Summary

Talking to your kids and getting them to open up to you as parents can be tough. They may feel afraid to talk, or feel awkward about the topic at hand, or may not know how to broach the subject with you. This book was designed to help you as parents (or guardians or caretakers) learn to communicate with your children in a way that makes them open up to you. Included are new and fresh insights and suggestions with methods of solving common problems as well as building the foundations for lasting relationships with your children.

Terrible advice!

I could not believe how backward thinking and unhelpful this was
Writing lines? Punishment?
Generally shocked and disappointed

Not the book I wanted

I was after the audio for a book with same name, but different author. This book is way too short.

Easy listening and informative

This book was nice and short yet packed with very useful information. The narrator spoke clearly and at a steady pace. Would definitely recommend this to anyone who has children or works with children.

This is old news and out of date

I thought this would be fact and research based but it isn't. Very disappointed with this book.

Too basic

Not a lot of substance. Great for first-time parent dealing with toddlers. Not realistic or timely for teenagers. There was nothing about how to get children to open up.

This is a Book that helped Us Communicate Better

We have a 12 year old daughter who at times have difficulty speaking with us as parents. This book has provided us a good insight on how to listen more effectively so that we can communicate better with our child. I would definitely recommend this book for anyone who has difficulties with their children.
