This is the new, clearer and better edited version of Glasser & Easely's last book by the same name. Although their "Nurtured Heart Approach" was started as a means of helping challenging children adjust to life with the rest of us, the methods work like a charm with children at all levels of intensity.
I thought this version was truly outstanding. The message is simple, but still profound enough to make changes throughout the family.
Without spilling all the beans, I will say that the ta

Intuitive and sensible, but something I needed to hear again. Nit-picking the positive rather than the negative; Noticing the good; energizing the desired behavior: whatever you call it, the idea is to shape behavior in a positive and supportive way rather than a domineering and punitive way. Two weeks into this, our 6 year old is reborn. He's brighter, lighter, happier. Funny enough, so am I. Yelling and "correcting" and pointing out mistakes just wears EVERYONE down.

I am taking this class right now and will go through the workbook on my own. I have seen dramatic changes with my 4 year-old when I remember to implement the principles taught. It's not specific for "difficult children" because, let's be honest, every child is intense in some way and this is a great parenting approach.

Of all the Nurtured Heart Approach books, this is the one I recommend the most often. Most parents can take this book one chapter at a time and learn to apply the approach with even the most difficult children. Even parents who are not into reading can benefit and change the atmosphere of their homes - from chaotic and stressful, to peaceful and loving. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

Recommends it for: Anyone who has a "difficult" child or spouse. =D
Recommended to Stormy by: A Teacher.

This is quite posibly the best ever way to help a difficult kid. It not only transforms the child it transforms the entire family, friends and family who begin to use it.

I read the book in two days then took the course. Outstanding.

I have a 1-year old and 4-year old, and this book is helping. it also seems to work on adult 4-year olds that present themselves to me daily for experimentation. Glasser has a somewhat preachy & annoying style, but smart and effective content.

A great reference for parents. Practical, step-by-step and with awesome metaphors. Psychoeducational must.
