We have started putting some of the advice and tips from the first few chapters into practice at home and we are already seeing an improvement. A lot of what is said in the book makes sense and is the complete opposite of how most of us were raised. I find myself saying a lot of the same things some of the parents in the book had said. Once I started reading the book, I sure got an eye opener.
I will continue reading the book and putting the advice to good use. I understand it will take some time to implement and see the changes I want but I am very hopeful that we have finally found the solution to help my oldest with her behavior issues.
I highly recommend any parent reading this book. I am sure this book is a life changer for those that read and put into action.
I would say buying the original book is a better bet - even if you have teenagers and not kids. The original one is longer and more thorough, though if you are looking for a quick read this book would be better.
However the examples in How to Talk So Teens Will Listen do have teenagers as the examples, which may be more helpful.
The authors are amazing and they do a great job with almost every book they write, so it is still a great book.
My only criticism is that at times I found it to be a more like a guide on communication with neurotypical children. The same ideas are useful for talking to any child, but I would have liked to see a little more emphasis on having appropriate expectations. I've worked with kids that have a lot of extra challenges, and something that might come easily for most members of their age group is complicated and scary and overwhelming to them; in those cases even expressing frustration at circumstances created by the child without any blaming can damage an already delicate self-esteem. I really appreciated how it always centred around empathy and respect, though. I have been working to reframe my thinking more positively and to operate under the assumption that everyone is doing their best with the tools they have been given, and this book has really helped to reinforce that. I enjoyed how it was sympathetic to both parent and child.
It's clear the authors walk the walk because I finished the book feeling proud of the few techniques I had already figured out for myself and highly motivated to improve in other areas. Do yourself and your kin a favour and read this book!
