Between Parent and Child: Revised and Updated: The Bestselling Classic That Revolutionised Parent-Child Communication by by Dr. Haim G. Ginott
This is a parenting book that you would be wise to put on your beside table so that you can digest it page by page and then review again and again as your children grow. As a parent, grandparent and educator I have certainly done that over the years.
I remember clearly the first time I was reading it. My then 7 year old granddaughter climbed into bed with me and asked what I was reading. I had just finished the first story that Dr. Ginott shares about "how children speak in code." She asked "What does speaking in code mean" - I answered "A little boy was asking his father about abandoned children in different parts of the world and was not getting satisfied by his father's answers." I proceeded to read the story and then asked her, "What do you think he was really asking his father?" Without hesitation she replied. "He was worried about being abandoned!" She then asked if she could continue to read the chapter herself and I handed her the book. After a few pages she clutched the book to her chest and declared." Granny, every parent should read this book!" I HAVE BEEN RECOMMENDING THIS BOOK EVER SINCE!
