    One thought on “Nurture by Nature: How to Raise Happy, Healthy, Responsible Children Through the Insights of Personality Type”

    1. This book takes the Myers Briggs Type Indicator and applies it to parenting. The book is supposed to help parents identify their child's personality type, so that they can then parent them in a way that best suits the child's needs as well as the parents'.I like the fact that the book shows that children are individuals, and that a one size fits all approach to parenting tends not to work. The book could really give a parent insight into a child who is vey different from the way the parent is (s [...]

    2. We have really enjoyed reading this book. My husband has been taking it to work and reading it on his breaks so I haven't finished it yet, but I like what I have read so far.This book aims at helping parents understand the differences in each child and their similarities, how to effectively discipline and teach each child important lessons based on their personality type, and their way of learning and taking in information. As a parent you can gain greater insight on what inspires each child, wh [...]

    3. I loved this book! It was so fascinating to me to find my children's personality types and to understand more why they do the things they do. It helped me to understand why it takes 20 minutes for Jayden to get dressed, why he is such a picky eater, and why Ashlyn pushes all limits. It really has helped me to instead of automatically get after them, to step back and realize they are not just trying to make me mad and be naughty, it's just part of who they are and their individual learning proces [...]

    4. This book really is great! I can tell I already have more patience with my kids because I understand their motivations better. I also can see that it's ok not to parent my kids exactly the samee what works for one doesn't work as well for the other. It was funny to read my husband his type. It was very accurate. I highly recommend that every person, especially every parent, read this book!

    5. This book is really helpful in helping to understand children's personality types and to parent them with these personality types in mind. I have come back to it repeatedly to better understand my kids, to see their strengths and tendencies, and to be reminded of parenting strategies for their types.

    6. Great parenting tool to use when your children are so different from you. It helped me understand why my kids did things that made no sense to me at all.

    7. Parenting can be hard. Children are born with unique personalities and temperaments. This book helps you identify your children's personality type (and yours too!) and temperament so it can help give you "the power to understand why children are the way they are - and to become the best parent you can be." Who doesn't want to be the best parent they can be!? Lots of great insight! My kids have very different personalities so this helped me understand how it is okay and important to use different [...]

    8. This may be the most helpful parenting book I’ve ever read because it has helped me understand my children better. It is based on the Myers-Briggs temperament typing system and it’ was what I needed at the time - I also find myself rereading sections as needed. The authors do make applications sometimes that I do not agree with, but I still have it 5 stars bc it has helped me so much!

    9. I found this book to be fascinating even though I do not have children. I appreciated how it gave an in depth look at personality type and how it shows up in children. I also appreciated the overall values of acceptance and love that filled each type chapter. I felt it helped me to better understand myself and others and have more compassion for both myself and others.

    10. Not my favoriteThis was not my favorite book on parenting children. I would have liked something more geared towards toddlers. The target age is 4 in this book.

    11. This book won't be for everyone and I didn't agree with some of the general parents tips, but for someone who struggles to find parenting books helpful instead of shaming and as a long time MBTI enthusiast this was SO GOOD. It took all my concerns and frustrations with my 2 1/2 year old live wire and helped me understand where I was misunderstanding him and wonderful tips to help me direct his strengths and minimize his weaknesses. So so encouraging.

    12. Scary good! Hits the hammer on the head when it comes to understanding your child's personality type. It also helped me understand my spouse better and why my girls seem to fight endlessly--they are truly exact opposites. My family's types (can't wait to see what Mr. O is):Kyle is ESTJ: "Friendly, outgoing, and confident Like to be around, and in charge of, lots of people Hold strong opinions about right and wrong Like to make things happen Realistic and literal"I'm ISTJ: "Quiet, thoughtful, and [...]

    13. Nurture by Nature ranks as one of the all-time most helpful parenting books I’ve ever read. The book begins with the premise that many (not all, but many) parenting issues are actually rooted in how we relate to our kids. In other words, the problem is not always what is happening but how it is going down. By understanding our own temperaments and the different temperaments our children possess, we can overcome many misunderstandings of motive and intent, and parent our child in the way that i [...]

    14. Nurture by Nature is not a traditional parenting book in that it doesn't recommend a specific style. Rather, it recommends individualizing your own parenting style based on the personality of your child. The book covers the Myers Briggs personality assessment and applies it to children, giving recommendations on how to best tailor your parenting for the given type.I liked this book because it espouses my own parenting philosophy - that it should be tailored based on your child's own unique perso [...]

    15. Since I don't own this book right now I want to keep a record of my notes for future reference. I thought it was really interesting to type mine and my children's personalities. It answered some questions I had in mind in how to deal with certain situations I saw rising in our family. Here are my notes:*Preston is an ESTJ, a traditionalist with his lead thinking*Eliza is an ESFP (although she is still pretty young and this could possibly change. It really seemed to fit her though), and experienc [...]

    16. This book was so entertaining! I found myself laughing out loud a few times as some of the descriptions of certain personality types were so spot on for my daughter. Coming from a family with very different personalities among each member, I have definitely learned that understanding the natural tendencies of each person can be so helpful to maintaining a positive relationship. It is too easy to lose patience and cast judgement/blame when you lack understanding of the traits that are hard wired [...]

    17. I'm pretty sure I remember reading this book as a teenager, wanting to know what it said about teenage me. Now I'm reading it as an adult, wanting to know what it says about my child. I read it front-to-back, reading the full description of every one of the sixteen types, just because.I learned that my daughter is, I'm pretty sure, an INFJ, because that description of a preschool-aged INFJ is comically her. It's like someone has been doing undercover surveillance in my home. I think I've lucked [...]

    18. This was more helpful for understanding my husband and myself than my kids, as both my husband and I have take a 16 personality type test and our kids have not. I had to guess, with guidance from the authors, what my kids types were. After "typing" them all, I read the corresponding information. Some of it was true but most was not. I think this is because what the authors said is true, sometimes you can predict a child's type at age four and sometimes not until later. My kids fall on the later [...]

    19. This books uses the Meyer-Briggs personality indicators and applies them to children from birth to adolescence. For each of the personality types there is advice on how to deal with potential difficulties and also a summary page.The book does not use a questionnaire to help identify the types but describes each of the four opposing aspects that make up a type: extroversion/introversion, sensing/intuiting, judging/perceiving, feeling/thinking. From each of these description, you chose the charact [...]

    20. I had studied the Meyers-Briggs as part of a psychology course and I view it as a fanastic guideline and a tool for working towards a better understanding of differences, rather than anything set in stone. When I told my partner about it (pre-children) it made a lot of sense to him too, and it actually helped us understand one another better. So I already had a rough idea before purchasing this book which personality types my children would be, and this confirmed my instincts. It also gave me so [...]

    21. Every parent should read this book. It is a clear, practical, and uplifting exploration of how to use the Myers-Briggs personality type system first to better understand your child (and yourself) and then to find more effective ways to communicate, teach, and discipline. It will probably make your relationship with your child much better and foster more mutual understanding, respect, and appreciation. It was quite helpful to me when my own kids were teenagers (although it would have been even be [...]

    22. I read this book when my son was 6 and I was already struggling with our relationship. This book helped me understand why he was the way he was and helped me find ways to relate to him better. It even included ideal disciplinary tactics! Shortly after he was identified as gifted, which was the final piece of the puzzle with him. This book made me feel better as a parent!My biggest complaint is that while it did help identify my daughter's personality, it gave very little advice for how to deal w [...]

    23. My kids have been perplexing me this year and while I have always known they needed different things, I have hit a road block a few times recently in figuring out what exactly what it is that I can do to help them. While sorting and organizing some old work files, I ran across my own Meyers Briggs from my pre kid days and figured if it can work to help me understand coworkers, surely it may help with these not-so-little-anymore people.Just in the first half I have had some terrific insight into [...]

    24. Interesting book. It gives specific examples so you can figure out what "personality" your child (and you) have and lets you know the ways you should deal with that personality at different ages. For example, my child is a ISTJ (Introvert, Sensor, Thinking, Judging) which means he needs clear and logical reasons for things, praise for accomplishments, time alone to renew his energy, time to adjust to new situations, etc. Quote from the book:There are four components that make up a person's perso [...]

    25. I like this one. It breaks down the Meyers-Briggs categorization of traits into simple, bite-size portions and each personality type is afforded respect. It was easy to identify my child's personality type, and the two of us read about him, and about how I should best relate to him and guide him. He found it interesting to recognize himself on the page and he takes pride in his traits.I took the MB test years ago and discovered that the chapter about my type still suits me. If only I'd been more [...]

    26. Love it! It's the Myers-Briggs for kids! OK, my child is only a year old (too little to really tell), but I can already see her as being ENTJ . . . or at least E and T. The description of me (ESTJ) was spot on, and true to form, I didn't quite understand the INTJ description -- that of my husband. :) You intuitive people speak in riddles sometimes, I swear. I just. don't. get. it.Anyway, I probably loved this because my personality type loves personality typing, and putting everyone into neat li [...]

    27. I recommend this book to ALL parents! It will help you understand your child's individual personality type and why they do the things they do, say the things they say, and think the way they do, which may be very different from what you do. I have kids with very different personalities and now I really understand better what I can do for each of them to help develop their individual abilities and take advantage of their talents. I wish I had run across this year a couple of years ago, it's a won [...]

    28. I thought this book was pretty on spot with some of it's descriptions (I only read the few that applied or that I thought applied) and it helps to know your child's motivations and paradigm when understanding their behavior. Thankfully everyone in my house appears to be an ISTJ except one ISFJ, which means it's easier to be on the same wavelength on things sometimes or at least figure out where my children are coming from and how to meet them in the middle!
