8 Keys to Raising the Quirky Child Summary

8 Keys to Raising the Quirky Child: How to Help a Kid Who Doesn't (Quite) Fit In by Mark Bowers

A quirky child experiences difficulty fitting in and connecting with others usually due to an interpersonal style or behaviour that stands out from other children. Maybe they are obsessed with a topic of interest or spend excessive hours a day reading, playing video games or playing with just one toy. These children are not so far afield as to fall on the autism spectrum but they are unique and their behaviour is not addressed in typical parenting books.

This book defines quirky markers and offers strategies for parents to understand their children's brains and behaviour; to know what is developmentally appropriate and what isn't; to understand how to reach their kids; and to help facilitate their social functioning in the world.

It will calm the hearts and minds of parents who worry that their child doesn't fit in and offer hope to parents who need strategies to support their quirky child's overall development.

8 Keys to Raising the Quirky Child Reviews

"There is no black and white dividing line between geeks, nerds, and the quirky, and mild autism or Asperger's. A few autistic traits can provide advantages-too many, a handicap. Albert Einstein, Steve Jobs, and many famous musicians, if they were born today, might well receive an "autism" label in today's school system. Some kids are just quirky, and Eight Keys to Raising a Quirky Child will help those children succeed." -- Temple Grandin, author of The Autistic Brain and Thinking in Pictures
