If you’re a parent, you’ve likely had conversations that have shocked you with how badly they went. The same kidwho asked “why” non-stop at age four suddenly stops talking to you around age 12. And the conversations thatyou wish you could have—ones fueled by your desire to see your kid not just safe and healthy, but passionatelyengaged— feel painfully impossible to execute. The good news is that better conversations with your kids in yourcontrol. Effective communication can be cultivated, learned, and taught. As you get better at this, so will your kids.William Stixrud, Ph.D., and Ned Johnson have 60 years combined experience talking to kids one-on-one.
The mostcommon question they get when speaking to parents and educators is: What do you say? While many adultsunderstand the importance and power of the philosophies behind the books that dominate the parentingbestseller list, parents are often left wondering how to put those concepts into action.
In What Do You Say?: Howto Talk with Kids to Build Motivation, Stress Tolerance, and a Happy Home, Dr. Stixrud and Mr. Johnson show howto engage in respectful and effective dialogue, beginning with defining and demonstrating the basic principles oflistening and speaking. They share new ways to handle specific, thorny topics of the sort that usually end inparent/kid standoffs: delivering constructive feedback to kids; discussing boundaries around technology;explaining sleep and their brains; the anxiety of current events; and family problem-solving.
