Overview

Renowned speaker, New York Times bestselling author of The Blessing of a Skinned Knee, and parenting expert Dr. Wendy Mogel offers an essential guide to the new art of talking to children, and how a change in voice can transform conversations.

Dr. Wendy Mogel’s New York Times bestseller, The Blessing of a Skinned Knee is the bedside bible for a generation of parents unnerved by the culture’s accelerating pace. Several years ago Mogel began giving “voice lessons” to parents who were struggling with their kids, demonstrating how a shift in tone, tempo and body language led to a surprising outcome: the children responded by cooperating with greater alacrity, and communicating with more warmth, respect and sincerity. As the parents found their voices, so did the children.

In Voice Lessons, Mogel elaborates on this novel clinical approach, revealing how each age and stage of a child’s life brings new opportunities to connect through language. Delving into sources as diverse as neuroscience, fairy tales, and anthropology, Mogel offers specific guidance for talking to children across the entire expanse of childhood and adolescence. She also explains the best ways to talk about your child to your parents and in-laws, and to teachers, coaches, and caretakers. Throughout the book, Mogel addresses an obstacle that flummoxes even the most seasoned and confident parent: the distraction of digital devices, how they impact our connection with our families, and what we can do about it.

Talking to children is an invitation, says Mogel. If you are curious and brave, it can be a door to enchantment: “Children are filled with wonder. They will lead you on an incredible journey if they trust you, if you make the time, and if you are willing to follow.”
