This book completely changed my perspective about how I should talk to my children. It radically changed what I say to my children. I have both the print and audio editions and really enjoyed listening to it so the parental voices became someone else's besides my own.

Thank you for writing this! I recommend to any parent. Was extremely helpful. Already seen improvements and got me thinking about it scientifically again instead if just flabbergasted parent.

It's not a magic wound - nothing is. But there are some good tips and explanations. Happy I bought it.

Excellent performance from all the narrators and authors! Really enjoyable to listen and very informative. I'm still in progress to change how I'm with my kids along the advises from this book, but can say that after a week - loosely using the tools that are presented in the book - got some very positive changes.
It also had some life gems for me. Never really understood why I couldn't take praises when I was a child myself, but after listening the part about praises, now finally understood what mistakes most of us do when praising one and another.
The authors are not pretending to give you a 100% working examples, since all kids are different this would be impossible, but rather many-many good techniques and advises.
Must "read" for all busy/stressed/normal parents :)

I had been looking for practical strategies to support parents in dealing with childhood anger and anxiety when i purchased this book.
I'm so glad i gave this book a chance. The ideas offered are simple yet powerful in creating behaviour change. I also like the way the authours reassure parents that mistakes are ok and there is no such thing as a perfect parent.
I loved the narration too. i sometimes struggle listening to American narrators who speak too fast, but this one was perfectly paced. It also used several 'actors' which improved the clarity of the stories as well as making them very entertaining.
i will be purchasing the paper copy of this book and recommending it to all parents attending my programs. Thank you.
Rich in examples used by varied parents/kids. General applicability, less useful for behavioural disorders.
The PDF summary is a fantastic resource for time-poor parents.
