A must-have guide for anyone who lives or works with young kids, with an introduction by Adele Faber, coauthor of How to Talk So Kids Will Listen & Listen So Kids Will Talk, the international mega-bestseller The Boston Globe dubbed “The Parenting Bible.”

For nearly forty years, parents have turned to How to Talk So Kids Will Listen & Listen So Kids Will Talk for its respectful and effective solutions to the unending challenges of raising children. Now, in response to growing demand, Adele’s daughter, Joanna Faber, along with Julie King, tailor How to Talk’s powerful communication skills to parents of children ages two to seven.

Faber and King, each a parenting expert in her own right, share their wisdom accumulated over years of conducting How To Talk workshops with parents, teachers, and pediatricians. With a lively combination of storytelling, cartoons, and observations from their workshops, they provide concrete tools and tips that will transform your relationship with the children in your life.

What do you do with a little kid who…won’t brush her teeth…screams in his car seat…pinches the baby...refuses to eat vegetables…throws books in the library...runs rampant in the supermarket? Organized by common challenges and conflicts, this book is an essential manual of communication strategies, including a chapter that addresses the special needs of children with sensory processing and autism spectrum disorders.

This user-friendly guide will empower parents and caregivers of young children to forge rewarding, joyful relationships with terrible two-year-olds, truculent three-year-olds, ferocious four-year-olds, foolhardy five-year-olds, self-centered six-year-olds, and the occasional semi-civilized seven-year-old. And, it will help little kids grow into self-reliant big kids who are cooperative and connected to their parents, teachers, siblings, and peers.

First Audiobook

For my first Audiobook, I thought this was a great book. The different people reading it made it easy to understand. They explained very well how a child’s point of view which was an eye opener for me. If you are looking for a starter book to help you this is great for you. My only input is that I think there needs to be a combination of way not just what is said for your child as you can easily get overwhelmed feeling this is the only way to be a better parent. I don’t regret reading this, it did teach me a lot.

Good book but chapters are all screwed up

I just started this book & the content is really helpful so far & provides a lot of helpful & creative ways for getting kids to do what you want.

However, the chapters of the audiobook are all messed up. The audiobook shows you're on chapter 3 but you're really still on chapter 1. For example, you're listening to the real chapter one & in the middle of a sentence, the audibook displays that you're now on the next chapter when you're not. This makes it super difficult to find a natural stopping point for when to stop listening. Before I realized, I stopped at the end of what it said was chapter 1 without realizing I was still in the middle of chapter 1. And it also doesn't show the names of the chapters either which makes it harder to follow along.

I got the Audible version instead from Amazon & am requesting a refund on this one. The Audible version has all the chapters correct with titles. It can be difficult to follow along to an audiobook so having the chapters all whack makes it harder.
