Check out the November issue of Today’s Parent for an article on Positive Things About the Recession by Karan Smith. Karan cites Jennifer’s advice to set a good example for your children, sending kids the message that bad things sometimes happen but that your family will work things out. She also notes Jennifer’s reassurance that saying no to your children can be a good thing, preparing them for the inevitable setbacks in life.
"Connected Parenting advises us not just how to parent, but—far more important—who to be as parents. The therapeutic methods suggested by Jennifer Kolari are based not on simple-minded behavioural solutions, but on building warm, nurturing relationships with our children, with insight and compassion not only for their little flaws, but also for our own larger ones."

"A must read for parents, educators, and any other adults who want to connect in a deeply caring and positive way with the children in their lives."
