Book Review - The Child Whisperer

About the Book
You've been there feeling helpless, clueless, when a child you love totally bewilders you.

Maybe it's the tantrum at the store, or the hour-long bedtime battle, or the head-scratcher of getting your child to eat veggies. You wonder what on Earth to do, so you get advice, read books, watch videos, ask the internet. And still, something's missing.

You need a plan that addresses your child's needs, not everyone else's. Why couldn't children come with a handbook?

Turns out, children are born with a handbook they are the handbook.

In The Child Whisperer, bestselling author Carol Tuttle explains that children tell their parents every day exactly how they need to be parented. They tell their teachers exactly how they need to be taught. Children are trying to tell adults who they are so they can be recognized and treated in a way that honors them uniquely.

The Child Whisperer reveals that the key to raising happy, healthy, cooperative children lies in understanding and responding to a child's inner nature.

Children's true natures are written in the shape of their faces and expressed daily in their appearance, body language, tone of voice, and choice of words. Your child's unique laugh, cry, joys, worries, and even tantrums speak volumes about they type of parenting they need. And you'll learn exactly how to offer it by reading The Child Whisperer.

This simple but unique approach actually makes parenting more intuitive, fun, cooperative, and most importantly customized to your individual child.

The Child Whisperer will give you the tools to:

  • Have a happier, more cooperative child, using less discipline
  • Foster more confidence and natural success in your child
  • Repair trouble parent/teen relationships
  • Reconnect with your adult children

The Child Whisperer teaches how to read unsaid clues that children naturally give every day, and shows how parenting, teaching, coaching, and mentoring children can be an even more intuitive, cooperative experience than ever.

My Take on the Book
This was a practical book that provides the reader with some sage advice on how to develop strong and lasting relationships with your child while still maintaining a sense of decorum within the home. The author provides so many tips that any parent can utilize right away to change the way you discipline as well as really listening to your child to hear how they wish to be disciplined. The ideas that the author shared in this book made sense and to me were ones that I could see any parent using. While I can tell that the concepts will take time and patience to implement, they were straight forward and were concepts that made a lot of sense. This was a great book that all parents will appreciate!

Wow, how lucky this girls are to have a dad like you! I have put some of Carol Tuttle's insights into motion and have seen huge results with my two boys, and even with my relationship with my dear husband. This seems to be such a practical approach to parenting. It honors every child's individuality, rather than a one-size fits all approach.
