The approach is designed to help you focus your time and energy on teaching your kids what you want them to learn.

It is simply a model for interacting with them in a way that: Keeps you from getting caught in a power struggle that puts you at odds with children; Shows you how to tap into your children's internal motivation to hear what you have to say as valuable; Reinforces the values and qualities that you want them to have as adults. This book goes a long way to establishing the sort of relationship where children actually hear what their parents are saying, and even look to them for help and guidance!
