Books for children and those who care for them
Always in sync with some people? And always at odds with others?
Susie Leonard Weller can tell you why. In Why Don't You Understand? Improve Family Communication with the 4 Thinking Styles, she demystifies recent research to explain why some of our relationships are easy and some are a nonstop struggle.
Better yet, this experienced parent educator tells us what to do when someone's brain style drives us crazy. Besides providing insight about relationships outside the family, she puts a special focus on parenting, and why understanding each family member's thinking style is so important. You need to understand your partner, so that the two of you can successfully co-parent. You need to understand each of your children, so that you can parent them, and nurture healthy sibling relationships.
What Weller's book explains are the four distinct ways our brains gather and process information. None of these are bad or good, right or wrong. They're innate—no different than being right- or left-handed, no different than our unique temperaments.
