"Will bring about more cooperation from children than all the yelling and pleading in the world." (Christian Science Monitor)
"An excellent book that’s applicable to any relationship." (Washington Post)
"Practical, sensible, lucid… the approaches Faber and Mazlish lay out are so logical you wonder why you read them with such a burst of discovery." (Family Journal)
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.
This is an amazing necessity for all parents and even no parents who engage in conversation with anyone! It is a life changer on how we should be with ourselves and others.
This book is the most comprehensive, detailed, and factual book on communication I have listened to. It is a must if you deal with kids, and many adult situations.
This book is similar to "crucial conversations", but more comprehensive and targeting children.
A great alternate book for 'controlling' conversations (for adults) is 'pitch anything'.
I am an analytical person, these books break down the art of communication into a science, empowering the reader to take action.

It is a very parent centric approach to parenting rather than child centric. It helped me as a parent feel justified and validated but it really didn't help the communication with my children
It goes beyond how to speak so your children will listen and how to listen so your children will speak. It teaches us how to communicate with respect and still be honest with how we are feeling
Brilliant. I am listening to it again just absorb it a little more. It is a virtual tool box for raising healthy, happy children. Read this book first. And I love all the letters from parents, it lets me know I am not alone.
This book literally changed the way I talk (and listen) to my children and our lives are all better for it. Before reading I felt stuck in an endless loop of talking without being heard, getting frustrated and repeating the same cycle over and over again. The simple and easy to understand tools in this book allowed me to break out of the cycle and the difference was immediate. I feel empowered and more connected than ever to both of my children aged 3 and 5. My husband is listening to the book now as well and I plan to play it again as a reminder if I fall back into old habits. I highly recommend reading to all parents!
My children are all grown up however, I now teach children's ministry. I know that what I've learned in this book will help me tremendously. Thank you
This audio book is an absolute revelation. the techniques described can be used in Business, marriage, and with family.
