Bedtime is the perfect time to get into your children’s heads, find out what is going on in their lives, and how they are feeling. It may be tempting to dismiss bedtime to enjoy some uninterrupted moments at the end of the day. However, the more you engage your children in conversation, the more they open up. When you listen, really listen to your children, it gives them a sense of security, stability, and a feeling of love. Children will be more open to discuss issues and will share more information when their conversations are uninterrupted. If not bedtime, find time each day to have a quiet moment with each of your children. Listen attentively. Don’t criticize or try to fix their problems. Like all of us, at times, they just need a sympathetic ear.

    This book is simply amazing quick to read but so much information on parenting. With all the "myth" on parenting on the internet, this is THE reference to have, that is really truthful and complete :) thanks Norma smoker for that wonderful book!
