Do You Really Know Your Child? And Do You Really Know Yourself?

Both of these things are important. You can’t be successful at child rearing if you don’t know both things. The most helpful theory I have found has been Carol Tuttle’s book, The Child Whisperer. I actually got started reading Carol Tuttle’s book after I became acquainted with her system of dressing oneself according to your energy type.

It took me a while to understand Dressing Your Truth and initially I picked the wrong type; but after reading the Child Whisperer, I became more confident with my current choice, Type 3. I had initially chosen type 1, which I now have realized was my secondary type, not my primary type. I really knew that I had made the right choice when I started getting unexpected compliments from strangers in type 3 clothes and accessories. I knew that type 1 was not my type when I saw a picture of myself in a type 1 top that I had chosen because it was advertised as type 1 in the Dressing Your Truth store which was open at that time. Also, please note there is now information for men about all 4 types.

The Child Whisperer has information about all four types of children and has information about all four types of parents. It very clearly explains how these various types of children can interact and how mistakes can easily be made in understanding each other and in interacting with each other because the requirements of each type of child at different stages fit with different types of parents both positively and negatively. Thus you have four possible types of children and four possible types of parents. Add to that that there are two parents and they can be different from each other and then once the parents get used to how their possibly different styles of parenting interact with this type of child, they might go on to having more children who might not be the same type.

The book, The Child Whisperer, goes into all the different combinations as well as explaining how each different type of child might be like at different stages and how to recognize them and how different styles of parenting are like with each energy type. However, I would recommend that you should become acquainted with each energy type first which is easier for women as the Dressing Your Truth system was first started as being for women. There are now materials for men. Once you find your energy type (and this is true for both men and women), you will find yourself being more comfortable in your clothes and more confident about your appearance.

The Dressing Your Truth System is available online. There is material there to help you determine your type and material that tells you what each type is like. There is an earlier book and a more recent book. They tell you how to identify each type and how each type is characterized. For example,I am “Fire” when I initially thought I was “Air”; but my personal nicknames have always been “Wildcat’ and “Wildfire” although as a child I was always called, “Pumpkin” which curiously is one of the colors that is suggested for Type 3’s to wear.

Curiously, there are three colors that should only be worn by one of these types, they are pure white, gray, and black. Notice that these are usually presented as staples in one’s wardrobe. I have a family picture taken at a wedding where I was dressed in a black top and a black skirt. I looked terrible and the only thing that I can say about how I looked is that I looked, “huge” and you would ordinarily think that black would make you look smaller. Only type 4’s can get away with black (and pure white as far as that matters) and gray can only be worn by type 2’s. I assume that would be true for men too. I really have not read up on men yet.

Curious yet? I am going to publish this without all the relevant details just to get you interested and I will follow up with them in a week.
