“Dr. Gelb is quite literal when she calls this a “Life Guide” – reading it was like having my own personal guided tour through the ups and downs of parenting!I felt so held as I went through the exercises in the book.
I especially loved the writing prompts – they helped me to absorb the material SO much faster, and I was able to immediately apply what I’d learned. As a babysitter, it’s important for me to be able to communicate effectively with both kids and parents. Now I can relate much better to the struggles of the parents, and I feel more confident in my ability to maintain discipline with the kids. Hallelujah!”
“This guide moves you quickly through reflecting on how you were parented, your current parenting practices, and how you want to parent moving forward. This process was deep, powerful and surprisingly, not painful — even when I discovered where my parenting style is the root of my frustration with my teens!
Dr. Gelb’s Life Guide on “How To Get Your Kids To Cooperate” reminds us that our children are reflections of how we show up and parent — and gives us simple, dynamic tools to improve.”
“Your guidebooks are gems.”
