Book Description

Can you imagine having children who didn't want to talk to you or listen to anything you say? This happens in many homes and it is such a pity! Keeping connected and communicative with your child starts at a young age. If you don't start early on, you'll have no chance as they reach the teenage years.

Communicating With Your Kids give real life examples and solutions. Strategies are suggested for how you can keep the lines of communication open and positive.

This is the 6th book in the series 'Positive Parenting' by Karen Campbell and Katrina Kahler. Both ladies are highly experienced and awarded teachers with 60 years of combined experience in the classroom, helping children deal with a vast array of problems, social skills and academic challenges. They have both raised two children each and these children have grown up to be teenage leaders in their community.

Other books in this parenting series include: The Puberty Bomb; How To Win Friends And Influence People for Kids; Confident Kids; How To Improve Your Child's Behavior Today; Achieving Success At School; Smart Baby; and The Parenting Trap (this book has it all).

Karen and Katrina are on a mission to share their knowledge and experience with parents worldwide. They want to show you how to help your child to achieve their full potential and lead happy and successful lives.

The authors have aimed their books at children aged from birth through to the early teenage years. Click on the book image above and have a look inside, the clickable table of contents will give you an insight into the valuable information contained in this potentially life-changing book.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must for anyone raising children 18 Oct. 2012
By Nik
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Karen and Katrina have put together a very comprehensive list of tips and tricks we can use to have a better conversation. I particularly like the questions she proposes to get conversations going and how teach kids to deal with conflict.

The book is short and to the point. A great reminder that these little people in the back of the car love to talk (once you get them going)

5.0 out of 5 stars Powerful. Important. If you don't know this stuff, you NEED to know this stuff! 11 Oct. 2012
By Scot Conway - Published on

I admit I came in late in this series since this is Book 4 and I never read the first three. That said, I can conclusively say that if you jump in right here because this is your issue, you're in good hands. Campbell and Kahler keep it simple and straight forward enough that you can start right here.
Personally, I have three of four boys that will chat with us. One of them is such a chatterbox that the problem is sometimes getting him to stop! That fourth, though, doesn't communicate much with anyone. He used to, but he's withdrawn into himself and seems most disinterested in coming out. From time to time, almost at random (from anything we can see), he is interested in chatting with mom (and mom seems to be the only one he has actual conversations with these days).
This book is good advice. Very solid. Basic enough that no reader should be lost. Insightful enough to make a difference for anyone who might read it. I hope that every parent is doing some of that they teach. I expect every parent has at least one or two things to learn. It's a quick, easy read, and it's very useful. I recommend it.
I vacillated between four and five stars until I paused to ponder how powerful the techniques are. My lean toward four stars was entirely predicated on how much of this I already knew. I had to remind myself that I've been communicating with kids and teens for more than twenty years. If you don't already know this stuff.... You NEED to know this stuff!

5.0 out of 5 stars Important Read 26 Sept. 2012
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
As parents we go through the daily grind (and joys!) of parenting but getting sucked into daily routine and problems it's easy to miss the basics and wonder where things go wrong (and why the go right too.) This book is a great guide on how to open up the communication with your children and I found techniques that I had been unknowingly using that were working and also that are not. With the tips and explanations on how to fix the ones that are not I plan on implementing TODAY. Great book!

Communicating With Your Kids: Learning How To Talk And Listen To Each Other (The Parenting Trap) is a must for anyone raising children. Our twin boys are the type of children who answer "ok" to most of what we ask them. Effective communication with your children is so important. I plan to use the advice in this book to get them to open up more to us!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Must Read For All Parents 23 Sept. 2012
By Stuart Fish - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Communication is one of the most important skills that anyone can learn and the sooner we can learn these skills, the better. Karen and Katrina are teachers and parents of young children and their book on how to communicate with your kids is a winner on so many levels. As a father of three daughters, I know how important it was when they were growing up to have open and honest communication channels...and I must say, I agreed with all the lessons and steps that this great book provides to parents.

FIlled with real life stories that bring the lessons to life, I found myself agreeing all along the way through this well written, well structured and easy to read guide. One of the key benefits to every parent is that by learning these techniques, or maybe just brushing up your existing communication skills a little, not only will you talk to your kids more openly and honestly, and have them open up to you in a more forthcoming way, but your kids will learn to communicate better themselves. This will give them more confidence, help them make more friends at school, help them deal with any bullying they might experience at school and help their parents and teachers uncover any potential problems that might be arising, early on.

This book covers the ground thoroughly and is, in my view, a must read for every parent of school age children.

Don't hesitate! Grab your copy now!

5.0 out of 5 stars An amazingly practical guide for any parent. 22 Sept. 2012
By Emerald - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I was stunned when the opening of Chapter One was, in effect, a story from my own life and an event with my own daughter when she was entering puberty. How I wish that I had read this book before that day on which I felt so helpless as a parent! I immediately felt compelled after the first paragraphs to read the entire book and I'm so happy I did even though all my children are now fully grown. I now know I wasn't alone in my confusion. This book is a home run! It is a very practical guide to communication and respect within a family and between friends. In fact, the effectively presented information can be applied in every walk of life. It is clear that Karen and Katrina have great love for children. It is equally clear that they have worked hard through their lives and careers to translate that love into ways for those who care for each other to grow closer and not let misunderstanding destroy beautiful friendships. Thank you for writing this great book that I will recommend to others.
