Rip-off of much more helpful book - How to Talk So Kids Will Listen & Listen So Kids Will Talk (Paperback)by Adele Faber (Author), Elaine Mazlish (Author) written in 1999 which is much more helpful and has many good examples in cartoon form.

4.0 out of 5 stars Looks like a helpful book Dec 16 2004
By Gontroppo - Published on
I have appreciated Wright's book on Communication in Marriage, and thought this one could be helpful to get parents thinking about parenting and talking to children.

And I have found it to be as good as it looks.

Wright stresses letting your children be themselves and not trying to change their basic personalities. But he also gives ideas about helping your child to learn how to deal with their own special personalities.

For example, if you have a child who takes a long time to think and respond, don't ask them to change, but give them extra time to think things through.

I think every parent would benefit by thinking through what he has to say.

I also recommend Tim Kimmel's Grace-based Parenting stimulating.

2.0 out of 5 stars Simple and Hopefully Effective Aug. 28 2008
By S. Harrison - Published on
I have had two children to a previous marriage and therefore I think I know it all. That's a guy for you. So when I spied this I thought it would be good for my wife and I to read in order to assist us with a 00ties (nauties, 2000's) child. She is 6 going on 26.

The book is very easy reading, perhaps a little too easy and you need to get into it a fair way before the "How to" starts. Personally I am not religious and found the ".. Step 6 - Follow the Scriptures.." a cop out.

Anyway a good light book that gave me a couple of good tips like use "would you" instead of "could you" in a sentence. After all you are asking the child to actually do something not 'if' they can do it.
4.0 out of 5 stars Good parenting Resource Sept. 22 2011
By adayriddle - Published on
I am a fan of H. Norman Wright and was excited to finally get this book. I am a mother of four children - and as all parents know each child is drastically different. My first was a difficult baby and toddler but by far exceeds maturity and grace at the age of ten. My next to youngest however was a "perfect" baby that turned into a difficult 3 and now four year old. His quick temper and angry outburst make it difficult to talk him through things. In fact both of my boys are somewhat this way. I become so used to being able to reason with my oldest, to explain consequences and know she would choose the right path that I was, and am still to a certain extent, thrown off balance with my boys and youngest feisty girl. Being thrown off balance I began to yell or slam my hand down on a surface to get attention - then I would threaten, threaten, threaten. Over and over my husband said to follow through - but honestly I stayed worn out as a stay at home mom and home school teacher. Seemed my whole day revolved around upheaval.

This book was excellent at bringing out solid points on communicating with each child on their terms while showing respect and getting getting respect for your authority. I enjoyed this book very much and have found it helpful - Though to be honest I am having to keep it handy for review and not shelved just yet.

Thank you Gospel Light for this review copy.
