Format: Paperback
Gottman explains how through the simple process of helping your child identify and express his feelings communication and happiness can be increased in the family, and conflict minimised.
The style is factual, scientifically backed up and not at all patronising. This book is the one I turn to for a reminder whenever I find I don't know how to deal with my child effectively or when we seem to be in a pattern of repeating horrible, unproductive scenes.

4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Andrew G. Maufe on 22 Jan. 2009
Format: Paperback
This book tells you just what is important about being a parent. I love the scientific approach and the way data is presented. It is capable of giving those of us who see the world of parenting as functional and spontaneous a totally new perspective based on care, deep understanding, consideration and thoughtfulness. The importance of good guidance is explained in terms of "coaching". This book was a real eye opener for me and probably the best I have ever read. I am moved to change.

This book is a must have for any professional working with families and for parents wishing to give the child/ren the best start in life. An easy to read book that has lots of practical advice on dealing with our emotions and the power of love etc.

Useful book , slightly "American" for the English audience but have found the tactics useful with our very fiery 7 year old.
