Summery of 'How to Talk'

If you listened to 'How to Talk', you don't need this one. A lot of stuff are the same.

For practical applications

This book is by far the best parenting book I have read. Many parenting books talk about why children behave and talk in certain ways without recommendations on what to do. This book is full of practical applications. I put ticket only liked various demonstrations of how things typically go versus what we could do differently. I would recommend this book to anyone who are struggling as to how to talk to their kids.
