    "Actionable!!!"
    If you could sum up How to Talk So Kids Will Listen & Listen So Kids Will Talk in three words, what would they be?

    Helpful, helpful, helpful!


    Any additional comments?

    This book is full of very positive ways to act and respond to children in ways that allow them to work through things, not just lash out. I felt like I was listening for a bit and gaining some insight, then using the information at home. I started writing notes to the kids and it was stellar - even for a younger brother who can't read! Great book and performance! I really didn't want this book to end!

    "If You Read Only 1 Parenting Book........"

    Make it this one! I have four kiddos ages 5 to 14 and I have read many parenting books over the years. The ideas contained in this book are so very important. I have seen it work wonders in my family. :)
