How to Talk So Kids Will Listen and Listen So Kids Will Talk

A wise acquaintance once told me that raising a child is not the same as baking a cake. There is no magic recipe. There are no secret strategies that produce consistent results for every child or for every family. There’s just you, and your child, and the thousands of different ways you interact every day.

I’ve found this to be very true. My children react to some situations the way most of their classmates do. They react to other situations in ways that are uniquely their own. At certain stages of their development, they needed clear consequences to help them see the way their actions affected those around them. At other stages of development, they were utterly unable to see the connections between their choices and my subsequent parenting decisions. Strictness, in such situations, was not helpful. Over the past ten years, I have come to view parenting much in the same way that I view writing, or sculpture, or any other art form. Certain general principles apply. The secret lies in discovering which principle to rely on at any given moment.

This week I’m re-reading Adele Faber and Elaine Mazlish’s How to Talk so Kids Will Listen and Listen so Kids Will Talk. My mother gave me this book when I was pregnant with my first child. It’s a practical handbook about how we communicate and, perhaps more importantly, how we can encourage others to do the same. It builds off the assumption that a child’s feelings are just as important as those of an adult, and just as deserving of recognition.

I’m not too thrilled with the commercial descriptions of this book. They make it sound like a brittle list of parenting commandments, inflexible and unsuited to any but an extraordinarily typical family. The reality is much more refreshing. I first read this book when my son was two, and found the ideas intriguing. Many of the more pragmatic suggestions were irrelevant to me then. But the concepts have stayed with me, and have probably influenced my parenting style more than I will ever realize.

Parenting, like any other skill, involves both practice and theory. I find parenting books useful primarily because they offer a unique opportunity to step back and examine the way I interact with my children. They shake up my assumptions about the shoulds and should nots of childraising. They encourage me to change, even if I don’t always change in the way the book’s author intended.

The best parenting books also provide useful tools for dealing with problem situations. Like any other tool, these work best when applied astutely, and are no replacement for authenticity and human empathy.

How to Talk so Kids Will Listen and Listen so Kids Will Talk offers a lot of useful tools. I value them enough that it seemed appropriate to dig out the book for a refresher course. So far, I have not been disappointed.

Selected Title

For millennia, an enigmatic alien race called the Zyxlar had ruled the
galaxy.

They seeded the cosmos with life, transplanting vast numbers from among
the species they had enslaved, like so many chess pieces. They
terraformed planets and extinguished stars, uplifted and destroyed
intelligent life. They patiently shaped the galaxy toward the purpose
known only to them.

And then, one day, they disappeared without a trace.
