Item Description...
Describes ways parents can effectively communicate with their children to build self-esteem and encourage self-responsibility.

Publishers Description
Do you find yourself in those maddening situations where you sound like a broken record when talking to your child? Your preschooler won't decide what she wants to wear, regardless of how many times you insist that she just choose; your struggling third grader says "I can't do math," and your "Sure you can " reassurance falls like a dead weight; your daughter smears on black eyeliner just before the bus arrives, and your daily protests are muted by hers.
In "Parent Talk, " a must-have for every parent with a preschool to high school-age child, Chick Moorman tells you what to say so that you can communicate more effectively -- and peacefully -- with your child in every circumstance, including:
  • The morning mad dash to dress, eat, and leave the house on time
  • The nightly struggle to focus on homework
  • The endless car ride of exhaustion-induced whining
  • The meltdown in the mall

    For instance, Moorman's antidote to the "I can't" loop is "Act as if you've done this before." With Moorman's help, you'll learn the words to use and the words to avoid to end power struggles and the fruitless conversation loops you're stuck in.

    very helpful book  Apr 27, 2007
    My life was a syntax error before I read this book. I have an older child that I had no troubles with whatsoever, and I was afraid my youngest was a "problem child". Thanks to Chick Moorman, I found out he is NOT a problem child at all, he just responds to the type of language that Moorman explains in the book. It does make a huge difference. If you're having troubles with your kids, this book could change your life.
    Excellent Communication Tool  Mar 24, 2007
    Great tool for all parents to learn how to communicate with their kids to bring out the best in them.
    Best book I've read.  Jul 1, 2006
    This is best book I've read to teach communication skills to children. Results are immediate. Awesome!
    How to destroy your relationship with your kids  Apr 29, 2006
    Regrettably, I bought this book (for one cent) based on the strong reviews. I will never put so much credence in reviews again. This would definitely not be one that you would thumb through at the bookstore and buy. The author appears to have been introduced to child psychology about five minutes before writing this book. His methodology is extremely juvenile and naive. His whole approach is to have an arsenal of canned phrases that you tell your kid for various circumstances.

    This doesn't sound like a bad thing at first until you find out what unimaginative over-simplistic blabber that "Chick" offers. I could point out samples from every page of the first 25 that I read and the dozen or so others that I then skimmed through. Just quoting this pansy-ass fluff turns my stomach. Here is a story he tells a speaker who was distracted by a couple of kids talking at a lecture...

    "Frowning, he looked at them and very quietly said 'I'm feeling distracted by your behavior. Please make a different choice.' By telling these students to make a different choice the speaker used language that communicated respect. His message informed them 'I see you as responsible for your own actions. You control your behavior. You choose your responses to life.'

    Every page has this same sickening tone to it. If you want to avoid reality and miss the opportunities to affect your children in a way that builds self-esteem and confidence in them with real heart to heart interaction and instead gum them up with garbage talk then this book is for you. Otherwise, to quote the author "PLEASE MAKE A DIFFERENT CHOICE" and find a better book or just use your own intuition and common sense. This book teaches you how to destroy relationships by talking in mumbo jumbo out of the side of your mouth, while trying to keep a straight face. A one star rating gives this comic book way too much credit.
    Parent Talk: How to Talk to Your Children in Language That B  Jan 18, 2004
    This is a great book! After 20 years of working with children, I thought I knew all the ways to speak to a child. But this book has given me new insight into the impact that our words have on children. It shows examples of how we inadvertently teach our children 'learned helplessness' and ways to teach them the process of making decisions, handling everyday happenings, and to make their own choices. I have also been amazed at how the advice in this book works with my teenager! So I ventured a step further and have used the advice in this book with co-workers, too, with some amazing results! It is easy to read and refer back to when necessary. Every parent should have a copy of this book handed to them when their children are born.
