I know that I can be better, and I WANT to be better for my kids, husband, friends, colleagues, even you reading this.
It occurred to me one day after loosing my patience with my 3 year old, Kaitlyn, that I need to be more mindful of the tone and words that I use. I also wanted to understand WHY I react the way I do, whether that be with love and patience, or anger and frustration.
A trusted friend recommended this book to me. I read it in 2 days as the content was pretty amazing and really spoke to me. I remember a story in the book about a mother who had felt horribly because she had yelled at her son that morning. The advice Rosenberg gave to this mother made tears immediately stream down my face, because I knew that's what I needed to do.
I recommend this book to all mommies and daddies out there who want to be a better parent through communication, while gaining and teaching your kid’s the power of emotional intelligence. Enjoy!
