The Temperaments and the Adult-Child Relationship

eBook (PDF), 239 Pages
(2 Ratings)
Price: $15.00
For teachers, parents and ALL adults that interact with children - this book is as comprehensive as a textbook but as readable as a novel. Through guides, examples, stories and lessons the reader learns how to type him/herself, family members, students, and friends and to delve into the mysteries of how the different temperaments interact with each other. Because these interactions are unique, depending on the age and relationship of the people, this book focuses only on the adult-child relationship which can differ greatly from the adult-adult relationship or the child-child relationship. However, while this book does focus on the relationships between adults and children, one can also benefit from reading the different sections and applying some of the wisdom to his/her own relationships with other adults or by extrapolating ideas from the sections to help siblings get along better.

    I consider this a must have book for every family! Understanding the four temperments and how we relate to one another is enlightening and guaranteed to bring much needed peace and understanding into our families and as a result, into the world in which we live. "The Temperments and the Adult-Child Relationship" is a culmination of over 16 years of in depth study and evaluation of this ancient practice. Kristie Burns brings it with a modern sensibility, making it a very enjoyable read from which one comes away with enlightenment and lots of those 'a-ha!' moments. Reading the section on Sanguine children was so helpful in allowing me to understand how my sanguine child thinks, moves, feels, processes, and exists. I kept nudging my husband to read him parts of it which were like a blueprint of my daughter. Now I recognize why she reacts as she does and am able to make adjustments that bring expansion to her soul and to mine. Being able to understand in advance how someone... More > might react is a very powerful tool in life. And what is more important than the relationships with our children. Whether you are a parent, educator, homeschooler, or after care giver, you will appreciate the wealth of knowledge and enlighenment which comes from this wonderful book!< Less

    I am homeschooling my choleric son. Reading the chapter about phlegmatic adults and the choleric child has really given me insight into our relationship. I understand where my son is coming from more clearly which is giving me more patience with his silliness when teaching. I can see that he is just trying to connect with me. I am also using the insights into his temperament to make our lessons more interesting for him and hold his attention. Thank you Kristie!
