Publisher's Summary

Parents and kids pitted against one another, opposing forces pulling in different directions, both determined to win!

In Kids, Parents, and Power Struggles, Mary Sheedy Kurcinka presents real strategies for getting to the root of the emotions and needs that can create daily hassles. But power struggles aren't just about winning and losing. They provide rich opportunities for learning how to deal with strong emotions and for parents and children to solve problems together.

    "Great Book!"

    This is a great book & highly recommended. It really helps to put into perspective how children don't know what to do with the strong emotions they all have and helps you help your child. Once you understand your childs emotions & can help them to understand them, you will greatly reduce power struggles as well as general conflict. I recommend this book to all my friends.

    "Emotional Coaching"

    This is a practical book with good lessons that can be put to immediate use.

    I particularly liked the chapters on recognizing temperaments and personality styles. This book changed how I view power struggles in general and reinforced my parenting communication goals.

    I will listen to this again.
