This review is from: Raising Children Compassionately; Parenting the Non-violent Communication Way (Paperback)
I read this book after reading Paul Gilbert's The Compassionate Mind. It is a short but excellent read and while it can be challenging to slow down and talk things through with children, there have been some magical moments when I realise that actually this relatively simple way of communicating really works.
For me the key though is that you must put across your genuine warmth and love for the child as otherwise it can come across a bit clinical and this will get you nowhere. I am certain that by teaching children to be kind to themselves and to others we will raise a generation more compassionate than the last.
