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.
What did you love best about Parent Effectiveness Training (P.E.T.)?
I really liked this book and found it helpful. I have a complaint though. The author does a really excellent job explaining the concepts, but doesn't explain how to implement them as well as I needed him to (more examples would have helped). The book feels at a number of points like an advertisement for PET videos (no longer available) or courses which, perhaps, provide the missing implementation details. I still highly recommend this book, but you may want to read other similar books to get a handle on implementing the ideas. If you're only going to read one parenting book, you'll probably do better with How to Talk So Kids Will Listen and Listen So Kids Will Talk".
What other book might you compare Parent Effectiveness Training (P.E.T.) to and why?
How to Talk So Kids Will Listen and Listen So Kids Will Talk has some similar ideas perhaps not as well explained but with implementation explained better. I think PET has some very good concepts and explanations that won't be found in HTTSKWLALSKWT, though. Read both.

What made the experience of listening to Parent Effectiveness Training (P.E.T.) the most enjoyable?
This was the best perspective on interpersonal communication and active listening that I've heard.
What did you like best about this story?
The fact that I tried the techniques and they actually work. The active listening worked with my Son (11), my Daughter (16), my wife, Brother, Sister-in-law.... This really works!
What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?
The roadblocks to active listening and communication.
