Publisher's Summary

You've been there - feeling helpless, clueless, when a child you love totally bewilders you.

Maybe it's the tantrum at the store, or the hour-long bedtime battle, or the head-scratcher of getting your child to eat veggies. You wonder what on earth to do, so you get advice, read books, watch videos, ask the internet. And still, something's missing.

You need a plan that addresses your child's needs, not everyone else's. Why couldn't children come with a handbook?

Turns out, children are born with a handbook: they are the handbook.

In The Child Whisperer, best-selling author Carol Tuttle explains that children tell their parents every day exactly how they need to be parented. They tell their teachers exactly how they need to be taught. Children are trying to tell adults who they are so they can be recognized and treated in a way that honors them uniquely.

The Child Whisperer reveals that the key to raising happy, healthy, cooperative children lies in understanding and responding to a child's inner nature.

Children's true natures are written in the shape of their faces and expressed daily in their appearance, body language, tone of voice, and choice of words. Your child's unique laugh, cry, joys, worries, and even tantrums speak volumes about the type of parenting they need. And you'll learn exactly how to offer it by listening to The Child Whisperer.

This simple but unique approach actually makes parenting more intuitive, fun, cooperative, and most importantly customized to your individual child.

The Child Whisperer will give you the tools to:

  • Have a happier, more cooperative child, using less discipline
  • Foster more confidence and natural success in your child
  • Repair trouble parent/teen relationships
  • Reconnect with your adult children

The Child Whisperer teaches how to read unsaid clues that children naturally give every day, and shows how parenting, teaching, coaching, and mentoring children can be an even more intuitive, cooperative experience than ever.

Dry oratory

Excellent content. Exactly what I wanted to learned more about. Unfortunately for an audio book, the reading by Tuttle was pretty dry. I was surprised by this since I know she is not just famous for her books but for her public speaking and conferences she does. Normally I love it when an author reads their own book, but her intonation and fluctuation in voice is really lacking.

Ears bleed from the verbatim read out.

Her reading verbatim, line after line makes me want to go jump off a cliff. Really. Fantastic content, however her attempt in delivery makes it unbearable to listen to. She is a wonderful, developed woman, she shouldn't have to read it terribly monotone like she did. She's a wonderful guest on talk shows, that's what made me buy her audio book... She should've reciprocated that same character in her sharing this valuable knowledge.
Fantastic system though. Just hope that she could perhaps do a redo so I could tell all my friends

A different kind of parenting book.

What did you love best about The Child Whisperer?

The information contained in this book is very helpful to understanding children and what motivates their behavior. Having this understanding helps me work with my child more effectively.

What three words best describe Carol Tuttle’s performance?

Performance of the book is rather cut and dry. She is reading directly, just passing on the information. The worth of this book comes from her information rather than the performance. I really don't see how "performance" of an informational book could be very exciting or entertaining.

Any additional comments?

The information contained here is very valuable to any parent, any person dealing with children. Or even other people. You'll no longer be saying "WHY did you do that?" and hopefully, you'll also be able to accept your children as they are and be better able to work with them.

Very insightful

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

I've recently learned that she has been abused most of her life, but she hid it so well. She is very sensitive and just absorbs everything said and done to her because she doesn't want to burden others.
I'm trying to learn how to gain her trust so she will know I love and support her - and want to share her burden so I can help her. This book is helping me to do that.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Child Whisperer?

It's important to support her personality rather than punishing her. Especially since she's been abused. And trusting that she knows herself and what she wants better than anyone.

Do you think The Child Whisperer needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

Yes - I would like to know more about what happens when their personalities have not been supported and have been damaged. How do we get them back on track?

Any additional comments?

I gave "overall" rating three stars because the website is maddening. All things link me to the clothing section. I'm not interested in buying clothing for our personalities. I simply wanted to find a summary of the personalities so I could ask my daughter which she thought was hers, but could not find anything because they all kept redirecting me to the clothes. That is ruining my experience with what I'm learning.

If you're an empath, you don't need this

I think it is great that the author tries to teach and encourage adult caretakers to understand children based on their innate nature, but I honestly didn't get much out of this book because I was already aware of this. I also have a strong intuition and empathic ability that is much more useful than the theory of the "different types" that she talks about (there are some weaknesses here as well). But I'm sure this book can be useful for others ☺️

This book will change your life

I have read Carol's adult book Live Your Truth, but still had not totally settled on what my energy profile was. However hearing about this book put me in touch with my childhood and how I relayed to my parents and enabled me to come to a successful conclusion.
I love the way that Carol is so respectful towards children and encourages parents to also be.
It is very useful to be able to understand how the children I know relate to the word.
I am recommending this book to all the parents I have contact with.
I found that Carol's reading in the first part of the book left me stressed. I was thinking that a type 2 patent would have difficulty listening to it. Fortunately she slowed her pace and became calmer as she read about the type 2 movement. And the rest of the book was easier on my nerves.
That being said I still recommend this book very highly if you want to improve your relationships with your children, spouse and any human actually, especially yourself.

Very Enlightening and Insightful!

I easily listened to this in two days on a long road trip. As an experienced nanny I found it very interesting and wish I listened to it earlier. The advice rings very true to me and was put in a positive and supportive way. Carol also narrated clearly and professionally as well as writing it perfectly. My family recommended it to me, as I do to you.
