How to Talk So Little Kids Will Listen (2017)

A Survival Guide to Life with Children Ages 2-7.

As with the previous book, this is split into chapters for different categoric behavior and situations, with an intro, a discussion of the parental frustrations, and then ideas on how to tackle them. To aid this there are helpful cartoon illustrations of situations showing what we usually do and examples of what different things we could do to improve the situation.

This is followed by 2 to 3 example stories from the parents of what worked and sometimes things that went differently than expected. There is also a great section on working with children who may have special or specific needs and different pacing of development and the keys to recognizing ability and dealing with children who may have disabilities. This is personally my favorite chapter and as the authors state, your child does not need to be fitting these conditions for you not to benefit and I believe this to be true.

“The book is full of descriptions of real situations, complete with dialogue – this is very helpful in figuring out how the lessons apply concretely in real life.”

The Book Guide® Editor

It has a couple of sections for when the methods just don’t work. It accepts that we and the children we care for our humans and everyone is different, has different needs and reactions.


What’s great about this book, as with the other, is that it makes it clear that you are not expected to be this magical robot parent. That you have your feelings and health to consider and that while we need to learn to communicate more on a level of understanding and not damaging the child’s feelings or worsening the situation, IF and WHEN we do blow up (and we do) we can go back and fix it.
