Believe it or not, how you speak to your child determines whether they will listen to you or not. You are at war with outside influences on your child's behaviors and reactions. For this reason, wise and tactical approaches are recommended to not just win your child over, but to have their utter and complete respect.
With a no-nonsense, straightforward approach, "How to Talk to Kids" is the ultimate guide for both new and seasoned parents. Rachel Burgess, a mother of three, offers sound advice and strategies on getting your child to listen.
Some of the areas explored in this book are:
- The Reason Your Child is Not Listening to You
- Practicing Active Listening
- Understanding the Difference Between Discipline and Punishment
- Mistakes Made When Listening to Your Kids
- Managing Your Anger
- Understanding Your Child's Psychology
- Effective Consequences
- Teaching Good Manners
- Making Conversation with Your Kids A Priority
Whether you are at your wits end with a child who talks back and does the opposite of what they are told, or you merely want to sharpen your parenting skills to create a bond and mutual respect with your child, "How to Talk to Kids" is the guide for you. Rachel advises from an empirical perspective with a style that is emphatic, instructional, and exhortative.
By the end of his book, parents will not only be more knowledgeable and understanding about the "why" of their child's behaviors, but will also take a step back to examine themselves and their own approach toward communication with their child.
Heavy discipline often affects fear, but fear does not equate to respect. Do you truly want your child to fear you or revere you? If it is the latter, then "How to Talk to Kids" is the blueprint guide to taking you there!
