5.0 out of 5 stars Completely Changed Our Relationship, November 24, 2008
This review is from: Connection Parenting: Parenting Through Connection Instead of Coercion, Through Love Instead of Fear, 2nd Edition (Paperback)
I have two daughters; the elder is 3 and a half and the baby is 10 months old. After the birth of my second daughter, I started to notice more "attention-seeking" behavior from my older daughter. A friend recommended Pam's book, and actually got me enrolled in a teleseminar with Pam Leo through [...]

I was amazed, as I put the principles into practice, the immediate and LASTING changes that my daughter and I both experienced. As I learned new ways to relate to what she was feeling, she learned to trust me more. And as I learned more of the reasons behind some of her behaviors, I learned to trust her more.

Before reading this book, I probably spent about 75% of my time with my daughter yelling. I work 40 hours a week, so we don't get to see each other all day every day, either. The time we have together is so precious to me, but I was completely yelling it away, because of my own frustration at her lack of cooperation. I have learned new ways to respond, new ways to head off a lack of cooperation before it even starts. Now, my daughter looks for ways to help me before I even ask.

I recommend this book to every parent. It should be required reading before you have kids :)
