'This book is a long overdue 'must read' for anyone who truly cares about future generations. Judy writes with practical compassion and love.' (Sue Knight, author of NLP at Work)

'I felt comfortable in the company of the author ... she is someone I could trust' (Sisters Magazine)

As an adoptive parent I was a bit dubious about how this book would work, or how I would rate it.
I have worked with children for 20+ years and don't give much time to any of them.
This is a great, easy read with little tasks to help you sort out your thoughts and clarify what the book is saying.

Many of the ideas are adaptable to the 'therapeutic parenting' way, and many of them don't need adapting at all.
As with all childcare books you can dip in & out and use what you would feel is useful with your child.

I love the way it is written in a non dictorial manner, rather than telling you what you are doing wrong, it gives ideas to put things right.

A great book, that I highly recommend.

As a mum of three, I've read a lot of parenting manuals. Usually they approach parenting as a list of 'do's' and 'don'ts' or 'problem-solution' and assume all children act and think pretty much the same way. This book is different, and the better for it. Much more thought-provoking, it contains a series of exercises to carry out by yourself or with your children, to work out how your children think and respond to the world around them. Then, with this new knowledge, there are suggestions on how you can speak and act to tune in to the individuals your children are.

My favourite part was the section on how to encourage your children to make friends more easily and deal with negative thinking. My daughter was always coming home from school complaining about having no friends and feeling too shy to join in new activities. This book has taught me some strategies I had not read anywhere else, and which I really feel will stand her in good stead not just at school but in her adult life. The techniques it suggests are very simple and age appropriate but foster a good attitude to take through life.

I really enjoyed this book and would highly recommend it

really enjoyed this book and found it really informative and helpful .with a large family ranging in age from 19 to 2 , i had plenty of opportunity to use it .

the ideas in it our so simple to follow through . the premise that just altering the words you use when talking to a child can influence the way they respond .

it also useful as a parent to be able to use it to deal with one's own feelings of guilt or anxiety .

after only a week of use , i have already noticed a real difference in the way i deal with sibling conflicts and in the way the children respond to my requests .

brilliant ,brilliant book . i would certainly recommend to other friends with children .

I am a stay at home mum of two children aged 7 and 2. The age difference causes an awful lot of squabbling and shouting and its hard to know how to manage and discipline them. Add in a husband who is away an awful lot for work and you have a house with a lot of bellowing and shouting.

I gave this book a try as I wanted a different approach and one that would benefit both the children and myself. This book sets out a series of reflective tasks mixed in with useful techniques, insight and advice. I was a bit dubious at first butfound that it is written in a confident, kind and down-to-earth style with no psychobabble. I didn't feel judged or like I was made to feel bad at all.

The book took a month or two to work through with all the tasks and giving the information a chance to settle in and absorb, but I have found that the level of shouting has diminished by at least 50%, everyone seems happier and I seem to be parenting more calmly and intuitively. It is not a simple 'quick-fix' solution, but its one that aims to change parenting for good. I am very impressed with how easy this was to read and understand and how much of an impact it has had on my life.

I can recommend this book to other parents in a similar situation to myself and also parents wanting to have a better relationship with their children. It would also be useful to a parent who wants to boost their child's confidence and self-esteem as the techniques involved help to identify your child's strengths and weaknesses, accept them and talk to them positively and constructively about it

The book has amazing insight into parenting. It is very easy to understand. The concepts are clearly explained and it is very well edited, with important sections already highlighted. I love the tips and personal stories. It brings the concepts to live. The book can be used as a workbook by working through and answering all the questions listed. This will make you not only a more effective parent but will also have a positive impact on all your relationships... Even if you just skim through and get a few new ideas, it can change your life.... highly recommended!
