Voice Lessons for Parents:What to Say How to Say it and When to Listen Wendy Mogel
Renowned speaker, parenting expert, and New York Times best-selling author of The Blessing of a Skinned Knee, Dr. Wendy Mogel offers an essential guide to the new art of talking to children and shows how a change in voice can transform conversations and ease the relationship between parents and children. Dr. Wendy Mogel’s New York Times best seller, The Blessing of a Skinned Knee is the bedside bible for a generation of parents. Several years ago Mogel began giving ´´voice lessons” to parents who were struggling with their kids, demonstrating how a shift in tone, tempo, and body language led to a surprising outcome: the children responded by cooperating with greater alacrity and communicating with more warmth, respect, and sincerity. As the parents found their voices, so did the children. In Voice Lessons, Mogel elaborates on this novel clinical approach, revealing how each age and stage of a child’s life brings new opportunities to connect through language. Delving into sources as diverse as neuroscience, fairy tales, and anthropology, Mogel offers specific guidance for talking to children across the expanse of childhood and adolescence. She also explains the best ways to talk about your child to grandparents, partners, and exes and to teachers, coaches, and caretakers. Throughout the book, Mogel addresses an obstacle that flummoxes even the most seasoned and confident parent: the distraction of digital devices, how they impact our connection with our families, and what we can do about it. With the transformative power of the classics How to Talk So Kids Will Listen and Listen So Kids Will Talk and You Just Don’t Understand, Voice Lessons enlightens parents. ´´Children will lead you on an incredible journey”, writes Mogel, ´´if they trust you, if you make the time, and if you are willing to follow.” PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying re 1.

These are no longer the happy days for kids in America. School shootings, drugs and alcohol, and premature promiscuous sex are only symptoms of a toxic culture run rampant. Let´s face the fact that the Disney song ´´It´s a Small World After All´´ no longer hold true. It is a big world and a dangerous world for kids growing up today. Raising Teens in a Toxic World is a guidebook to help parents navigate their way through the passage we call adolescence. Its goal is not to tell parents what to think. Its goal is to get them to think...to parent consciously...and confidently. The audiobook is loaded with both strategies and tactics that are practical, achievable, and powerful. It was popular to say a few years back that it took a village to raise a child. Today´s village has a toxic sewer running down Main Street and many children are playing either in it or along its edges. The question all of us ask as we read about Colombine, Sandy Hook, Pearl, Mississippi is where were the parents? They were there...but so was the toxic culture that teaches that violence is fun, sex is sport, and drugs are cool. The last nation that taught its children that violence was fun was ancient Rome...and now the USA. Boxing has now been replaced by ´´Ulitmate Fighting Championships´´. Monopoly has been replaced by point-and-shoot video games. We are in a rush to legalize marijuana. This book, written by a dad whose daughter got caught up in this ´´culture of death´´, contains lessons learned the hard way...in the classroom of life itself. It is an important audiobook for today´s parents. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Alex Zonn. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/006788/bk_acx0_006788_sample.mp3.
