I don't even have kids, and this book is transforming my entire life! It is an excellent guide for communication for ALL beings--not just children, although parents and their kids especially would benefit. If you don't know how to cope with child-rearing in a way that is neither too lax nor punitive, this book offers many marvelous tools for a path which transcends the usual ways parents interact with their children. Moreover, the techniques offered reveal the miraculous, cooperative, creative inner resources of children. It makes parenting actually sound like an incredible adventure, for removing so much of what i find threatening about it and offering so many practical paths toward its true potential.
