From the Back Cover
This book is an innovative, accessible and groundbreaking guide that will change the way adults communicate with children forever.
David Hemery believes that within every young person there is a spark of greatness and a unique individual keen to fulfil his or her potential. Every adult is a guardian of that flame of talent. Using everyday scenarios and cartoons he introduces:
EFFECTIVE QUESTIONING and ATTENTIVE LISTENING powerful and positive communication tools that deliver extraordinary results.
Every parent, teacher and coach will recognise common pitfalls that are described with astute comment and humour. Hemery shows how easy it is to transform conflict in communication, and to encourage young people to take responsibility for their actions, develop their self-esteem and reach their true potential.See all Product Description

For parents, grandparents, teachers, coaches, in fact anyone.
The book makes huge amounts of sense. We generally don't encourage our children to think enough for themselves and they become reliant on adults making decisions for them. Not a recipe that will lead to successful independent adulthood!
The techniques proposed in the book are simple enough to understand but inevitably much harder to implement. I believe its worth persevering and practicing not only for the better relationship you could build with your children but the wider benefits of being a more active listener and engaged questioner at work and in your other relationships.
