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 thought a lot of the book gave good value. Just like any book it offers an opinion and you need to gather your own. A lot of the examples I think may work but also may not work so it is important not to give up trying. Over all listening to adult parenting books I find helpful just to give you different aspect of how to deal with issues you may be dealing with on a day to day life. Also I found this could be helpful with adults
When new parents are going thru birthing classes, they should be receiving this book as guide to parenting. Because learning to be a parent is not just to know how to behave and react in the delivery room, it's a lifetime of knowing how to help your child to be respectful and self confident in a strange world, to know how to become a great adult.
This book really helped me learn how to understand my kids a little better and speak to them in a way that relays that I understand how they are feeling and I respect them as individuals. I have only read this book this weekend and started using some of the tips and have already noticed an improvement with my children's behavior. I plan to read it at least one more time to really heed the information they provide.
