The Dance of Interaction - A Guide to Managing Children's Challenging Behaviors by Jeanine Fitzgerald. As a licensed, professional therapist, her purpose for writing this book was simple - to share some child development theory and many experiences that will empower you to become an unforgettable, positive influence in the life of every child you touch, even those whose behaviors you find disturbing, frustrating or challenging. The power of influence in the lives of others cannot be measured in dollars and cents. It is measured in love.
