Description
Renowned child psychologist and New York Times bestselling author of Lost at School and The Explosive Child explains how to cultivate a better parent-child relationship while also nurturing empathy, honesty, resilience, and independence.
Parents have an important task: figure out who their child is—his or her skills, preferences, beliefs, values, personality traits, goals, and direction—get comfortable with it, and then help them pursue and live a life according to it. Yet parents also want their kids to be independent, but not if they are going to make bad choices. They want to avoid being too overbearing, but not if an apathetic kid is what they have to show for it. They want to have a good relationship with their kids, but not if that means being a pushover. They don't want to scream, but they do want to be heard. Good parenting is about striking the balance between a child's characteristics and a parent's desire to have influence.

Dr. Ross Greene "makes a powerful case for rethinking typical approaches to parenting and disciplining children" (The Atlantic). Through his well-known model of solving problems collaboratively, parents can forgo timeout and sticker charts; stop badgering, berating, threatening, and punishing; allow their kids to feel heard and validated; and have influence.

From homework to hygiene, curfews, to screen time, Dr. Greene "arms parents with guidelines that are clear, doable, and sure to empower both parents and their children" (Adele Faber, coauthor of How to Talk So Kids Will Listen). Raising Human Beings is "inspirational...a game-changer for parents, teachers, and other caregivers. Its advice is reasonable and empathetic, and readers will feel ready to start creating a better relationship with the children in their lives" (Publishers Weekly, starred review).

      • premium: True
      • source: AudioFile Magazine
      • content: This thoughtful audio discusses helping your children become who they are while learning important life skills. Narrator Jonathan Ross's gentle vocal personality expresses the kindness in the author's message without diminishing its strength. His vocal charm makes listeners want to connect with the author's ideas and advice. A psychotherapist and father of teenagers, Greene speaks to today's central parenting challenge--how to provide the structure and guidance that children need while not overpowering their autonomy and sense of self. With familiar scenarios from his own experience, he shows how parents can meet their children where they are on their journey and step in confidently when required. Greene's accessible language, along with Ross's amiable reading, makes the wisdom in this audiobook easy to hear and absorb. T.W. © AudioFile 2017, Portland, Maine

        Starred review from June 20, 2016
        In this inspirational book about raising children, child psychologist Greene (Lost and Found) explores mutually beneficial problem-solving. Historically, society’s approach for raising kids has been what Greene calls plan A: unilaterally imposing solutions. What Greene explains, however, is that plan A is a surefire way of misunderstanding the root of issues and cutting off communication. (Those who complain that their children don’t talk to them anymore, take heed!) Greene introduces the main focus of this book, what he calls plan B, with the premise that all people—including kids—want to do well and will do well if able. When a child is having difficulty, there is a root problem getting in the way of that desire to do well. Poor behavior is the reaction to the problem—a warning sign. Plan B actively uses three steps (empathy, define adult concerns, and invitation) to establish understanding and work in partnership to come up with solutions that address every party’s concerns. This book is a game-changer for parents, teachers, and other caregivers of children. Its advice is reasonable and empathetic, and readers will feel ready to start creating a better relationship with the children in their lives.
