Ten Powerful Things to Say to Your Kids is a wonderful book for every parent. Paul Axtell looks at parenting through the lens of conversation: what we say matters, and it’s what creates the relationships we have with others. With 10 powerful suggestions, Axtell shows parents how to craft conversations that nurture self-esteem and confidence, foster connection, allow kids to feel heard and important in the family, and build the resilience needed for children to handle the inevitable upsets life brings. Includes special sections on technology, grandparents, and reading resources.
