“Sharon’s methods work flaw-lessly.” (Derick Miller, President, Berkeley, Calif., PTA Council)
“I believe this is the most powerful structure I’ve learned in my training as a marriage and family therapist.” (Bette Acuff, Ph.D., M.A.)
The author gives realistic examples of ways to respond to your child that encourage the child to make good choices, and even if he doesn't make the choice we prefer, the concequence is clear, making the child accountable for his choices. The advice she gives is simple, clear, logical, and easy to apply. I listened to the book 3 times, I got so much out of it. I have been using the conversation techniques not only with my teenage son, but in other situations as well. I highly recommend this book. The author's speaking style may be irritating if you want an exciting voice with huge inflection, but I think the message she builds on requires a calm demeanor and encourages calmness in the listener.
"Taking Power Struggle Out of Parenting"
The only self-help Audio book that I've listened more than once and keep going back to it.
It has been useful in communications with people in general, but most of all with my two children.
Also parents who have a hard time saying "No" will especially find it helpful.
The 'Taking Power Struggle Out of Parenting' will be my companion for some years to come.
