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.
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
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 .
Be A Happier Parent with NLP is an absolute must for any parent or child care professional, parent or not, as it gives simple, clear instructions to practices that have immediate impact...
This book is one of the best I have ever come across and I cannot recommend it highly enough...
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
