Eye opening approach
Very personable. Like sitting with a knowledgeable friend, someone supportive, and giving you valuable information, life long lessons.
Yes. It was very hard not to but I wanted to think about the information and absorb it.
Definitely what I was looking for.
If you have already been over all the other books focusing on the children and have yet to find your answers this is a great start. Not saying that there are not many great parenting books out there with concepts that are tried and true because there are. What I am saying is this should be considered the backbone to implementing other strategies and for me after trying and having failed at other attempts with one of my very willful and stubborn minded children this book was a breath of fresh air. It may not be a cure all but it absolutely is a great foundation. Not only for the parenting role but your own personal relationships and most of all the relationship with yourself! We have all heard the different sayings “can’t love someone unless you love yourself" yada, yada, yada. But it's true and even though that is not what this book is teaching, it is teaching you to control what you can and all that we can control... is ourselves.
I wish someone would have told me about this book before I had children. It's a much better way to parent! It just makes sense. I'm inspired to start today!
This author has done an amazing job. If you consider and implement these dynamics into your life I feel you will reap reward beyond what you ever thought you could. Looking at ones self first can be very difficult but is the key to any relationship or problem. Thank you for an amazing book!
Much more than a book about "screaming". Every parent should read this book even if just to reinforce the positive tools you already knowingly deploy.
The insight and tips started working for me immediately. My wife said on the third day I like this new guy. My 9 yr old was receptive and responded so well.
The material and themes when presented often smack of obvious, apparent to overly simplified, but the true test and revolutionary nature is in the application. If is too easy and appealing to continue disfunctional behaiviours, and requires serious resolve to commit to a healthier pattern for yourself and your family.
I give it 5 stars, not because it is brilliant, quite frankly, I too often shrugged and felt like 'I know that already', but Hal's continued insistence throughout the book to pause and reflect on the material is trully reflective of what we need to do in practice: pause & reflect on our CHOSEN actions & patterns. I believe it is a book that gets more complex, demanding and 'revolutionary' with each subsequent listen and to this end the relatively short audio is also brilliant & too the point, inviting us to pause, reflect and revisit the entire audio to 'practice' again and again until we can reach our own breakthroughs and revolutions.
Though the book may seem to be a stern 'time out' to all parents, at it's heart it is a gift to every parent, asking them to be the best version of themselves, so they can be the best parent toward their children and family.
I Love Being Happily Married
Yes. Definitely learned of a different way of relating to my child.
The stories presented rang very close to my heart.
Well written and excellent narration.
How to keep it all together when my child loses it.
Well worth listening to.
This was a very good little book. I was sceptical about being told about what I needed to do to be a better parent. But ScreamFree Parenting is super practical, and essentially quite basic. It does leave the parent feeling thinking they are never going to be able to reach the lofty heights of perfect parent prescribed in the pages. Quite the opposite - it is very attainable.
