely helpful and informative. It was one of the few helpful parenting books in my opinion, and I've read a lot of parenting books. It has five different personalities, and explains how to help those personalities become more well-adjusted. It was great to read because it turns out my daughter is Highly Sensitive child, and boy is she hard to care for because everything results in screaming. We can do [...]

    2. This book was very helpful. While my own child didn't fit most of the 'types' laid out in this book, I could see elements of his strong personality in some of the types. What made this book so helpful was the way Greenspan used a case study for each type, laying out specifics of how he encouraged the parents to work with the child to change behaviors. From that I could glean a lot of tips to use with my own son. He was very direct yet encouraging and offered reassurance that your challenging chi [...]

    3. Greenspan is one of my heroes. He's done some amazing, groundbreaking work on autism and PDDs, and this book is a remarkable guide to understanding kids who might not get a diagnosis, or may get many conflicting diagnoses. He has such a human approach to kids that others have often wanted to treat as rats to be trained with the right system of rewards and punishments. How can you go wrong with a guy who suggests that humor is a crucial tool to work with explosive kids? He has boundless empathy n [...]

    4. Even though I couldn't fit my (current) difficult child into any of his groupings I found it helpful to reframe the entire situation as a "teaching moment". Which I suppose was in itself worth the read. And I'll admit my perfectly typecast "Sensitive child" was hit right on, and I wish I had read it when I was still learning to navigate HIM. I'll suggest if you have a kiddo that you feel will really fit one of these 5 types, but if you have a kinda innatentive, kinda over-active, kinda defiant c [...]

    5. "As we grow with our children through the daily trials, tribulations, joys, and pleasures of life, we can only make one simple demand of ourselves: to learn from our experiences. We need to recognize that our powerful emotions, which are the basis of many of our mistakes, are, at the same time, also the foundation of our triumphs."

    6. I found this book annoying. First off, I just didn't like the types. My child didn't fit into any of the types, and I found the categories to be a bit simplistic. If you read my book or my reviews, you'll realize that my child had some learning differences and was a classic "spiky profile" kid (some very high scores and some very low scores) when tested. Kids like that often slip through the cracks (ridiculously enough), and find themselves without learning support, and without the ability to ac [...]

    7. I'd borrowed this book from the library in hopes that it will be applicable to my work scope as a teacher, and I wasn't disappointed. I tried out some tactics on a passive/aggressive student and he's now slowly opening up his heart to me. It is an amazing and helpful book; I strongly encourage parents/parents-to-be/teachers to give this book a try :)

    8. Practical, helpful, and encouraging! This book helps you understand your child's difficult behavior and gives concrete suggestions on changing your own parenting behaviors to provide a nurturing, healing environment. First come to understand the behavior and what message the child is trying to convey. Only then will you know how to proceed.

    9. I found this an immensely helpful book to read for work, although it's aimed more at parents than teachers. I wish a knew a paediatrician as thoughtful and thorough as this man to refer to in Melbourne! His recommendations for floor work with both parents and the child were very illuminating.

    10. The Challenging Child: Understanding, Raising, and Enjoying the Five "Difficult" Types of Children by Stanley I. Greenspan (1996)

    11. Attributes most behaviors to the sensory way the child experiences the world. Good suggestions for play and discipline.

    12. Wish I could find a therapist like him in Virginia. Becoming desperate. But this provided specific and useful information and insight that will definitely be applied in my household.
