The book starts off with a "tool" that you use to feel fully and safely. It's called SAFE. This is where you Stop and notice, Accept and acknowledge, Feel fully, and Exit if necessary. This tool definitely allows you to open your mind and become willing to explore other options when dealing with your emotions while parenting. In addition to the SAFE tool, there are about 20 techniques that one can use to diffuse situations with their children. Of them all, my favorites, or the ones that I am really interested in trying, are The Simple Inquiry, The Special Notebook , and The Speaking Walls. While reading, I noticed that I have tried SOME of the techniques listed, I am looking forward to trying others.
As you can see, I have already started to put some of what I read in the book to good use...
