I've got two little ones - My 4 year old has been spirited since the day he arrived. We are really in a tough place right now and are a little afraid that he might get kicked out of pre-school. He's "making it difficult for the other children to learn" according to his teachers. He's a little energy ball that doesn't like to follow directions which I know will be hard down the line. Luckily my mom is a school psychologist and she's giving me some ideas on how to help his teachers and him deal with learing to be a good student.
My little girl I sometimes feel like she doesn't get the attention she deserves (she's 18 months right now) b/c her big brother commands our attention. My husband and I have read "Rasing your Spirited Child" and it is our boy to a T and may be his sister as well - just in a quieter way.
Just wanted to say hi to you mom's of "spirited" little ones.
