What NOT To Say...

What NOT To Say: Tools For Talking With Young Children

"Let's raise children who don't have to recover from their childhood"~Pam Leo

     Did you ever find yourself talking harshly with your child and feel like there has to be a better way to talk to them? Do you want to practice a more gentle and respectful parenting?Well, here's your handbook...

    In this book, Sarah MacLaughlin has chapters dedicated to phrases to avoid and provides alternate wording to use instead. She has real life stories and situations to convey the message in an easy to follow and use way. At the end of different sections and points, she also provides you with a list of books you can read to your kids in order to help them out with communication as well. 

     You will learn how to effectively speak with children to set limits, while maintaining respect for the child. You'll learn why threats, labels and confusing language can cause issues and what to say and do to avoid the pitfalls. There is SO much info packed into one tiny book. A very thorough arrangement of tips and more. 

     All in all, this is an excellent resource it have in your arsenal if you have a small child. In fact, it might be a good idea to have anyone around your kid to read this book. Parents, teachers, grandparents, caregivers. 

     The back of the book also has a nice list of books for parents to read as well, so, between that and the kids books should be set for a long while on learning for both you and your child.
