“I was a wonderful parent before I had children.”
Adele Faber, How to Talk So Kids Will Listen & Listen So Kids Will Talk

“Let us be different in our homes. Let us realize that, along with food, shelter, and clothing, we have another obligation to our children, and that is to affirm their “rightness.” The whole world will tell them what’s wrong with them—loud and often. Our job is to let our children know what’s right about them.”
Adele Faber, How to Talk So Kids Will Listen and Listen So Kids Will Talk

“When we give children advice or instant solutions, we deprive them of the experience that comes from wrestling with their own problems.”
Adele Faber and Elaine Mazlish, How To Talk So Kids Will Listen
