Voice Lessons for Parents
Parenting expert and bestselling author Wendy Mogel, PhD, offers an essential guide to the art of talking to children, and shows how a change in voice can transform conversations.
Mogel’s New York Times bestseller The Blessing of a Skinned Knee is the bedside bible for a generation of parents. Several years ago, she began giving “voice lessons” to parents who were struggling with their kids, demonstrating how a shift in tone, tempo and body language led to a surprising outcome: the children responded by cooperating with greater alacrity, and communicating with more warmth, respect and sincerity. As the parents found their voices, so did the children.
Mogel discusses her approach, revealing how each age and stage of a child’s life brings new opportunities to connect through language and explains the best ways to talk about your child to grandparents, partners and exes, teachers and caretakers — and even what to do about the distraction of digital devices and how they impact the connection with your family.
