How to Talk So Kids Will Listen & Listen So Kids Will Talk -- Summary “Finally, Faber and Mazlish debunk old school communicating techniques with children and introduce refreshing ways to make kids listen”
Please Note: This is a summary and analysis of “How to Talk So Kids Will Listen & Listen So Kids Will Talk” written by Adele Faber and Elaine Mazlish, not the original book. We summarize and analyze each chapter to help you better understand the original.
Most of what we know as parents come from the way we were raised. We usually treat our kids the way our parents treated us, but Faber and Mazlish show us that there’s a new way to communicate with our children so that they actually listen to us. What I love about this book is that the authors are not condescending like other parenting books. They know it’s hard, but do their best to help us understand that there is truly a better way, an alternative to screaming and punishing all the time, a way to get kids to listen to us, and it’s counter-intuitive. Faber and Mazlish suggest that we do this by listening to them. This book will give you parenting tools much needed when raising children in the twenty first century.
