Publisher's Summary

P.E.T. began over 45 years ago as the first national parent-training program to teach parents how to communicate more effectively with kids and offer step-by-step advice to resolving family conflict so everybody wins. This beloved classic is the most studied, highly-praised, and proven parenting program in the world -and it will for you. This ground-breaking book will show you:

How to avoid being a permissive parent.
How to listen so kids will talk to you and talk so kids will listen to you.
How to teach your children to "own" their problems and to solve them.
How to use the "No-Lose" method to resolve conflicts. Using the timeless methods of P.E.T. will have immediate results: less fighting, fewer tantrums and lies, no need for punishment. Whether you have a toddler striking out for independence or a teenager who has already started rebelling, you'll find P.E.T. a compassionate, effective way to instill responsibility and create a nurturing family environment in which your children will thrive.

A book all parents should read

P.E.T is a must read for all parents who are determined to have healthy lifelong relationships with their children. By reading it, I have identified potentially damaging behaviour in my actions and then learned new strategies to improve communication with my children. A great, easy read, clear and sobering.
