This has been the only book I have ever read that hit a huge cord within me and stayed. The messages and insights will stay with you long after you've put the book down. We have stopped watching TV with our kids during the week and instead talk, play games, go on walks and enjoy each other's company. We have learned to destress our house and focus on happiness. My husband and I have reconnected and our family is happier as a whole. This book, if you allow it to, can teach you miraculous things. Shmuley Boteach is an incredible rabbi, teacher, husband and above all, father. This book is worth 10 times it's price. Thank you Shmuley Boteach!!

This is one of the first parenting books I have read that actually came through for me. I have had more conversations with my 5 and 7-year-old children in the past 6 months than ever because I truly know what to say. And I have to say, they are conversing back. If you are looking for a book to teach you how to be a better person-parent, friend, co-worker, etc., this is the book. I think the author sold himself short by including children in the title because I think anyone could gain from reading it.

There are few books that you read that have a lasting impact on your life, thoughts, outlook and can actually change your day to day behaviors.....this is one of those books.

This book is about the conversations you need to have with your children, but parents should heed the wisdom from these pages. For parents to be role models for the younger generation, they can only influence their children's behavior through their own actions. This book outlines the steps to take, using real life examples. Although at first glance it seems easy, it may take 2-3 reads to fully digest the entire book.

I praise Shmuley for another great book. Thank you.

Great book for anyone with children! I would highly recommend this. To my husband and I, it was a life changing book, not only in the way we want to raise our children, but in the way we want to live our lives. I plan on reading Shmuley's other books!

I was so struck by this book I could not put it down. I talked to everyone I know about the concepts in the book and have already passed it along to my son who has two children. I need to purchase 2 more now, one for my nail technician and one for me to keep until the next time I give it away.

I would have given it 5 stars if there had been nothing religious contained in it. Every person interested in raising confident well adjusted children, grandchildren should enjoy this book. Its an easy read and a subject close to everyones heart.

I am a high school teacher, and in my opinion this makes a wonderful gift, particularly for parents of pre-teens and teenagers. Parenting is the most important job a person ever has, and this is a good manual to help you in that job.

The theme of 10 Conversations You Need to Have With Your Children by Shmuley Boteach is to teach your children to find their own way in the world by listening to their own, unique, inner voices. It's a great message for all parents.

Boteach stresses the importance of interaction with your children. He says that everything that happens in life provides an opportunity for conversation, and you shouldn't overlook those opportunities; rather, you should train yourselves to see them.

All parents can learn from Boteach's book that making the investment in children by conversing with them and teaching them their uniqueness will reap rewards. Work on motivating your children to hear their inner voices, and it will inspire them to become better people. Boteach says, "Success is never immediate, and sometimes it's nowhere in evidence, but talking to your kids really works."

Boteach's book also has four great lessons for improving communication skills with everyone you live with or work with. These are Boteach's four lessons:

1. You can control your emotions by controlling your actions. When you force yourself to behave in a certain way, even if you don't feel it, the action creates the emotion.

2. The foundation of every relationship and interaction you have is the "desire to know". Much of Boteach's advice is based on the premise that you have to find ways to be stimulated every day, and your relationships and interactions are a source of stimulation.

3. The world will be a kinder, gentler place if we each honor and exhibit what Boteach identifies as the "feminine qualities" we all have within ourselves, such as peacefulness, tenderness, nurturing, and relationship-building.

I've seen Shmuley on TLC's "Shalom in the Home" and I really like the advice and counsel he gives on the show. When I saw that he also wrote books, I decided to check this one out. I ended up reading this book in one day. I could not put it down.

Shmuley uses situations from his own life raising eight children as well as stories from the people he meets to illustrate the importance of a parent's role in their child's life. He has inspired me to be a better role model for my children, and also inspired me not to be afraid to discuss some of these critical topics with my children. This book has had a HUGE impact on how I look at my role as a parent: not simply as making my kids do what I want, but inspiring them to be the best individuals they can be. To discuss these deeply important topics, like what kind of person they want to be, the importance of dignity and forgiveness, being happy, how to ignite their passion for knowledge... these are critical things we simply are NOT teaching our children, which I believe is the reason why so many children have such a hard time dealing with the challenges of life today.

This book has also helped me see that I can integrate these concepts into my own life to be an inspiration for my children. Many people tend to focus on Shmuley's Jewish beliefs, which he clearly articulates in this book. Come on! He's a Rabbi! Would you expect him NOT to write about them?? I am not Jewish nor Christian. I choose not to label or identify myself with any organized religion. Shmuley writes in the last chapter about the importance of teaching children about God. He gives very compelling reasons why this is important. He also gives examples of how America was founded "Under God," which is true.
