The first chapter from the book is titled Control Your Volume Knob and how many times have I raised my voice to get my kids to listen to me after repeating myself continuously. The author shares a real-life story that is relatable and a tip to use...this first one is Your communication style with your kids is REALLY, REALLY important. Not their communication style. Yours. At the end of the chapter is a couple questions to consider that will help you apply and remember the main point of that chapter. The eight tools in the book are: talking, listening, influencing, connecting, teaching, encouraging, correcting, and leading. The last section of the book is a summary of all the tips.
