And boom - she completely calmed down. She sat next to me without saying anything, but I could tell, she was finally feeling what she was feeling -- rather than being upset and fighting to claim her right to feel what she was feeling, if that makes sense. And that was that. She stopped being upset and ate her broken candy cane.
There are so many other examples like this -- the 'one word' tip, the 'describe it/don't tell them what to do' tip, the 'write a wish list together' tip... I could go on. They really work!
I would definitely recommend. I will continue reading and hopefully update the review.

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.
10/10 would recommend to any parent who wants to make sure they have a good relationship with their child.
No more tantrums and no more fights.
Learn how to communicate properly
One to keep and continue to refer to over the years. I had fallen into a bad habit of saying "do this, otherwise this will happen" and I wasn't happy with the almost bullying tone that was developing. This book gave me lots of other ways of speaking to my child and has had a very positive impact on our relationship. An excellent book.
I am more able to cope with issues and have a number for tools to help me through trying situations.
It was nice to feel somebody was empathising with the struggles of bringing up children, regardless of how many you have and thir ages.
STRONGLY RECCOMMEND THIS BOOK!!
