And boom - she completely calmed down. She sat next to me without saying anything, but I could tell, she was finally feeling what she was feeling -- rather than being upset and fighting to claim her right to feel what she was feeling, if that makes sense. And that was that. She stopped being upset and ate her broken candy cane.
There are so many other examples like this -- the 'one word' tip, the 'describe it/don't tell them what to do' tip, the 'write a wish list together' tip... I could go on. They really work!
I would definitely recommend. I will continue reading and hopefully update the review.

This was published in the ‘80’s though, so a few of the examples are ridiculous by today’s parenting standards and the examples of what to say sound really dated. That doesn’t really take anything away from the usefulness of the book and might even give you a laugh or two.
