Game changer!

I have 4 children from the age of 1 up to 6 years old. This has given me practical things to follow, and helped my children and my relationship tremendously! My 4 year old will even come up to me just to say "I really like you mommy." And it makes me cry! Don't put it off, read this book! Putting of the helpful pages they offer, and post then on your bathroom window!

Mejorando Comunicacion

Es una lástima que este libro sea tan difícil de conseguir, es realmente muy bueno y de gran ayuda para la crianza de los que tenemos niños pequeños. Mientras mas pequeños estén cuando usted lo lea, mas productivo será. Dese la oportunidad de mejorar, efectivamente, la comunicación con sus hijos, brindándoles un ambiente de seguridad y de firmeza.

A must for all parents

I first heard Adele Faber talk at a college near my home when I was pregnant with my first child. Everything she said made such sense! She really struck a chord with me. I immediately went out and bought this book, and read it cover to cover. I parent by the principals of this book, and I'm convinced my child is socially and emotionally happier and healthier because of it. I re-read it at least once a year, and always give it as a gift to new parents. This book is the "holy grail" of parenting, and anyone who influences a child's life, including teachers, babysitters, etc. should read this book.

Not Just Kids! How to talk to Anybody!

A therapist recommended this book to me when my son was 4 years old and I was going though a difficult divorce. I read the book and actually photocopied the basic ideas of each chapter and taped them to the refrigerator for easy reference. The ideas are simple and effective. They build self-esteem and keep the avenues of communication open between parent and child. My son is now almost 18, and we still have a terrific relationship. I've been following the practices in this book for 14 years and I can tell you it has made all the difference. Wherever my son goes, I hear from people who tell me how wonderful he is, how well-mannered, pleasant and charming. They all want to know what ever did I do to raise him this way. I tell them about this book. The more I move through life and the business world, however, I am struck how the same techniques enhance communication between adults in all aspects of life. This book should also be listed in the Business/Management section. It says all the same things the high-priced consultants say -- treat people with respect, do not deny their emotions, state the facts (only) and shut up and listen. This book also talks about giving praise and recognition, which makes it another reason to use it in real life, inside the family AND outside in the "real" world.
