It contained strategies that I could implement straight away.I liked the thoughts around connectedness and self-regulation. Within a few pages I was already deepening my understanding of my daughter and developing new strategies to improve our relationship.
This book provided me with a clear idea and plan for how I can help change my behavior, in order to connect more with my daughter. It also gave me a different lens for "seeing" what her behaviors are really about. Loved the research, and how I can apply the strategies within my family. Clear changes I can make within myself, and actual language I can use with my children.
After reading this book, my little boy responds so much "better" (more positively) to my own "better" behaviour. He is also expressing himself more openly and more frequently.
If you are picking this book up because you are having difficulty, you will feel inspired and filled with hope. Loads of wonderful ideas. I like that after reading through this, I have concrete ideas and ideas ready to try--start out slowly--and begin to put in place. I feel inspired and supported!
Your kind and loving voice shines through the book and I felt so comforted and supported.
This book is so kindly written it's like someone is holding my hand guiding me
This book has helped me work through my reactions toward my husband as well as my daughter and has helped me appreciate the power of a pause and a deep
breath to change the outcome of a situation. An important take away for me is so simple yet so important (and sadly can be forgotten on busy, stressful
days) -- to delight in my child. Thinking on this has helped me take a step back and let my child be who she is.
I loved it all. I love the exercises and the general ease of the text. There's nothing too high brow in the text, so a layperson with no psychological
training can understand it. It's practical, highly interesting,
candid, confronting and yet, consoling!
The whole book is a treasure, Dr. Laura! I like that in the workbook you take more time and space on explaining everything that you only touched in the
first Peaceful Parent Happy Kids book.
Every time I read this book or remember the practices,
I feel more open and calm and empathic and thus my children
are suddenly behave much better. :-)
The writing is very engaging, and relatable. It makes me feel like this was written for me personally. I feel like some of the difficulties with my son will be resolved in me just regulating my own emotions. He explodes like I do.
I love the compassion that this book shows to parents. It's clear the author is a coach who is really helping us with techniques for parenting. I really
liked how this book is written, format, and also how the text is simple and concrete, the author is knowledgeable but the language, techniques and
exercises feel approachable... I loved the step by step techniques like stop drop and breathe. The concrete techniques, examples and exercises
paired with text were perfect for me.
I felt so loved and hopeful reading this and I imagine that's how other parents will feel. Your love was reaching through the pages to my heart!
I actually forgot I was reading a parenting book. It really places the change on the parent to better assist the kids when chaos breaks loose. The book helped me realize Peaceful Parenting starts from within. I create the end of the beginning problem. If treat them as I want to be treated and speak calmly and connect with them before I correct it makes all the difference. This book opens your eyes to ones self. That is where it starts.
Recognizing my own triggers allowed me some wait time before responding, which was a good strategy to be reminded of. After a meltdown my 13 year old acknowledged feeling bad for overreacting. That was different!
Your manner is so gentle. It's like a good friend or kind family member speaking from a place of love and care, not criticism. It's one of your consistent strengths that this tone comes across in your writing even though I haven't met you. It feels authentic.
My kids can sometimes get a little over-tired and crazy in the lead up to bedtime, running around and laughing rather than doing what I've asked them to do. I have found that using your mantras like "They're acting kids because they're kids" or "Don't take it personally" helps me to stay calm.
Such a change! I have been reading the book and doing the worksheets and before the book my temper was starting to get shorter and shorter and I was recognizing
it, but because of the crankiness in me I wasn't motivated to change it. Then I started reading and BOOM I'm calmer and making sense of my children's
behaviors! So my son (2.5 years) has moments of upset and attitude like any toddler, well my daughter (5 months) got sick and I was up with her all
night then the next day my son missed his nap and we were all worn down. It was bedtime and he was in full scream mode, didn't want daddy, mommy, cuddles,
food, drink, Milkies, nothing! But I just said "This isn't an emergency; you are allowed to cry and tell me what's wrong," and just like that, I kept
myself completely calmed the whole 30 min or more he was out of sorts! And this was an epic meltdown, I haven't seen him behave like that in a very
long time. It felt so good to be level headed and in control while comforting my son!!! Man that feels nice. I actually felt like I knew what I was
doing, and that my son was safe and just needed to vent.
