This book is worth a million bucks. It has changed my parenting style so much. Using the methods has quickly shown improvement in the relationship to my child and his behavior. I can recommend it to any parent out there.
This is the book I needed to read. It's not just another book that says things like: '...Now I am going to tell you about the right ways you should parent you children, etc... . (making me feel even more of a complete failure as parent ...) Dr. Markham advocates compassion and non-judgementalness as a parenting style and she addresses the readers (parents) in the same non-judgmental, compassionate way. I am somebody, who feels chronically guilty about the smallest event. The guilt made me a very stressed-out parent and the stress created distance between me and my child - lately it was just 'getting through the days' - leaving little space for joy. So I looked for some help, support, inspiration and found this book. The connection between parents and children, that this book speaks about is the solution for me (AHA!)! After only one day of connecting again with my child, she became a child that wants to cooperate. The reward for re-connecting to my child, and to life in general is the joy in the house and much reduced stress! The other thing the book has really helped me with, is the idea of 'radical self care'! (love the word!). Thank you, Dr. Laura Markham!
Kaufen! Am besten schon in der Schwangerschaft. Das Buch ist das beste und wertvollste das ich bisher gekauft habe. Es hilft einen die Menschen um einen rum und seine eigenen Kinder zu verstehen und vor allem hilft es nicht zu schreien oder die Stimme erheben zu müssen, damit das Kind hört und somit die Beziehung zu seinen Kindern nicht zu zerstören.Ganz lieben Dank an diese wundervolle Autorin.
