Books That Made a Difference to Rachel Griffiths
The Out-of-Sync Child
By Carol Stock Kranowitz
This book examines how people take in and process information differently. I read it seeking certain answers about my own child's behavior. It was a revelation. It helped me to understand the interplay between nature and nurture, myself, my husband, and so many people in my family. I grew up with the idea that everything we are is a response to what was done to us. But this explained why one child in a family can shove extraordinary amounts of broccoli into her mouth and won't eat soup or anything smooth, and why another child is so sensitive orally that he can't eat anything with texture. It showed me that so many preferences we believe to be intellectually driven have nothing to do with what we think but rather with what we feel.
