- Imagine a life where your toddler or preschooler is happy to do what you ask, and is able to move on, easily, when disappointed.
- Imagine getting all of your housework done while your child plays, or happily helps alongside you.
- Imagine truly enjoying your time with your child, and creating a life that feels fulfilling for both of you.
“These things are possible for parents and children,” asserts author Faith Collins, even with a child who is extra sensitive, demanding, needy, belligerent, or all at the same time.
Collins is a preschooler teacher, parent coach and mother, who has witnessed such transformations repeatedly over many years. Her book is a treasury that provides readers with powerful, practical and positive tools to achieve harmony and joy in their own families.
The unique contribution of this book is its focus on creating a mutually responsive relationship—meaning that people respond quickly and positively to each other, even when they cannot do what the other person wants. In a warm and easygoing style, the author guides parents and caregivers in establishing and maintaining such mutually responsive relationships with their young ones, creating the basis for discipline, education, socialization and a happier life together. Helping our children to develop these skills becomes a game-changer in all parentchild dynamics.
Rare and precious! Faith’s book will very likely leave you feeling, “Yes, I can do this.”
—Kim John Payne, author: Simplicity Parenting.
