A couple of weeks ago I decided to write a children's book as a way of introducing parents to the loving language of compassionate communication (nonviolent communication, nvc). The book is loosely based on nvc and work of Marshall Rosenberg, PhD. It helps both kids and parents find some feelings and needs behind some common daily interactions.
When we connect at a needs level, we are more capable of connecting before correcting. Our focus is on what the child is feeling and needing rather than how "appropriate or inappropriate" their strategies are to us.
This is a first edition. I would love comments and feedback. A good portion of it is available to read in a free preview.
Grace in, peace out,
