The Power of A Parent's Words
How You Can Use Loving, Effective Communication to Increase your Child's Self-esteem and Reduce the Frustrations of ParentingBook - 1991
Your Words can bruise-or build. Have you ever felt wounded or destroyed by cruel words that somebody said to you? Now imagine what children feel like when their parents-the people children most want to please, use communication carelessly. In The Power of a Parent's Words Norm Wright will show you how to recognize dysfunctional patterns you may have inherited from your own parents, learn healthy, functional methods of communication, discover your child's personality type, understand his or her unique communication style, and apply that knowledge to your daily interactions.
