    I came from an extremely abusive home and was too afraid to have children – afraid that I would be a statistic and abuse my own children. A very dear friend gave me this book and coupled with great counseling, I gradually rose above my fears and raised three successful and happy children. I read this book from cover to cover – I had to totally learn a new way of thinking, responding, and feeling. I read it often to keep it fresh in my mind and heart. I broke the abuse chain – I am proud of this. This book gave me the tools to do it! This book gave me the inspiration and guidance needed to be the mother I wanted to be. The reason I wrote this review today, is that my 25 yr old daughter wants to buy this book before she has children – she remembered me talking about it, reading it, and singing it’s praises as I raised her. I can’t give you a better review than three happy well adjusted young adults and one very happy and content Mom. This book changed all of our lives. Good luck and good parenting, Deb

    Ginott Helped Me Change the Way I Talk to My Kids, November 19, 2004

    I suddenly realized one day that much of the time I was talking to my three young children (the people I care the most about) in a way that I wouldn’t speak to my worst enemy…yelling, threatening, constantly nagging and searching for stricter punishments to help change their behavior…none of which seemed to be working the majority of the time. I really wanted some guidance to help me change my discipline approach. This book was highly recommended to me by my mother who used the principles on me and my sisters as well as in her classroom and I finally decided to take a look at it, especially since it has been recently updated and revised. This book has changed my life. I see why Ginott’s book is a true classic…It makes so much sense and has taught me a way of communicating respectfully with my children without becoming a wimpy parent. One of the keys to this philosophy is that it is permissive with feelings but not with misbehavior. I am getting more cooperation from my children without resorting to fear, guilt or spanking. I have learned how helpful it is to acknowledge a child’s feelings along with giving clear limits and boundaries. As an added bonus…I have noticed that the insight and skills in this book have helped me communicate and solve problems more successfully with my husband as well as with my boss. I am really feeling good about the positive changes. If you have preschoolers, I also highly recommend an A-Z companion to this book, callled “The Pocket Parent.” Ginott is quoted several times and the book is based on the very same philosophy while addressing most of the troublesome behaviors parents face daily with 2-5 year olds. Both books are filled with practical commonsense techniques that we sometimes forget are options as parents.

    Best Behavioral Development Book I have Ever Read, August 29, 2003

    This review is from: Between Parent and Child: The Bestselling Classic That Revolutionized Parent-Child Communication (Paperback)

    While this book was originally written a number of years ago, the concepts are time-tested and true to anyone looking to foster the best possible environment for their child. Ginot talks a lot about his experience with children (as a child psychiatrist) and is very effective in relaying how a child thinks, feels and behaves in response to our words, actions and inaction.

    The book makes logical sense in how not only children, but some adults perceive the world around them. I currently have two year old twin boys and I have incorporated some of Dr. Ginot’s recommendations and I am AMAZED at the difference it has made in the response of my boys. For example, if a child is doing something they are not suppossed to, like hitting a glass table with a plastic golf club (this is a true example), instead of just saying “Paul, do not hit the glass table with your golf club,” you say, “Paul, we may not hit the table with the golf club but you can hit the ground or your golf ball with the club,” the child responds differently because he knows the acceptable as well as the unacceptable, which defines the boundaries for him. In my case, Paul continued to hit the table when I failed to define the boundaries for him but when I relayed the message to him in a way that defined boundaries, he stopped hitting the table (and has not to thie day – 6 weeks later, whereas it was a 2-3 times a week occurance).

    I have read at least a dozen other “child raising” books and if I had to narrow it down to one, this would be it…by a long shot!
