Parenting the Ephraim's Child:
Characteristics, capabilities, and challenges of children who are intensely MORE

Deborah Talmadge and Jaime Theler
Horizon (Cedar Fort, Inc.), November 2004


Have you ever read a parenting book and thought:

 My child doesn't fit this description.
 None of these techniques seem to work.
Why is my child so high maintenance?

You may unknowingly have an Ephraim's Child.

What is an Ephraim's Child?

Like those of the tribe of Ephraim, an Ephraim's Child has great determination, energy, and a headstrong will. Ephraim's Children are also often high maintenance, emotional, controlling, and aggravating. What other sources don't tell you is that these children are a special and covenant people. As Hyrum G. Smith declared, "Today is the day of Ephraim." These are the children of the final days when strength of character will be so crucial.

Parenting the Ephraim's Child: Characteristics, capabilities, and challenges of children who are intensely MORE examines the nine common characteristics with examples and real life stories to explain how each trait contributes to the challenge of raising an Ephraim's Child. Parents can understand and work with these temperamental traits, and then see how each is actually a strength in need of refinement. The scriptures and words of modern prophets are used extensively along with secular sources of wisdom to demonstrate how these qualities can be valuable tools in the Lord's hands. Ephraim's Children can be valiant in building the kingdom of God because of their characteristics, not despite them.
