Before I read How to Talk So Kids Will Listen and Listen So Kids Will Talk, my communication with my children left a lot to be desired. As a mother of two I have faced many of the frustrations that come with parent-child communication, from power struggles to tantrums. Faber and Mazlish's astounding text took my communication efforts to new levels by introducing me to a means of talking to my children that I had not considered before. Although I have always considered myself to be a good mom, some of the approaches I took towards resolving situations like tantrums and arguments were actually making the situation worse. How to Talk So Kids Will Listen and Listen So Kids Will Talk brought an entirely new approach to our family home. Rather than condescending to my children, lecturing, and demoralizing them through harsh words, I learned to adapt my approach so that they were treated as equals. Simple language adaptations allowed me to do this, and although I struggled to drop my old habits at first, I eventually learned to communicate in a way that changed our family home for the better. Faber and Mazlish encourage respect, non-patronizing language, cooperation, praise and, an empowering approach to talking and listening to children. After reading their book, I felt as though much of it was common sense
