9780912869001: Talking With Children

Some conversations between parents and children break down quickly for no apparent reason; others go on seemingly forever, reaching no conclusion; still others appear to be direct and reasonable yet remain somehow unsatisfying. But Ronald Reed believes that some conversations are better than others. Once we realize what sorts of people we talk with when we talk with our children, and once we discover that different kinds of talk are meant to lead to different ends, then we can begin to build the talking relationships that will better the conversations we have with our children. By formulating specific rules and making concrete suggestions for building successful parent-child conversation, Talking with Children provides the ground for those relationships.

From the Back Cover:

"Dr. Reed is not satisfied with mere descriptions of 'intergenerational communication.' He aims to clear away the underbrush of misunderstanding that so often prevents parents and children from sharing in the discovery of ideas and from achieving the increased rapport they both desire. His lucid and engaging book can be invaluable to parents and educators who are beginning to realize how much both generations can gain from learning to converse meaningfully with one another." --Matthew Lipman, Director, Institute for the Advancement of Philosophy for Children

"This book is full of keen observation and wise advice, and parents who read and heed it will gain much more knowledge, and what is more important, pleasure from the company and conversation of their children." --John Holt, editor and publisher of Growing without Schooling and author of How Children Learn
