It's easy to recognize a strong-willed child. Difficult to discipline, at times impossible to motivate, strong-willed children present unique, frustrating, and often exhausting challenges to those who care for them. But now, the miracle parents long for can happen. Offering new hope, achievable goals, and a breath of fresh air to families and teachers, Cynthia Tobias explains how the mind of a strong-willed child works - and how to use that information to the child's best advantage.

Very helpful book. Highly recommend it.

Neither Me nor my husband are strong willed (we think). So before this book, we really don't know and don't understand why our son is like this, his sister isn't like him either. This book said it best: sometimes he would rather die, than do what we say.

So after the book, we some what understand how he operates. He still get stuck some time, but at least we understand where he is coming from, and where he is going. we did the self evaluation and was relieved to know that he is in the middle of his strong willedness.

People are not machines with buttons. The book has some good suggestions. I now know not to press too hard, but give him options, space and time to come around.

This book has some good ideas but in th end she says that nothing will work without the help of God. For me this pretty much made the book useless.
