Book Giveaway #32: How To Talk So Kids Can Learn At Home And In School

Today’s Book: How To Talk So Kids Can Learn At Home And In School by Adele Faber & Elaine Mazlish

The authors of this book had Dr. Haim Ginott as a mentor before they started writing books.

Let us a peek at “The Source”. – here is a quote from the book ‘Teacher and Child’ by Dr. Ginott:

I have come to a frightening conclusion.
I am the decisive element in the classroom.
It is my personal approach that creates the climate.
It is my daily mood that makes the weather.
As a teacher I possess tremendous power to make a child’s life miserable or joyous.
I can be a tool of torture or an instrument of inspiration.
I can humiliate or humor, hurt or heal.
In all situations, it is my response that decides whether a crisis
will be escalated or de-escalated, and a child humanized or de-humanized.

Now replace the word teacher with parent and these lines maybe taken as a powerful “Source Document” on how to talk to children.

Authors Adele Faber & Elaine Mazlish had mastered the art of further simplifying these values in an easy Do-It-Yourself format. Their books found worldwide acclaim getting translated in over 30 languages.

The book is collection of real-life stories and questions and answers with easy to read illustrations.

Happy Parenting!
