Ratings and Reviews
Great introduction to the tools from the book, “How to Talk So Little Kids Will Listen”
This app is a great learning tool to get you started in understanding and applying the communication tools the authors present in their book, “How to Talk So Little Kids Will Listen.” To get the most out of the app, you should go through each response in all of the different scenarios - and the responses that you know are not the “right” ones will actually probably give you the most insight as the authors carefully crafted responses to show how some of our knee-jerk reactions to what kids do can have the opposite or negative effects towards our goal. Seeing the animations and actual dialogue really help me think how I can apply these tools with my own kids.
Not Worth the Price
I expected a lot more for the price. I think the creators should have spent their time and energy adding more content versus creating animations that dumb down the subject matter (probably not the right format for an adult audience). There are 15 scenarios. Not all applied to me, so the number of useful ones are even less. The animations make it time consuming.
Use it to reflect and handle things better next time. There's always a next time!
