Raising Your Spirited Child

So it's Friday already! Only 9 more days until we leave for Disney, yay! But the time is going to fly by - lots of stuff to do in the upcoming week - we really need to start packing now! Any advice on traveling on a plane with 2 children? Any help would be appreciated!

So this past week I finished reading Raising Your Spirited Child by Mary Sheedy Kurcinka. I highly recommend this book to anyone who has a child that can be "difficult". The best part of the books for me was realizing everyone has a different temperament and the way they naturally react to situations can be different than yours. This really helps you put yourself in someone elses shoes and realize sometimes they aren't reacting in a way to try and tick you off, it's just their natural response. The book was also great in making you realize how important positive words are when describing your child. Instead of difficult you can use determined or some other word that sounds better. The book also helped me realize why I react to certain things in some ways and helped me realize steps I can take for me and Connor to make life easier. Now onto the next books - The Hunger Games Series.
