Adele Faber and Elaine Mazlish are internationally acclaimed, award-winning experts on parent-child communication. Their books have sold over three million copies and have been printed in over twenty languages. Their lectures and workshops draw thousands, and their audio and video group workshop programs have been used worldwide. Both authors have three grown children and live in Long Island, New York.From AudioFile:
The authors have written and recorded before about parenting, and it's hard not to respond to their optimism and energy as they talk about how to handle difficult children. The focus is on difficulty, not pathology, so what they talk about are things like excessive arguing, entitlement, maintaining order, and keeping one's own emotional balance when in battle. The authors act out many parent-child dialogues and, for many ears, these scenes will be too lengthy and annoying to serve their purpose. But the central ideas about parenting challenges make the program worthwhile, as long as one doesn't expect a detailed guide or anything beyond the handling of a normally difficult child.
