Listening to Adele and Elaine was a big rough on the ears, but they provide such valuable insight into parenting that it's worth it. And I suppose their voices have stuck in my mind along with their advice! Well worth the listen.
"Summery of 'How to Talk'"
If you listened to 'How to Talk', you don't need this one. A lot of stuff are the same.
"For practical applications"
This book is by far the best parenting book I have read. Many parenting books talk about why children behave and talk in certain ways without recommendations on what to do. This book is full of practical applications. I put ticket only liked various demonstrations of how things typically go versus what we could do differently. I would recommend this book to anyone who are struggling as to how to talk to their kids.
"Real life book"
Real kids behavior problems
Real applicable solutions
Very helpful to us
I strongly recommend it

"Great condensed content and cases, it seemed my own story!"
Don't think this book is incomplete because it lasts only one hour! The theory is easily explained as a case studio. I used the techniques the very same day I heard it. Now I am listening a second time, and my wife is too.
"very short version"
I was surprised to find this book so short. I seems to be a condensed version of a longer book, that I wish I had bought instead.
"Empowering and Inspiring"
I love these ladies and their books. So helpful and uplifting, with both thought provoking ideas and usable strategies. They truly value the parent-child relationship.
Full of tips that can be easily implemented. Just need to ensure that you're familiar with the principals.
