I have struggled so long to stop the yelling matches with my son. We love each other more than life, yet I found we were constantly besieged by fighting that left me sad, exhausted and feeling like a failure. The mirroring that Jennifer teaches helped me to easily reach my son and then to deal with his self-control difficulties. Her methods took away the anger ingredient. We are moving forward in a much healthier way.
"Connected parenting" is easy to read, chock full of useful examples and it makes you feel empowered rather than "lesser than" as some of the other child help books do. I strongly recommend it for your bookshelf as it will see you through every stage of childhood. Jennifer's techniques do amazing things for adult relationships, too. You NEED THIS BOOK for whenever you're feeling incapable, lonely, stressed or simply in need of some familial inspiration. It will rock your world and solidify your family life.
Without question, a groundbreaking system for raising confident, strong, balanced, and resilient children. They should hand this one out in the delivery room.
After one month with Jennifer, we saw a difference. By the end of that school year, he had made friends, was coming home happy, and we were not receiving any more phone calls. Her parenting model, and the advice she provided both him and us as parents, turned his life around. He has not had any behavioural issues, nor has he been called to the office in over two years. He is excelling academically, he has friends, and has socially adjusted very well. After years of angst, Connected Parenting has made all the difference in the world to us. Thank God for Jennifer Kolari, our only regret is that we didn't meet her sooner. I'm delighted she has written this book, so that parents world-wide can benefit from her remarkable work.
After trying the "mirroring" for a few days, I have already noticed that my 2 year old is becoming calmer.
Those who prefer the idea of parenting without punishments and rewards will not like the second half of the book which deals with setting limits as much as the first section.
The moment I implemented Jennifer's 'mirroring' techniques and started to empathize with my son's emotions (no matter how outlandish they seemed) I was able to defuse his melt-downs, tune him in and then take action. I noticed results almost immediately! All my son wanted was to be heard and understood! I wish I had found this book sooner... it would have helped to eliminate a lot of frustration on both our ends.
Thank you Connected Parenting!
