Joanna Faber is coauthor (with Dr. Julie King) of: HOW TO TALK SO LITTLE KIDS WILL LISTEN: A Survival Guide to Life With Children Ages 2-7. The book is entertaining as well as informative as it shares stories and tools/ ideas on how to deal with all kinds of issues with these young kiddos. It’s a process, and an important one that helps kids grow to be understanding and empathetic youth and adults. Rather than dictating what needs to be done, making it a game, changes the scene. Instead of telling kids to clean up the room, make the basket for the blocks a monster that’s eating the blocks. Kids feel heard and acknowledged. And this is great not just for parents, but teachers as well, anyone spending time with these little ones.
