Editorial Reviews

Review

"Kim Fredrickson's new parenting book is a compilation of some of themost effective parent training materials I have ever been exposed to. Ihave had the privilege of sitting in her classes and teaching alongsideher. You will find the material and advice to be practical, based onsound research, and easy to understand. Parents regularly comment thatKim's teaching frees them to experience child care in a more positiveand meaningful light."
~ Kenneth Logan, PsyD, Psychologist and Professor of Counselor Education, Western Seminary, Portland

"Kim's wise advice helped me learn how to validate a teen's opinion even when I disagreed with him or her. I learned to move from teaching teens tocoaching them. These skills and others helped me to foster truerelationships with my own children and now enhance my relationships with them as adults. In fact, the concepts are so valuable, I use these same skills to inform my counseling practice."
~ Carol Karkazis, Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, Roseville, CA

"Kim shares practical advice that is simple, makes sense, and issome-thing you can do. Her motto regarding parenting is 'It's all aboutthe relation-ship,' and she offers guidance to develop a compassionaterelationship with your kids. Her principles are in line with raisingresponsible and respectful children."
~ Betty Koons, Teacher and Mom
