3 Takeaways: 

  1. Accepting kids’ negative feelings is vital to happy, healthy relationships.
  2. Threatening kids is less effective for cultivating cooperation and creates a backwash of resentment.
  3. It’s not easy to change how you speak to your kids! We naturally want to fix their problems.

Joanna Faber and Julie King are the authors of the new book, How To Talk When Kids Won’t ListenWhining, Fighting, Meltdowns, Defiance, & Other Challenges of Childhood, as well as the best-selling book, How To Talk So Little Kids Will Listen: A Survival Guide to Life with Children Ages 2-7, which has been translated into 22 languages world-wide. They created the app HOW TO TALK: Parenting Tips in Your Pocket, a companion to their book, as well as the app Parenting Hero. Together they speak to schools, businesses and parent groups nationally and internationally, they lead “How To Talk” workshops and support groups online and in person, and provide private consultations. Joanna, a former special education teacher, has also contributed heavily to books co-authored by her mother, Adele Faber, including How To Talk So Kids Will Listen & Listen So Kids Will Talk and How To Talk So Kids Will Learn. Julie has been leading workshops for over 25 years, and has also tailored the workshop for parents and professionals who live or work with neurodiverse children. Visit Joanna and Julie at How-To-Talk.com, on Facebook @faberandking or on Instagram @howtotalk.forparents.
