Learn how to communicate properly
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.
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!
What I love about the book: gets straight into practical, easy-to-use steps to deal with the most common things we struggle with. This book is super easy to read, makes so much sense, and uses a variety of examples and cartoons to help hammer home the points. My sense is that this book will actually help all relationships and communication, not just with kids. I know that if my parents, partner, and coworkers used some of the communication strategies in this book I'd be a lot happier!

I have always been a strict parent, I have high expectations of my boys, myself, my husband... I have been going about reaching those high expectations the wrong way all my life it would appear! Having read the first few pages, it was clear that my attitude needed a drastic rethink. I tried to put the suggested teaching to work and instantly my eldest responded well. I can see him growing in confidence before my eyes and he's started talking openly about his life. I am humbled. Even the woman who knew everything, didn't. I'm still learning, and so are my family, but these two ladies have persuaded me that their way is better than mine ever was. It's not easy, and I forget easily, slipping into my old habits, but I believe this something really worth working at. I can't recommend it highly enough.
The best part was .... One morning my 10 yes hero stood in front of me with this book in his hands and said... U have become polite coz u r reading this book, I have read.. It is about handling kids....
I thought what next now enemy has known my secrets. ...
Keep reading.. And enjoy
Good so far as the text is concerned. My complaint is in a kindle format,pictures and their dialogue boxes are too small and not adaptable to enlargement. There are a lot of such pages in this book.
