Seeds of Non-Violent Communication: A Guidebook for Educators and Parents According to Dr. Marshall Rosenberg’s Model by Liat Azar is a useful guide that encourages readers to adopt a humanistic approach and outlook to understand diverse situations in a different manner. This will help them create non-violent relationships that assist in reducing violence, creating closeness, and raising a generation that will know how to communicate. The author gives tips to maintain a sense of togetherness and mutual empathy, how to talk differently, how to empathize, and how to learn to manage communication. The book speaks about how to integrate theory and practice, enrich emotional vocabulary, how to be a model for children, how to implement nonviolent language at home, and many more ideas that will improve the quality of all of life’s environments.

The book describes the aspects of empathy and self-expression thoroughly and is uplifting and motivating to all readers. The tools in the book have a theoretical section, and a section with a collection of suggestions that will guide everyone to understand themselves and children in a good way. The approaches in the book are easy to comprehend and can be practiced by everyone to make changes in their perspective, remove barriers, and form a genuine connection through natural, heartfelt giving. It’s a good book for parents as well as educators to understand children and their emotions better and raise a generation where the importance of communicating aptly is highlighted, and where the kids are taught to speak and listen in ‘giraffe language.’
