Hi! My kid has just turned 2 the other week. So you can just imagine that I'm groping the rope to better communication and making most of the lack of it. I'm not sure if it's tackled in the book but I would want help in effective delivery of my message regarding behavior or proper behavior. I am in dire need for positive ways to teach him about good manners and proper behavior.

Hi, Zamejias:

The Feldhahn/Rice book is more for older kids, but there are oodles of resources on interacting with young children. Perhaps a search on Christianbook.com would reveal some good titles.

However, you are entered in the drawing for one of the F/R books. Your two-year-old will be a teen before you know it!

I have been having a problem with my only girl who I caught looking at nude pics on the internet. She's only a freshman in high school and I wonder how to approach it to keep her knowing I'm still her mom but am still the boss of the house. Maybe this book will give me some suggestions.

Jill said...

Maria V, I'd love to send you a copy of this book. Your name was drawn from the hat. I will need a way to contact you, though. I hope you see this and get back to me with a mailing address. You can send that to me privately from my Contact page. Thanks!

I have a 5 month old so I am definitely entering so I can read it for the future (I know it's for teens).

Right now of course my little boy just coos and babbles but I want to teach him sign language so that we can communicate earlier (before he actually begins to talk).

I'll let you decide if you want to enter me. : )
