There is a vast readership awaiting How to Negotiate with Kids. It addresses one of today's top parenting concerns: how to deal with a child who disagrees, how to avoid being either an ogre or a pushover, and--most of all--how to handle conflicts in ways that build lasting relationships with children. Personal anecdotes, stories from Brown's workshop families, and sample dialogues of right and wrong approaches make How to Negotiate with Kids an essential tool for parents who want to reduce conflict and strengthen their families in ways that will protect their children's emotional health.
