for parenting. I've read the whole Babywise series, Parenting with Love and Logic, 5 Love Languages for Children, Assertive Discipline for Parents, Bringing Up Bebe, and maybe more, but this books seems to be the most practical with lots and lots of examples and scripts. I liked this book so much because the scripts really help you understand, imagine, and practice the concepts discussed. Very practical. I will be buying the print version as well to refer back to often.
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.
Non-fiction fan! Bring on the self-improvement, business, sales & marketing books!
Helpful, helpful, helpful!
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!
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. :)
I have listened to this book over & over again these last few weeks and i am so grateful to have finally found a book that works. Thank-you audible for having this excellent, well written book in your audio library!
