As a long-time advocate of consensual living and respectful/peaceful parenting, Faber and Mazlish’s books have long been in my recommendations for parents. Their book, How to Talk So Kids Will Listen and Listen So Kids Will Talk is a staple for many parents who need a fast read and easy explanations into getting into a new mindset. Joanna Faber, daughter of the famed Adele Faber, along with Julie King, is expanding on her mother’s previous series. If you are looking for another book in line with the original Faber and Mazlish books, Faber and King’s books are a welcome addition. There isn’t anything truly groundbreaking in the newer editions. Much of the same information is covered. However, with new examples and additional reading, these will likely appeal to new parents looking for answers.
