Editorial Reviews

Review

"A must read for parents, educators, and any other adults who want to connect in a deeply caring and positive way with the children in their lives."
-Barbara Coloroso, author of Kid's Are Worth It! Giving Your Child the Gift of Inner Discipline

"This remarkable book advises us not just how to parent, but-far more important- who to be as parents...based not on simple-minded behavioral solutions, but on building warm, nurturing relationships with our children, with insight and compassion not only for their little flaws but also for our own larger ones."
-Gabor MatT M.D., Physician and best-selling author of Scattered: How Attention Deficit Disorder Originates and What You Can Do About It

"Jennifer Kolari advocates focusing on empathy and concern for a child to encourage cooperation, enabling the possibility for constructive change."
-Carl Pickhardt, Ph.D., author of Stop the Screaming: How to Turn Angry Conflict with Your Child into Positive Communication

I am the mother of a 4 year old boy (Ms. Kolari calls his temperment "the gladiator") and a 2 year old girl. Ms. Kolari's approach really makes sense from scientific, emotional and logistical point of view and, best of all, IT WORKS! Her writing is reader friendly and humorous as well. I highly recommend "Connected Parenting" by Jennifer Kolari. I also recommend listening to some podcasts with Kolari being interviewed. She animates her examples well and brings even more clarity to her parenting philosophy. I hope she will consider an audio recording of the book. I know I am more likely to finish a book if I can listen to it while cleaning up the house!
