“In this intelligent and useful book, Wendy Mogel explains how the tenor of your remarks may make as much difference as their content. In accessible terms, she shows how minor adjustments may help lower the inherent tension of parent-child relationships.”
—Andrew Solomon, bestselling author of «Far From the Tree»

Wendy Mogel discusses «Voice Lessons for Parents: What to Say, How to Say It, and When to Listen»

At 57th Street Books

About the book: Dr. Mogel’s New York Times bestselling «The Blessing of a Skinned Knee» is the bedside bible for a generation of parents. 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 communicating with more warmth, respect, and sincerity. As the parents found their voices, so did the children.

In «Voice Lessons,» Mogel invites parents to use a new approach to transform their conversations, and identify opportunities to connect with their children through language.

“The art of conversation with children,” writes Mogel, “rests not only on content but also on learning to speak in an ever-changing dialect that evolves as the child matures.” Understanding a child’s cognitive abilities, temperament, and interests, along with neurobiological gender differences, are the first steps toward effective communication. Mogel walks parents through each stage of talking to girls and boys, from demonstrating a vivid and detailed vocabulary when speaking to infants to maintaining restraint and open-mindedness when talking with teenagers. Mogel also shows parents how to navigate communication in the digital age, how to get the best out of relationships with other adults in their children’s lives, and ultimately how parenthood can open the door to a magical new view of the world.

About the author: Dr. Wendy Mogel is a practicing clinical psychologist, New York Times best selling author and international public speaker.

In more than five hundred talks she’s addressed diverse audiences including non-English speaking Chinese business women in Beijing, youth leaders at the (Buddhist) Vajrayana Institute in Sydney, the staff of the New York Times, Baptist clergy, rabbinic students, and the graduating class of the Claremont Colleges at their interfaith baccalaureate ceremony.

She was once on a program with President Barack Obama, once with the Dalai Lama and once with circus performers.

Currently she serves on the scientific advisory board of Parents Magazine and is a research and policy advisor for Challenge Success—a child advocacy program of the Stanford University School of Education.
