Publisher's Summary

Learning to speak is a function that develops in the first three years of life: We join syllables, then words, then complete sentences. In a sense, it's a mechanical process. However, the rest of the time, we have to do something far more complex: We have to learn to communicate. "That's all very nice," you will say. But how is it possible to accomplish this? It all starts with knowing the basic requirements for communicating with children.

In fact, in this book, you will find targeted advice based on neurological knowledge of the child's brain. In this handbook, you will find practical tips and advice for everyday life tried by other parents. For example:

  • Six common mistakes to avoid when communicating with your children
  • Four steps to open a communication channel with your children
  • Seven essential things to say to our children
  • Seven strategies to improve father-child communication

But every age has its difficulties and needs: You cannot speak the same way to a three-, five-, seven-, or 12-year-old child.

It is a fact that good communication during childhood makes work much less strenuous during preadolescence and adolescence. This book will help you build an effective and functioning communication channel for childhood and preadolescence, a difficult time for both parents and children (especially children). During preadolescence, the relationship between parents and children changes, and communication can deteriorate drastically. To communicate with them, it is necessary to know their needs and what is going on in their lives. Therefore, in our journey, we will touch on important topics such as: 

  • Body change
  • The importance of social relationships with peers
  • Curiosity about sex
  • How to deal with first crushes and relationships 
  • Ten tips for dealing with a preteen child who has become "rebellious"
  • And much more! 

Yes, now is the time to take action: Click on "Buy Now" and you will find that communicating effectively and assertively is possible!

Oversimplified, very preachy

Quick read but needs to have more research discussed supporting information. More creative techniques would improve suggestions as well.

Excellent

Very good, exactly what I was expecting from it. Very dense and hard to apply on the spot though. It gives a lot of advices but it requires day to day practice to actually apply them.

Great listen

This book explains the difference and provides guidance. I strongly feel it is vital for children to understand what they did wrong and to receive logical consequences for their wrong doing. Punishment is pointless and it does not help guide children on the path of making correct decisions. It only adds to children’s trauma.
