30th Anniversary Edition

Updated with new insights from the next generation

You can stop fighting with your children! Here is the bestselling book that will give you the know-how you need to be more effective with your children — and more supportive of yourself. Enthusiastically praised by parents and professionals around the world, the down-to-earth, respectful approach of Adele Faber and Elaine Mazlish makes relationships with children of all ages less stressful and more rewarding. Now, in this thirtieth-anniversary edition, these award-winning experts share their latest insights and suggestions based on feedback they've received over the years.

Their methods of communication — illustrated with delightful cartoons showing the skills in action — offer innovative ways to solve common problems. You'll learn how to:

* Cope with your child's negative feelings — frustration, disappointment, anger, etc.

* Express your anger without being hurtful

* Engage your child's willing cooperation

* Set firm limits and still maintain goodwill

* Use alternatives to punishment

* Resolve family conflicts peacefully

Review:

Review:

“An excellent book that’s applicable to any relationship.” Washington Post

Review:

“Practical, sensible, lucid…the approaches Faber and Mazlish lay out are so logical you wonder why you read them with such a burst of discovery.” Family Journal

Review:

“An exceptional work, not simply just another ‘how to’ book….All parents can use these methods to improve the everyday quality of their relationships with their children.” Fort Worth Star Telegram

About the Author

Adele Faber and Elaine Mazlish are internationally acclaimed experts on communication between adults and children. Their first book, Liberated Parents/Liberated Children, received the Christopher Award for “literary achievement affirming the highest values of the human spirit.” Their subsequent books, How to Talk So Kids Will Listen & Listen So Kids Will Talk and the #1 New York Times bestseller Siblings Without Rivalry, have sold over three million copies and have been translated into over thirty languages. Their book, How to Talk So Kids Can Learn - At Home and in School, was cited by Child Magazine as the “best book of the year for excellence in family issues in education.” The authors’ group workshop programs and videos produced by PBS are currently being used by parent and teacher groups around the world to improve relationships with children. Their most recent book, How to Talk So Teens Will Listen & Listen So Teens Will Talk, tackles the tough problems of the teenage years.

Both authors studied with the late child psychologist, Dr. Haim Ginott, and are former members of the faculty of the New School for Social Research in New York and The Family Life Institute of Long Island University. In addition to their frequent lectures throughout the United States, Canada and abroad, they have appeared on every major television talk show from Oprah to Good Morning America.
