From the Publisher
The Nurtured Heart Approach is an amazing set of strategies developed specifically for children with ADHD and other challenging behaviors to facilitate parenting and classroom success. These methods have helped thousands of families to transform their child from using their intensity in primarily negative ways to using their intensity in beautifully creative and constructive ways. This approach has also helped teachers and other school personnel to have a dramatically positive effect on all children. Most ordinary methods of parenting and teaching inadvertently backfire when applied to ADHD and other challenging children, despite the best of intentions. Most methods accidentally reward children by giving far more energy to children when things are going wrong. The Nurtured Heart Approach is a powerful and quick way to create a new scenario of success. This approach is fully described in the new book, Transforming the Difficult Child, The Nurtured Heart Approach.

Transformation for whole family!!This was a little hard for me to get through, and I love self help/ how to/ why books and audios. He is just so wordy. I think it’s his delivery that makes the info hard to understand. So I listened to these twice and BOOM! It clicked! This makes PERFECT sense now, as to why and how his method transforms difficult children, or adults.I began using these methods on my 13 year old (extreme difficult, oppositional son ) and day 1, our home was more peaceful. I feel like such a happier person myself. When you have to find what’s going right, rather than what’s wrong, how could you not be happier?! Thank thank thank you Dr Glasser!

Not an audio book – recorded seminarI found the audio version extremely useful for those difficult and challenging times when I needed to reset myself. It also made it easier for my husband and I to get on the same page faster because we could listen to it while commuting and weren’t dependent on the book. The only reason I didn’t give it 5 stars is because it is NOT an audio version of the book. The book has much more in depth information, especially as it relates to stand #3. This is a recording of a seminar he gave, so if you’re thinking it’s the book, it isn’t.
Excellent book highly recommendThis book gives simple, easy to remember ways to learn how to change energy in relationships and to see greatness in our children, others, and ourselves. The stands are especially effective for challenging children and all children thrive with this.
Great adviceTalk positive to you children if you want them to think, talk and be positive.

Wonderful Information, horrible sound qualityI love this CD. I think Glasser is approachable and easy to listen to. He has a tendency to ramble a bit, but that adds to his charm. The information is invaluable, and I got a lot out of listening to it and to learning from his words.My only reason for giving this CD a 4 out of 5 stars is because the sound quality makes it sound like it was done on a tape deck in a big room. I have to turn my stereo up loud and fade the speakers to just one side. I listened to it mostly in my car, but it was just as bad in the home system. I think for $30 they could give a better sound product.

Kind of obvious.Got what I ordered, but if you are a teacher, seems like basic “duh” information. But maybe that’s just me.

Great audio CD’s.Great cd, very informative. I listen to it on my car and I have listened to it several times. This approach works well and it’s makes sense. So glad we started following the Nurtured Heart approach.
