  • "Finally - advice that works for har..."

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    The advice in this book is the only advice I've gotten from a parenting book (and I've read quite a few) that has been effective almost from the moment I started to try it out with my strong-willed daughter.

    It espouses, among other things, time-outs and natural consequences which are frowned upon by the more modern books I've read. But it stresses that this type of discipline must NOT be meted out in a punitive, angry, or mean-spirited way. And that, I believe, keeps this kind of effective discipline from crossing the line into cruelty.

    I HIGHLY recommend this book if you have a strong-willed child. But do read other, newer books that set out very different but still very valuable approaches. No one book has all the answers or the one right approach, but this one works both well and fairly quickly with the kids who are less naturally compliant.

    Note that it's approach might be a bit over-the-top for compliant children. Still, meaning what you say and using less words with compliant children probably won't hurt...

    Story

    This was a great book. It suggests a very caring and appealing parenting approach and the author's logic is hard to disagree with.

    I have already strengthened the relationship I have with my son using this author's advice and that to me is a priceless reward for buying "Parenting Without Power Struggles". My only quibble is that while the advice in this book will probably work with less compliant, stronger-willed children like my daughter, it seemed to me that it would take a long time to have the effect I needed to happen ASAP.

    I found "Setting Limits With Your Strong-Willed Child" worked quickly and effectively for my hard-case daughter, who was starting to drive me crazy. But, if I also follow the "Parenting Without Power Struggles" approach, I am sure that will deepen my relationship with her over the long-term. So, I'd recommend both books and both approaches, despite this author's distaste for time-outs and consequences.

    While most parenting programs are designed to coerce kids to change, Parenting Without Power Struggles does something innovative, showing you how to help your children awaken their natural instincts to cooperate, rather than employing threats or bribes, which inevitably fuels their resistance. By staying calm and being the confident "captain of the ship" your child needs, you will learn how to parent from a place of strong, durable connection, and you'll be better able to help your kids navigate the challenging moments of growing up.

    This is simply the most practical and helpful parenting book I've listened to so far. P.E.T and How to Talk So Kids Will Listen... are great, but this one is now my favourite by far.

    It had really and truly helped me understand and connect better with my kids and to reduce the level of discord I was unintentionally generating. I am currently listening to it a second time.

    The narration is perfect, and I don't use that term lightly.

    I HIGHLY recommend this audio book.

Diane's greatest hits:
  • The Secret Life of the Grown-Up Brain: The Surprising Talents of the Middle-Aged Mind

    "Lightweight and repetitive"

    Overall

    This book contains some interesting ideas, but they are repeated ad nauseam. Okay, okay! Even my middle-aged brain has got the point. Please move on. This would have been better as a magazine piece.

  • Far from the Tree: Parents, Children and the Search for Identity

    "A Masterpiece!"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    “Far from the Tree” is so much more than promised by the title. It consists of twelve distinct, fascinating and perspective-changing chapters that weave into a cohesive story of love and resilience. The author performs flawlessly, not so much because he is a professional narrator, but because this story is told from his heart.

    Before listening to this book I questioned whether or not I would be able to sustain interest for 40 hours, but as soon as it started I was hooked. Hours flew by like minutes and I devoured this book until the very end.

  • Dad Is Fat

    "Yawn"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    This is a cautionary tale about pro-creating beyond one’s means. The author describes the mundane life of raising five young children. It’s mostly boring, at times depressing, and not funny.

  • NurtureShock: New Thinking About Children

    "Worth a listen"

    Overall

    While this book doesn't answer all questions about child-rearing, and even raises a few, it provides ample eye-opening and useful information. I am considering buying the paper version to keep as a reference. My main criticism of the audiobook is that the narrator tends to put emphasis on the wrong words, which is odd since he is the coauthor.

  • "a funny look at raising children"

    4 of 7 helpful votes

    I enjoyed this book. Sometimes it did fall into a story solely about her family and events, but the author did a good job of using those events to remind us that sometimes the chaos of family is what makes our family ours. I definitely laughed out loud a couple times and found myself tearing up. I was a little offended by the use of the f word, but expected some vulgarity because of the title. Overall, satisfied with this purchase.

    While other books tell you what dyslexia is, this book tells you what to do. Dyslexics' innate skills, which may include verbal, social, spatial, kinesthetic, visual, mathematical, or musical abilities, are their unique key to acquiring knowledge. Figuring out where their individual strengths lie, and then harnessing these skills, offers an entrée into learning and excelling. And by keeping the focus on learning, not on standard reading the same way everyone else does, a child with dyslexia can and will develop the self-confidence to flourish in the classroom and beyond.

Drug therapies, our understanding of the role of diet and exercise, even the way we define the disorder, all are changing radically. And doctors are realizing that millions of adults suffer from this condition, though the vast majority of them remain undiagnosed and untreated.

    The story we usually tell about childhood and success is the one about intelligence: Success comes to those who score highest on tests, from preschool admissions to SATs. But in How Children Succeed, Paul Tough argues for a very different understanding of what makes a successful child. Drawing on groundbreaking research in neuroscience, economics, and psychology, Tough shows that the qualities that matter most have less to do with IQ and more to do with character: skills like grit, curiosity, conscientiousness, and optimism.
