New Strong-willed Child, by Dr. James Dobson


  • "Strong-willed children often possess remarkable qualities of leadership and determination, which, when properly nurtured, can lead to great success in life."
  • "Parenting a strong-willed child is not about breaking their spirit, but guiding their energy towards positive outcomes."
  • "The key to parenting a strong-willed child lies in finding the balance between firmness and empathy, setting boundaries while remaining emotionally connected."
  • "Understanding the underlying motivations and needs of strong-willed children is essential for effective discipline and communication."
  • "Parenting a strong-willed child is a journey of growth and learning for both parent and child, requiring patience, resilience, and unconditional love."

Top 5 Tips:

  • 1. Choose your battles wisely, focusing on essential issues and being flexible on less critical matters.
  • 2. Stay calm and composed during conflicts, modeling emotional regulation and problem-solving skills for your child.
  • 3. Offer choices whenever possible to empower your strong-willed child and encourage cooperation.
  • 4. Seek support from other parents or professionals who have experience with strong-willed children, gaining insights and strategies for managing challenging behaviors.
  • 5. Celebrate and affirm your child's strengths and accomplishments regularly, building their self-esteem and confidence.
