5.0 out of 5 stars A cordial book which includes original thoughts., 29 Aug. 1998
By A Customer
This review is from: Kid Cooperation: How to Stop Yelling, Nagging and Pleading and Get Kids to Cooperate: How to Stop Yelling and Pleading and Get Your Kids to Cooperate (Paperback)
Children are the most valuable things that we have in the life. All people want their children to be good in every aspect. We, parents, are in the position to prepare them to life. Children are like dough, ready to give form. Every behaviour of us leaves a trace on these doughs. When the dough is dried, we are surprized with the result.
"If you are an accountant, and there is a deficit in the daily balance, you stay at night and find the reason. If you are a cook, and burn the cake, you'll make another one, but you do not have that chance on your children. You can not compansate your mistake about your children" says Elizabeth Pantley, while trying to emphasize the importance of the subject.
We love our children, but this love, by itself, does not teach us the right behaviours to our children. In Kid Cooperation, Elizabeth Pantley is sharing her experiences with the readers, as a professional expert on family issues and as the mother of three children. The book consists of 9 chapters some of which are: What are your parental methods?, Cooperation, Punishment and Discipline, How to improve self confidence of your child? and How to improve fraternal relations?
Every chapter is divided into subsections and each heading is explained together with lived examples. At the end of each chapter there is a summary table containing the headings of the chapter.
There are very original thoughts in the book. For example in the 'how to improve fraternal relations?' chapter a usual mistake is pointed out. She gives the example of a family who buys birthday presents to all three of their children at every birthday. In that case none of the children feels the privilege of living a birthday and they also do not learn how to share the happines of their brother or sister. So she says: 'Do not behave equally to your children, the real world is not so. Show them that there may be cases in which you buy something to one of them but nothing to the others. This maybe hard at first time, but they get used to this later.' And she gives an example from her family as she does many times in the book.
In general, Elizabeth Pantley teaches the world of children, the way they think, the way they respond. She gives the behaviour models to get good response from a child.
While her professional experince forms the outline , her compassionate mother character adorns the details of the book: A wondefull book
