    Important Notes:

    1.  Information in "quotes" is quoted directly from the actual web page.  It has been included here for INFORMATIONAL PURPOSES ONLY to give you a better idea of what that site has to offer.

    2.  Links open a new browser window, they do not change the page in this window.  When you're done reading, simply close the new window.

    3.  Please remember......YOU are the only true "experts" when it comes to knowing your child.  Not all the information you read about raising spirited children will "feel right" to you, not all will match with your families values and beliefs.   Take what is useful, nurture your own instincts, and FOLLOW YOUR HEART!
