Communication aid for a happier home!

This is a parenting book NOT JUST about how to talk and listen respectfully with your children. It is also about problem-solving together and ultimately about getting away from "no" and power struggles with your children. I admit, I bought it hoping for an "obedience manual" in how to get my children to do what I say. This book does that (kind of) but is much more than that as well. The first section is on "engaging your child's cooperation" and before I was finished the first chapter I was trying out the techniques - and getting more cooperation than I'd ever had before! The next chapter is about "instead of punishment" and offers alternatives which teach children how to take responsibility for their own choices, and teaches them to clean up and make amends when things go wrong. All the chapters are useful and very clear - I found I could use the skills immediately after reading the chapter (although more practice will certainly help as well). I liked the chapter on "praise" which is about moving away from non-specific "great" type comments and praising so that the child learns to appreciate their own work - ultimately making them independent of praise from adults and others. So, even more than eliminating power struggles between parents and children, and even more than creating a harmonious home (which this book also does) it shows parents how to raise children into independent, responsible, thoughtful and empathic people. I'm pretty sure this is the last parenting book I'll ever need. Except that I'm buying another copy to loan out!show more
