Between Parent & Teenager
Ginott
1969

Ginott was the expert on child psychology and was rather groundbreaking in his approach to communication with children and teens. Ginott advocated compassionate talking and staying away from blaming the child. He also believed parents should focus on the situation or problem, rather than reprimanding the child. I could see retaining the original edition as a core philosophy. Aside from some dated vocabulary, it still holds up nearly 40 years later. There was a revised edition released in 2003. Depending on your service population, this could be considered a core title. In my book, its a keeper.
