Yes, it was easy to listen to and easy to apply to my current situation
The clear concepts
Susan Bennett has a very soothing and accurate voice. I purchased another book, just because she was narrating it.
Unlike other parenting books, these techniques could be applied instantly to everyday situations. This is a recommended reading or listening material for any parent who wants a closer relationship with their child.
I could benefit from notes accompanying the book. I don't think I will purchase the book, but given a choice, I would go with the book so that I could refer to it easily.
Talk of punishment, how it works and doesn't work.
Every parent should read this book. Parenting is the hardest job I've ever had and Adele Faber and Elaine Mazlish provide some extraordinarily helpful insights and approaches that actually work.
I have had less success applying the concepts in this book to my strong-willed daughter than to my easy-going son. This may be my fault, of course, as I may not be applying the concepts properly. Time to re-read and see.
I've read many books on parenting, but some are very difficult to absorb and implement the suggestions. This book has clear roadmap to follow. I liked the last chapter where all strategies and tactics were recapped. Planning on listening again, to make sure everything sunk in :)
it works! I've applied these techniques several times while listening to this book. I'm thankful for it and so are my kids (unknowingly; of course).
This is even helpful for communication with childish adults. It's really about understanding how your own speech affects your ability to communicate with others and how kids tend to interpret our words.
Absolutely loved it! Greatfull for all the lessons and clever perspective. A most read for all parents with children and young adults of all ages and types of relationships.
I love it, working as an au pair ask me work with the kids most of the time. Before this book, I often get trouble with dicipline my host kids. but now, everything get much easier, I keep practicing what I got from this book and the relationship between me and my host kids get better a lot. highly recommend for this book
