What Worked Yesterday Might Not Work Today

"The minute you think you have it figured out, your child gets older and the communication that used to work is now history. So as a parent you are always thinking on your feet and finding new ways to talk based on your child's development and unique personality."

Susanna Neumann, Ph.D.

Child Psychoanalyst Consultant, Rockefeller University

Learn how to talk to kids of any age. Listen through your children's ears and find out how much of your conversation kids really understand — and why they don't seem to pay attention when you want them to.

Plus, learn about the hidden messages that underlie your kids' questions and arguments.
