Book Reviews: “Talk So Your Kids Will Listen” and “Bully-proofing Children”

May 3, 2010

HOW TO TALK SO YOUR KIDS WILL LISTEN REVIEW (by Venkat Addepalli)

This is an excellent book with exercises.  I wish I read this book few years ago.  I agree with everything the book mentioned but kids should face the timeout/consequences for not doing the right things such as lying.  I tried to implement some suggestions but it is very, very difficult to control our emotions.  It seems easy when you read the book but it is not the case when you try to implement in real life situations.

BULLY-PROOFING CHILDREN: A PRACTICAL HANDS-ON GUIDE TO STOP BULLYING REVIEW (also by Venkat)

The book has several statistical information which deviated some times from the flow of the matter that the author is trying to convey.  I felt the same topic was repeated several times in all different angles (beating around the bush) instead of straight to the point.  After reading the book, I realized that Cyber bullying is one topic that many people may not know about and cannot be ignored.  The suggestions to arm the kids and parents to protect from bullying are noteworthy.
