by Ross W. Greene Ph.D.

Book Reviews

"Parents and children everywhere will benefit from Dr. Greene's insights into everyday parent-child interactions. His empathic understanding of families' daily struggles shines through the entire book. He provides realistic, concrete, and effective guidance for turning those struggles from confrontation to collaboration. Bravo!" -- Joan E. Durrant, PhD, Author of Positive Discipline in Everyday Parenting and Associate Professor of Family Social Sciences at the University of Manitoba

"Want to know how to prepare your child in the innovation era, raise a child who knows who he or she is and how to collaborate and solve problems creatively? Ross Greene shows you how in this book. Practice the parenting approach he describes, and your child will thrive!" -- Tony Wagner, Author of The Global Achievement Gap and Creating Innovators, Expert in Residence at Harvard University's new Innovation Lab, and Senior Research Fellow at the Learning Policy Institute.

"Ross Greene takes a deep dive into the complexities of raising a human being and emerges with guidance that is clear, doable, and sure to empower both parents and their children." -- Adele Faber, co-author of How To Talk So Kids Will Listen & Listen So Kids Will Talk

"This book helped me realize I wasn't alone in the mistakes I've made as a parent...and made me hopeful about the changes I can make in my parenting style and in how I interact with my kids. Whether your child is 5 or 15, the approach will elicit the type of communication, collaboration, and relationship that you want to ultimately have with your child. Dr. Greene's writing style is so easy to follow and relate to...he's not preachy or arrogant...he provides relevant information that can be used immediately...and he identifies with both the parent and the child. He provides lots of examples and advice that everyone who has kids will be able to identify with. I've often told my son that this is his first time being a teenager and this is my first time parenting a teen...that I'm learning as I go and there are many things that he and I have to navigate together. I'm far from perfecting this, but I'm a much more collaborative parent than I used to be...I've seen the aftermath of doing things the other way." -- Parent, Arlington, Virginia

Ross Greene, psychologist, expert on collaboration, and, above all, a wise and caring human being, blesses us with this brilliant, practical guide on how to raise children in such a way that they will become the people we all want our children to become. Brimming with specific tips and how-to details, as well as encouragement and optimism rooted in decades of experience, this book can quickly become any parent's go-to resource day in and day out, especially in those moments when you feel at wit's end. Bravo, Dr. Greene! -- Edward Hallowell, M.D., author of Driven to Distraction, The Childhood Roots of Adult Happiness, When You Worry About the Child You Love, and Happy Child, Happy Adult

"This practical guide is a powerful tool to support the development of mindsight—how we know our own mind, connect with others, and respect differences. Collaborating with our children and teens is an important skill Ross Greene inspires us to acquire to help our kids learn the lifelong capacity to problem solve, be empathic, and become more insightful. Filled with captivating stories and clear steps, Raising Human Beings will help you raise thoughtful and resilient individuals." -- Daniel J. Siegel, M.D. New York Times bestselling author of Brainstorm and co-author of The Whole-Brain Child and No-Drama Discipline
