Prioritizing Simpler, More Effective Family Connections
Full of wisdom, warmth, clarity, humor, and respect. This book and one other called 'The Pocket Parent' have reminded me of the many simple, common sense things that I already knew but forgot are options to do and say relating to my young children. I am very consciously no longer on automatic (often hysterical) parenting pilot 24/7 (yelling, nagging, obsessing, bribing, competing, rushing, criticizing and punishing). Thanks to these 2 books teaching the many communication and discipline skills that work, there is more peace and joy in our home and more happy quality time spent with our children. Our priorities are changing and we are deciding what we need to do differently to reach our short- and long-term family goals. If you have young children, check out both of these eye-opening supportive books, chockful of suggestions that can change your life. The bottom line is so simple...we just need to embrace it!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

A diamond in the rough of parenting books
This book is a gem. If you're a practiced mindful parent, you will appreciate the well-written and thoughtful reminders of how to 'be' with children. If you are new to the more simple ways of living, you will treasure the insight and practical advice given here. The chapters are short, easy and a pleasure to read. This is one of my favorite books to recommend.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
