This brilliantly original and practical system for parenting children is the brainchild of John Gray, whose Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus books and seminars have helped millions of adults communicate more effectively and lovingly with each other. Based on this idea that children respond better to positive rather than negative reinforcement, the Children Are from Heaven program concentrates on rewarding, not punishing, children and fostering their innate desire to please their parents.
Central to this approach are the five positive messages your children need to learn again and again:
It's okay to be different.
It's okay to make mistakes.
It's okay to express negative emotions.
It's okay to want more.
It's okay to say no, but remember Mom and Dad are the bosses.
John Gray, Ph.D., is one of the world’s leading relationship experts, and an authority on improving communication styles for couples, companies, and communities. His many books have sold more than fifty million copies in fifty different languages worldwide. John lives with his wife and children in northern California.
Becky Cordi1 Stars Out Of 5February 20, 2009Becky CordiI had read books by Dr. Dobson about parenting that I thought were great. My husband's and my Pastor suggested John Gray's book Men Are From Mars Women Are From Venus. After we read it I thought he had a great insight into relationships, so I thought I would read his book Children Are From Heaven. Reading it made me feel so depressed. It made me feel like I was parenting all wrong. I felt like it went against most of the things Dr. Dobson suggested in his books. I do not recommend this book to anyone.
