When a child is acting out, parents often respond with anger. But there is a better way. Drawing on twenty years of experience as a child therapist, Jennifer Kolari explains that children act up when they feel an adult does not understand their concerns. The answer is parenting with empathy, which Kolari helps parents implement via her proven CALM technique:

C onnect emotionally

match the A ffect of the child

L isten to what your child is saying

M irror their emotion back to show understanding

With this simple strategy, parents can connect with their child in any situation to reduce anxiety, de-escalate tantrums instantly and increase self-esteem. Insightful and empowering, Connected Parenting is filled with step-by-step advice and examples from families that have been transformed, often within weeks. It will bring out the best in you--and your child.

This book encourages readers to take emathizing with their children a step further. I have tried the techniques for preventing a full-scale meltdown, (with success!) in my home.
