What a wonderful book! It delivers practical yet transforming ideas gently. There is no judgement in its pages, only compassion and real understanding. If you wish to find a way to parent the way you dreamed of when you first held your baby in your arms this is the book.- S. Pearson

Best discipline book I've read! Putting them into practice and already seeing a huge difference in how our toddler responds to us and handles tantrums. We've also learned to get a better grip on our emotions. Great, practical tips (with research to back it up) for all ages!  - JennaMichelle

If only this book could be issued to all parents-to-be, the world would probably be a brighter place. I am so glad I found this book and can't wait for my husband to finish reading it too. It's great to find a parenting book based on actual research, by an actual professional, rather than the countless books with misleading, and often harmful, information. Thank you Laura Markham! - Jenni Craggs

My son recently turned 2 and it seemed overnight, he became easily frustrated and had a hard time calming down. There have also been times where he would not listen to me (like running away in public), and our time together would become a battle. I just knew there had to be a better way, but wasn't sure what to do. I've always considered myself (or aspired to be) a "peaceful parent," but that's not how I grew up, so I wasn't sure what to model for him. Well, this book has given me the tools and it's been an eye-opener! It's an easy read, and it explains so much! Instead of reacting to everything, PAUSE (the book tells you how, ha ha)! I've noticed a major difference in just a week--with myself, my marriage, and my son! Now, I get to be the parent I've always wanted to be: one who really enjoys her child and has internal peace. I always admired those moms at church who had 8 kids and seemed unfazed by the little things. Here I have one child, and couldn't seem to center myself. This book has been it for me! Being a peaceful parent can be achieved, fellow Moms and Dads!  - Mrs. UGA Roberta

I am about half way through the book and have started using some of the techniques that it teaches. I have already noticed a difference in how my daughter and I are interacting with each other. Highly recommend this book! - Coley

I saw immediate results with my 4 year old when I changed MY parenting to Dr. Markham's suggestions. I was glad to finally come across a book that focused on parents changing to work in unison with their children rather than forcing my child to adapt to my then, not so correct parenting. - Hal

Great Book. Just get it and don't think twice, especially if you are having trouble with your kids(s) or your own anger management and how to effectively deal with it. - M. Siler

This book has helped me to connect with my children. It has wonderful information in it on how to be more loving with our children and how to support their emotional needs. I have almost stopped yelling in the house and I feel so much more connected to my boys. I can tell that they feel the same way and are listening to me more. It's amazing. - Karen Nicholson

I am kind hearted and not a yeller by nature and with my strong willed/high emotional needs child, I was feeling overwhelmed and at the end of my rope. Yelling and spanking were being suggested to me to deal with my son and it didn't feel right and it wasn't working! Now I know that I can be my loving self and I have the tools to work with my son in a way that doesn't ask me to change myself in negative ways (harden my heart and just become more strict, etc.) Thank you. I wish I had found this book when my son was an infant. At least we get to start going in a positive direction at 3 1/2 years. My husband has also completely jumped on board and I am so in love with all the positive changes he has made. Empathic limits has strengthened our entire family relationship. If you're a mom like me, then you need to do yourself and your children a favor and read this book. Life changing! -AArana

Although this book is based on accepted, current, scientific work, Laura Markham's humanity, experience and practicality shine through. I swear this book has made me a better grandparent. It helped me see the world through the little ones' eyes and carefully suggested strategies, scripts and thoughts which have directly helped me sail through some rough waters with my grandchildren. Soon after reading the book, I had an encounter with one of my grandkids, one who has difficulties with many tasks and melts down very easily, even at age 7. He burst into tears when I reminded him to go to the bathroom before we left the house. I was puzzled by this response, and had an instinct to dig in my heels and respond with annoyance and strictness. Instead, I thought, "What would Laura do?" I actually felt myself at peace as I pulled back and said with some humor that boy, he really, really didn't want to go to the bathroom, but he had not had an accident in years, so it didn't seem worth a battle. I said that I was surprised at his reaction, but something clearly must be bothering him, so we could skip it or did he have another suggestion about what to do. Suddenly, he calmed down, radiated gratitude for my acknowledgement of his distress. He suggested that if he could take his coat off, it would be much easier and off he pranced to do so. Laura's voice in my head, her examples, humor, equanimity and solid scientific basis--all made me love this book. I bought one for each of my adult kids, whose children range from newborn to age 8--something in there for everyone.- Diane Ruben

My daughter reacts so much better when I empathize and stay patient. And now I get to model that behavior instead of letting my frustration get the better of me.
