Half way through "Peaceful Parent, Happy Kids," I looked up at my partner and said, "This book will change my life." Indeed, Laura Markham's book has the potential to profoundly change everyone's parenting through her three tenets: emotional regulation, connection and "coaching, not controlling."

From Markham's advice, you will learn to connect more with your children, to see the world from their perspective, to empathize with them and to regulate your own feelings so as to model healthy emotional responses. These tools will change your relationship with your children in such positive ways, namely more listening, more understanding and fewer meltdowns. Ultimately, Markham shows us a more effective way to guide and relate to our children than yelling or spanking. And fear not: peaceful parenting does not equal permissive parenting. Just give it a go.
