A self-help classic full of useful nuggets (albeit pretty chatty). More worthwhile than I'd expected for all kinds of communication, though, even though it's been 40 years and two or even three generations have been exposed to these lessons. ( )

Reading this book is like gaining mind control power over children.

The chapter (5) on Praising needs to be updated with the latest research in that field but other than that the book seems very usefull. ( )

Haha so much of the same stuff other parenting books have said, some good ideas of how to make some changes. Some of conversation tips were nice ideas. But not much more than be involved and talk to your children, make them feel important, and show an interest in what they say. Why do we have to be told to do this.

“How to Talk” does immediately date itself — in part by referring to spanking as commonplace (although rejecting the practice) and in part through the ineffably no-nonsense prose of an earlier era. But the Book — that’s what I call it now, the Book, as if it is a religious text — made a quiet revolution in my home.
