Great Book!

This is a great book & highly recommended. It really helps to put into perspective how children don't know what to do with the strong emotions they all have and helps you help your child. Once you understand your childs emotions & can help them to understand them, you will greatly reduce power struggles as well as general conflict. I recommend this book to all my friends.

This is a practical book with good lessons that can be put to immediate use.

I particularly liked the chapters on recognizing temperaments and personality styles. This book changed how I view power struggles in general and reinforced my parenting communication goals.

I will listen to this again.
