Editorial Reviews

Review

"This warm, accessible, and highly practical guide will be an indispensable resource for families who are eager to find ways to thrive--together." (Gretchen Rubin #1 New York TImes bestselling author of The Happiness Project)

"This book is full of common sense and clarity and will help families mend their bridges and their ways. It is proof that we are all utterly interdependent and teaches us how to respond to one another with decency and respect." (Andrew Solomon National Book Award winning author of Far From the Tree)

"Our first and most important relationships are formed in our families. Melinda Blau encourages us to have an expansive perspective, showing child-obsessed parents how to become more family-focused and to empower their kids to form loving, resilient connections. Healthy families are the best defense against the anxieties of our modern world." (Dr. Drew Pinsky New York Times bestselling author)

“Recommended for fans of the Baby Whisperer books and for readers looking for guidance on how to strengthen their families." (Library Journal)

“Family Whispering is chockfull of solutions for parents with children who want to control the family, siblings who are long on rivalry, and for your own instinct to be a protective or Helicopter parent. The move into family-centered parenting allows everyone in the family to have a voice and be heard—precisely what is needed to raise children who thrive." (Psychology Today)

"Systems theory teach us that one individual has the power to affect a larger group. Give that individual a book like Family Whispering, and he or she will have the knowledge and the tools to positively change and impact the most basic and important group of all: the family. Thanks to Melinda and Tracy for helping to make the world a better place--one parent, one child, and now one family at a time." (Jay Morgan author of Fingerpainting in Psych Class)

“Just when I thought we didn’t need another book on making families work, I came upon this one! Filled with down home wisdom, and terrific advice, it’s the book to reach for when you’re asking the question, But what do I do?” (Harriet Lerner, Ph.D. author of The Dance of Anger and Marriage Rules)

“While the time of traditional families is long past, we’ve never felt a greater desire for practical advice on boosting happier, healthier relationships between all family members. That’s why this book is destined to be the most-consulted and comforting guide for children and adults to get along better–in whatever kind of modern family arrangement they have.” (Kare Anderson Forbes and Huffington Post contributor)

Melinda Blau brilliantly translates research on family relationships into clear, easy to read prose. She asks intriguing questions and tells colorful stories that get at the heart of what makes families work. This book is a gem–it's one that people will read and refer to over and over again." (Anita Vangelisti, Ph.D. author of Interpersonal Communication and Human Relationships)

"Family Whispering combines deep wisdom with practical tips, on a topic that couldn't be more important—how to thrive as a family. Intelligent and compassionate, this book is a call to action for a resilient new family model co-created by all of the family members and the surrounding community." (Neal Gorenflo, co-founder, Shareable.net)

"Even if moms and dads apply only 10% of what they learn in Family Whispering, they will become better parents. Packed with useful advice, charts, relatable examples, common sense, and big-hearted insights, this is a book America needs." (Sally Koslow author of Slouching Toward Adulthood)

Format: Hardcover
I really enjoyed the authors writings on how to make your whole family stronger. It is a well thought out, intelligent read. I will be keeping it on my bookcase along timeless and classic parenting books such as ‘how to speak so children listen’ ... and ‘ no regrets parenting’ i.e. books that when I delve into make me think how I parent and give me the strength to change certain behaviors and norms. Very impressed.

Having been a fan of Ms. Blau's last book, Consequential Strangers, I decided to give her new one a try. I was not disappointed. As a mental health professional, I see the results of inadequate parenting and fragmented families every day. This is a blueprint for raising your family in a healthier way. Take advantage!

This book showed me a new way of looking at my family.
It’s easy and fun to read.
Lots of stories that will feel familiar to anyone who has a family or has been part of one.
If you’re a grandmother like I am, buy copies for your adult kids and keep one for yourself.
It will help you understand how hard it is to be a parent today.

I read the Baby Whisperer 13 years ago when my son was going to be born.Tracy Hogg's loving syle of communicating with mutual respect has stuck and he is now a compassionate young man. The Family Whisperer brought all of those teachings back and widened the scope of practice by recognizing each individual in the family while moving forward as a unit.
