My Thoughts

The book was a fast read I read it very quickly, and it is broken up into 8 different tools: Talking, Listening, Influencing, Connecting, Teaching, Encouraging, Correcting and Leading.  This book was well written and had some information that I knew and didn't know. All of the tools were very great tools but I had my favorites, I enjoyed  Tool #2 and My favorite listening tip was tip #1 ("Listening first will always help yo respond more wisely than if you have talked first") I totally agree a lot of situations can workout much better if everyone only listened.

Another tool I really liked was Tool #6, and it talked about a awesome encouraging  tip # 1, which was ( "Consistently pointing out positive behavior is a powerful way to transforms your child's habit") I definitely will be using this because I feel bad sometimes because I feel I don't bring up my children's positive behavior enough. I will be using this tool faithfully, I think my children will love it as well.
