by Susan Stiffelman, MFT —

Children can be our greatest teachers, and Stiffelman, a parenting expert, writes that the very behaviors that push our buttons — refusing to cooperate or ignoring our requests — can help us build awareness and shed old patterns, allowing us to raise our children with greater ease and enjoyment.

Stiffelman does more than claim that peaceful parenting is possible.

She shows parents how to stop trying to control their children with bribes and threats so they can create real harmony in their familys’ lives.

And she helps parents recognize when their own marriages, health or job issues are hurting their relationships with their children.

She shows how to create the kind of connection that leads kids to want to talk to their parents and cooperate with them.

The book is filled with practical advice, powerful exercises and fascinating stories from her clinical work.

Stiffelman teaches us how to become the parents we most want to be, while raising confident, caring children.
