    Just a question, I am not a parent, I am a face-painter though and work with children on a regular base. How can i find out in about 2 seconds which type a child is?? It would make it so much easier to work with them even more swiftly 😉

    I am about to order Just my nature, which is your only book available about this in Holland.

    So my type-3 some is 3.5 and we are having our struggles with potty training. He refuses to go potty, even though he has done it a few times. He likes to flush the toilet, and all those other stages of knowing when a child is ready except he REFUSES to learn. He is definitly swift and determined in everything he does. I am trying really hard to not get in power struggles with him, but somedays, especially in the store, it can get really difficult. So I am looking for some tips on how to potty train my son who is so determined that we end up giving in. I am a type 2 with a type 4 husband. This whole process has my husband stepping out of the whole process because he can’t handle it or given up because our son is not meeting his expectation.
