I work with beginning teachers in a very challenging low-income, inner-city school district.
Misha's Mom
Without doubt the best book I have ever read about communicating with your child, and full of helpful ideas relating to the most common situations one encounters.
Ernest M. Feiler, MD
Shure speaks of Dr. Ginott's influence as beneficial, as do authors such as Faber, Mazlish, and Coloroso.

To the publishers of this wonderful classic book on parenting. I found this book to be THE best book I ever read on parenting. I would even go so far as to say this may be the best and clearest book on human communication skills as well. I often recommended it to couples who were having trouble with basic communication. I am a trained social worker and have read many thousands of help, psychology and growth and development books. None surpassed this great writing of Ginott. I am dismayed to find that it is out of print. I wanted to give it to my own daughter who is now raising a two year old and and doing day care for five other toddlers. It was my plan to gift her with the book that had once helped me so when she was a two year old. Please find a way to once again publish this great book of wisdom for parenting.

Format: Paperback
This book has the potential to revolutionize teaching by conserving the best advice for teachers and parents who feel the need for guidance that does not recommend despair or surrender to whim or impulsive action but provides daily strategies and methods that embody high principles with the utmost respect for students and those who work with them in building not just a basis for learning but a basis for the best in cultured, civil, courteous behavior. One example: when confronting a mess of papers, pencils, or wrappers on the floor or elsewhere, one doesn't say, "What a slob hath wrought! Or something similar. One says instead: "This mess needs to be cleaned up." Possibly with an offer to help. A book of tactics and strategy for tactful approaches to the need for the discipline that is so essential for all kinds of learning along with the mutual respect that is also necessary between and among those engaged in learning and in producing an environment where learning can take place.

I am disappointed that Ginott's books are both out of stock and out of print. I have read books by other authors who participated in workshops run by Haim Ginott. These other books were helpful to me, but I would like to read for myself the works that influenced so many. For example, Dr. Myrna B. Shure, in her book RAISING A THINKING CHILD, teaches techniques for helping children to solve problems by learning how to recognize feelings (their own and those of others) and communicate. This book has been extremely helpful to our family. Shure speaks of Dr. Ginott's influence as beneficial, as do authors such as Faber, Mazlish, and Coloroso. My six year old has learned to think of and evaluate alternatives instead of automatically throwing a tantrum and now I can model better behavior for him because of information from these other authors who were so influenced by Ginott. Please find a way to bring us Haim Ginott's works once again.

How lucky for me that I discovered Haim Ginott's "Between Parent & Child" when I was first pregnant. My daughters were raised by this standard and today I am the proud mother of two beautiful, successful, married women (27 & 28) who are now starting families of their own. One of the first things that has been requested of me was to have the same book that I used to guide me through parenting. How sad that this treasure is no longer in print.
The evidence that this book works above any others is the well-adjusted, happy, individual, and independent daughters that are now aware of the exceptional childhood they experienced. The methods used built confidence and self esteem and provided a solid foundation from which they could grow, express themselves, make decisions, take risks, become good students, and surround themselves with good friends.
Their good behavior brought attention. so bad behavior was minimal. They never had eating disorders or sleep problems. They were fun to be with and taken to restaurants, on vacations, and crowded places even as an infant. They were encouraged to have their own opinions, express their feelings and make decisions and we, as parents, listened.
From infancy they were loved, respected and treated individually as real persons. They grew up loving, respecting themselves and others.
Because of who and what my daughtersn have grown to be, I feel like the richest woman alive today. And for that, I thank Haim Ginott. He taught me how to teach my children.
To the publishers, plese print the Haim Ginott books. In this age of cyberspace, the human touch is most needed and most necessary. The next generation truly needs and deserves the teachings of Haim Ginott.
The best gift a parent can give his/her child is Haim Ginott Parenting. Please make it possible.

I have read Between Parent and Child (and its companion book, Liberated Parents, Liberated Children). I have found it to be extremely helpful in helping me to be a good parent and raise a mensch -- a centered, grounded, stable, courteous child. Dr. Ginott's advice makes sense, is reasonable to apply in day-to-day life, and is also useful in any personal relationship. It is required reading for anyone who takes their child-rearing duties seriously.
I have recommended it to many friends, especially those who are having difficulty with one or more of their children's behavior.
