America's leading experts on parent-child communication reveal how parents and teachers can work together to open kids' minds to enjoyable learning
From the heralded authors of the multimillion-copy best-seller How To Talk So Kids Will Listen & Listen So Kids Will Talk comes a breakthrough book showing parents and teachers how to handle one of the burning issues of our day: how to motivate kids to succeed in school, at a time when schools are rife with violence and many students are openly rebellious.
Adele Faber and Elaine Mazlish developed this book in response to constant requests to adapt the unique communications strategies that hallmark their books, lectures, and audiovisual workshops to specific concerns of the classroom. To do so, they teamed up with two award-winning teachers who well know the problems of our faltering school system.
This book utilizes the dramatically effective "dialogue" technique (what to say and how and when to say it) that has made Faber and Mazlish's work famous worldwide. It also features engaging "right and wrong" cartoons that show how to handle typical learning situations so kids will be inspired to do their best.
Each chapter includes questions and answers and stories from parents and teachers that illustrate how both have successfully used this method to help kids handle the schoolwork, behavioral, and peer problems that interfere with learning. In every chapter there is a one-page "quick reminder" that sums up that chapter's salient points for speedy reference.
How To Talk So Kids Can Learn is truly a landmark book, sure to be eagerly welcomed by all parents and teachers who seek to inspire kids to be self-directed, self-disciplined, and responsive to the wonders of learning.
