Goodreads Book Reviews

“Children don’t arrive with a nice set of instructions, though there are plenty of parenting books out in the world, some of them good. This one is really really good! The author is local to our shop and she came by and visited and told me all about her style of working with parents and about some of her experiences over the last couple of decades. I really liked what she had to say and after reading her book I can see why she’s been so successful.

Too many parent / child relationships are adversarial, filled with conflict, loaded with battles where no one wins. Cynthia Klein provides a clear, comprehensive, practical, and doable roadmap to changing from an adversarial relationship to one where a parent becomes an ally with his or her child. Key milestones on this road include learning to understand what’s actually happening in each interaction, responses that can cause communication to shut down, and learning different ways of responding that open up more communication, and jointly working together to solve problems.

The book is loaded with real life examples of situations that parents working with the author encountered, how they dealt with them before learning the techniques in the book, and how they dealt with similar situations later, with very different results.

If you’re trying to navigate your way to a better relationship with your child, this is an excellent book. We only carry a few parenting books in our shop and this one just made the grade!” – Craig Wiesner (owner at Reach and Teach Books, Toys, and Gifts)
