Learn to more effectively resolve conflicts, commnicate, and create loving relationships with your children with the help of this relevant, practical guide to parenting.

Now revised for the first time since its initial publication, this groundbreaking guide 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, and 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 child will thrive.

P.E.T., or Parent Effectiveness Training, began almost forty 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 conflicts so everybody wins. This beloved classic is the most studied, highly praised, and proven parenting program in the world--and it will work for you.

Great read for heartfelt parenting.


I bought this book because I had read other positive reviews and I wasn't disappointed. The concepts in the book are very well laid out and easy to understand. I liked that the author gives step by step instuctions along the way and pulls it together well at the end. I have always felt that there had to be an alternative to the way I was parenting, because I knew so many of the things I was doing only worked in the short term. I am looking forward to putting these ideas into practice for a long time.



I recommend all parents read this book


I think this book is a must read for all parents of pre-teens onwards. I found the chapters on talking/ listening very informative. I have already recommended it to friends.
