More about What Do You Say?…
A guide to effectively communicating with teenagers by the bestselling authors of The Self-Driven Child.
If you’re a parent, you’ve had a moment when you’ve thought, “How did that conversation go so badly?”. At some point after the sixth grade, the same kid who asked “why” non-stop suddenly stops talking to you. And the conversations that you wish you could have – ones fueled by your desire to see your kid passionately engaged – suddenly feel impossible to execute. The good news is that effective communication can be cultivated, learned, and taught. And as you get better at this, so will your kids.
William Stixrud, Ph.D., and Ned Johnson have 60 years combined experience talking to kids one-on-one. The most common question they get when speaking to parents and educators is: What do you say? While many adults understand the philosophies dominating the parenting bestseller list, parents often don’t know how to act on them. In What Do You Say?, Johnson and Stixrud show how to engage in respectful and effective dialogue, beginning with defining and demonstrating the basic principles of listening and speaking. What Do You Say? is a manual and map that will immediately transform parents’ ability to navigate complex terrain and train their minds and hearts to communicate ever more successfully.
