A veteran child psychologist offers three broad strategies to parents: first--keep your own emotions managed, second--foster a solid emotional connection with your children, and third--use coaching instead of control to help your children function better. While narrator Xe Sands uses a pleasant, if somewhat formal, voice, she has no trouble handling the phrasing challenges presented by some of the longer wordy sentences. Her performance, however, never loosens up enough to make this audio sound warm or inviting or to make herself sound authentically engaged with her audience. But the author's message of quiet empowerment comes through nonetheless because she writes with appealing clarity and offers action steps that everyone will understand.
