"Our Family Testers found Personality Insights for Moms to be a delightful fun-filled book with
humorous anecdotes, graphics, and charts that truly helps moms learn how to replace power struggles, unrealistic expectations, and rebellion with better communication and improved parent-child relationships. It is especially helpful for moms that have a child with a totally opposite personality than herself and inspires understanding and appreciation for our children with different interests than our own. The best part is that it encourages us to identify the strengths of our children and to actually appreciate those differences. A true 'Adding Wisdom' treasure for every mom!"


REVIEWER: James A. Cox, Midwest Book Review (Oregon, WI)

"Personality Insights for Moms!: Decrease Conflict & Increase Happiness Today" by Certified Human Behavior Consultant Susan Crook, is a handy illustrated, 319 page text to help moms understand their offsprings' baffling behavior. "Personality Insights for Moms" also helps moms understand and use their own personality styles, understand their children's ability to communicate better, handle conflict, and offer appropriate discipline, (or D-I- S-Cipline). Motivation strategies for different personality styles are offered. "Personality Insights for Moms" is a humorous, accessible book that will help parents ready to throw in the towel to hang on and keep on trying. The handy little lists, charts, graphs, and tools are quite practical and visually appealing as well. Symbols allow compressed information to be presented and humorous cartoons help to make the point memorable. "Personality Insights for Moms" is a "must read" for parents and child caretakers.

REVIEWER: Amy Tice (Georgia)

I LOVED THIS BOOK! It was full of real-life examples, information, and illustrations that made it easy and fun to learn about the different personality styles. The author gave a variety of practical strategies that have already helped me communicate with and relate to others more effectively in everyday situations. It's a great "how to" book that any family can truly benefit from. I've already bought several copies for my family and friends, and HIGHLY recommend it!!!


REVIEWER: Donna Early

As a wife and mom of 5, I've been a student of temperaments for years. I've read excellent material on the topic. Susan Crook's presentation of the DISC personality styles is one of the most comprehensive, encouraging, and accurate books available. As parents we are to be students of our children, observing them, understanding their particular strengths and weaknesses, what motivates them or hinders their development. Studying temperament theories is such a practical means of accomplishing this goal. It's also fun, interesting, and exciting to recognize how our individual characteristics can contribute to our children's lives in beneficial ways and possible areas of conflict and ineffectiveness we need to be alert to. The understanding of temperament is not limited to family relationships but can easily become some of the most useful knowledge to apply in all our interactions with others. The insights you gain will be invaluable.



REVIEWER: Dianne E. Shantz

This book is absolutely wonderful! It's perfect for any mom of any age but it is especially helpful for moms that have a child with a totally different personality than themselves. It helped me to understand and appreciate my child that has a different energy level and different interests than my own. I have used the strategies for working with different personalities in my work place as well. It has really helped me to extend my patience for others knowing we are all created differently and more importantly, to value their strengths.
