When Your Kids Push Your Buttons And What You Can Do About It
To raise great kids, you need to be able to understand YOURSELF, as well as your children. When Your Kids Push Your Buttons answers the questions:
- What do I do when my kids are driving me crazy?
- How do I stop reacting?
- AND How can I get my kids to listen?
A must-read for every parent!
“I am not a huge fan of parenting books or self-help books, but I can’t underestimate how helpful I found this book. I don’t think I would be exaggerating to say it has literally changed the way I parent…It completely changed my perception so I can now see my child’s agenda, rather than just my agenda. Because I’m now aware of my emotions and can now assess (most) situations without getting emotionally involved, I’m able to more confidently parent my children.
A fantastic parenting guidebook that’s completely opened my eyes!”
Voted one of the top 10 parenting books by the New York Post.
When Your Kids Push Your Buttons…has a 3.5 out of 4 stars on the New York Post’s top parenting book list!
“Why does a kid’s particular behavior drive you batty? Harris suggests you think back to your own childhood: Maybe that misbehavior is triggering a memory that pushes your buttons. Understanding why you get angry helps.
A straightforward, easy-to-read manual, When Your Kids Push Your Buttons is filled with practical advice gleaned from a course Harris, a parent and family counselor, has taught for several years. Also included are worksheets and step-by-step exercises for breaking free of the past and defusing explosive situations. If you can identify with the title (and what parent can’t?), “Buttons” is worth reading.”
—Rich, The New York Post

Full of helpful parenting tips and tools, Confident Parents gives you the reasons why these principles work.

Bonnie is the CHILD WHISPERER!
“Parents… do you want more JOY, HARMONY, and FUN with your children and less DRAMA and TEARS? I highly recommend this book…Many of us learned our parenting skills from our parents. But old parenting techniques (taking things away, punishment, “Do it because I said so!!!”) do not seem to work. Connective Parenting helps parents gain insight into what is really going in the mind of a child and in the mind of the parent. Bonnie provides logical explanations and tangible, useful strategies, which can help reduce daily battles, tears, and drama. Connective Parenting ROCKS and so does Bonnie Harris!”
“Bonnie Harris has written a truly informative, practical book that will serve as an invaluable resource for parents and professionals alike. She has skillfully described eight key principles that parents can follow as they raise their children to be more confident, responsible, and resilient. Through real-life stories she offers realistic examples of ways of practicing these principles and dealing with situations that all parents face. She educates us with empathy, compassion, and humor. She is to be commended for writing such an impressive book.”
