An example of its practicality - my son hates having his face and hands wiped after meals. Following the advice in the book I gave him the cloth and asked him to wipe my face. I squealed and pulled faces - he loved it, then let me wash his face with no problems. He could see that I hated it too but that I was happy with the result. He had some control and power where he had felt out of control and powerless before. Mealtimes now end far more pleassantly than before.
It is challenging book, and at times I've struggled to carry it through, but I'm going to keep trying...This isn't a quick fix or a set of tips to use. This is an approach to parenting that will take time and effort to adopt...but will be worth it. I'm already seeing the rewards in the connection between myself and my son, and my own ability to be more playful and relaxed. Thank you Mr Cohen!!!!
