Format: Paperback
What distinguishes this book from many other parenting books is its focus on the dignity of yourself, and your child, and the integrity of your relationship. "When your child is an adult, do you want them to have a strong loving adult relationship with you?" If your answer is yes, you might want to focus on your emotional reponses to daily situations that arise now, rather than your emotional REACTIONS. The principles in this book teach you how to do just that, helping you to create an emotional environment in your home of respect and love for other members of the family. It helps to make your home a place where people want to be, an oasis from the outside world. It has the added benefit of improving other relationships in your life as well and your overall sense of well being because it feels right. If your child could recommend one book to you, this would be it. As my 15 year old son commented when he saw the title, "Mom, since you bought that book, you have been so much nicer to us. I love Sarah Chana Radcliffe." (Son, so do I)

I have read some great parenting books including "How to talk so kids will listen and listen so kids will talk" and got great parenting ideas. But still found that I was getting frustrated and yelling too often. This book addresses parental anger in a non judgemental but straightforward way. The disipline strategies described in this book are easy to implement and really help to keep the frustration level from escalating. Even before I finished the book, I was using the strategies. Evenings that could easily have become an excercise in frustration and yelling, instead became time that my children and I totally enjoyed each others company. I can now see that as my children enter the teen years, I will be able to teach them how to be respectful through respectful disipline. I have just finished reading it and I am starting it again and can see myself referring to this book until my children have grown. I am going to buy it as a gift for the new Mom's I know. It is the perfect "manual" for raising children in a loving respectful environment.

Make this be your first (and last?) parenting book! This would make a great gift to anyone with children of any age. I absolutely adore "Raise Your Kids.."--it's truly the best parenting book I've ever read, and I've read many. Everything in this book that I've tried works--go figure! Seriously, one might think, oh, right, another parenting book, how can there possibly be something new in this one that hasn't already been said before? True, Radcliffe presents ideas on limit-setting and emotional coaching that are similar to "How to Talk so Kids will Listen" (one of the first parenting books I ever read), but what makes this book so special is its emphasis on building the right relationship with your child, using the 80% positive vs. 20% negative, envisioning the adult you want your child to become and encouraging those qualities you want him/her to have in adulthood. "Raise Your Kids" also addresses the very real issues of parental anger management and the importance of keeping your cool while disciplining your kids appropriately and respectfully, and, all in all, raising them to interact respectfully with other people. Imagine a world in which everyone spoke to each other respectfully, without yelling! This is truly a superlative book. I keep putting it on my husband's bedside table for him to read, and then I keep taking it back to look at it again!

I am a real screamer, like my mother and grandmother before me. Reading this book has taught me how to break the endless cycle, and it will probably save me thousands in therapy bills for my kids when they are older. I wish my mother had read it!

Raise Your Kids Without Raising Your Voice distinguishes itself from the myriad of parenting books on the market in that it offers extremely practical suggestions on how to be a better parent. There is parenting philosophy and emotional support for parents, but it is the easy to follow parenting tools that make this book a must for every parent. The advice is relevant whether your child is two or twenty, whether you are a first time parent or a very experienced one and can be used with the easist of children or the most challenging. For anyone who has ever wished that the parenting job was just a little easier, this is THE parenting book to buy. I found it easy to read, easy to follow and my son and my students are happy with the results. Best of all, I feel more confident about my ability to parent in a way that benefits the entire family.

This book is wonderful. As a therapist for street youth and the mother of a toddler, I am thrilled to have come across an antidote for poor parent-child relationships. This book is written in a style that's interesting and easy to read. I am amazed at how well the 2x rule works for my toddler. Even though he doesn't always listen to me, he now understands and accepts the consequences of not doing so! Before I applied this rule I just sounded like a broken record which was frustrating for both of us. This book is a keeper - I'll be referring to it for years to come.
