When Parenting Is A Foreign Language

Sometimes when you give a parent a parenting book they dismiss it as “been there, done that.” We could not have received a more polar opposite reaction. Parents reported they had numerous “Ah-hah! moments. Why? Because the book teaches you how to communicate with your child on a whole new level by essentially learning a second language, theirs! As adults it is very easy to forget how the mind of a child works. Until you can think like a child, you can’t reason with one. Most parents speak the language of thoughts, whereas children speak the language of feelings. This book is a guide to understanding the language of feelings and how they relate to your child while creating a pathway for communication. It explores the head-heart connection and gives you a step by step guide to repair the connection along with a system for maintaining it. This isn’t an overnight fix, in fact it is going to take a lot of practice. Fortunately the author provides helpful exercises to practice the techniques of identifying problems and then making the right connection with your child. The book is an easy read giving you a clear roadmap through what can feel like uncharted territory. Parents felt that Ross-Glazer’s writing style was easy to digest and light-hearted enough so that you never feel like you’re being judged or preached to. The big takeaway is that it’s never too late to learn and apply these techniques in your home.

A Seal of Approval review involves a multi-step process conducted over an eight-week period.

Parents and children, experience and review submitted products and services either already released or coming to market.

Participants fill out questionnaires for each product or service they test. They score based on 13 levels of criteria including quality, appeal, design, price, packaging, directions, desirability, stimulation, replay factor and more. Results are based on both statistical averaging and comments received by testers.

There are three testing periods each year:
