    While most parenting programs are designed to coerce kids to change, Parenting Without Power Struggles does something innovative, showing you how to help your children awaken their natural instincts to cooperate, rather than employing threats or bribes, which inevitably fuels their resistance. By staying calm and being the confident "captain of the ship" your child needs, you will learn how to parent from a place of strong, durable connection, and you'll be better able to help your kids navigate the challenging moments of growing up.

    Nothing really matters says: "Highly recommended."

    Where does Parenting Without Power Struggles rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Compared to other audio books I've listened to the narrator of this book was difficult to listen to. Her voice was monotone, and dialog pieces were far to drawn out. It was difficult to finish listening to this audiobook but after paying $25 I forced myself to. The book itself is helpful and informative but the boring narration overshadowed the content.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Susan Stiffelman? Why or why not?

    If another narrator was listed as reading her book I would be willing to try listening to another one of her books.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Susan Stiffelman’s performances?

    no, her reading is very boring.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    no, it was hard to concentrate on the content with the boring monotone reading.

    Parenting is not about kids, it's about parents. If you're not in control, then you cannot be in charge. What every kid really needs are parents who are able to keep their cool no matter what. Easier said than done? Not anymore, thanks to ScreamFree Parenting, the principle-based approach that's inspiring parents everywhere to truly revolutionize their family dynamics.

    Where does ScreamFree Parenting rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This was my first audiobook and it was great the narrator had a great voice that was easy to listen to. I just started another audio book and it's not as easy to listen to. This audiobook was great, it was informative, helpful, in parts had humor and some sad stories.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I cried a few times listening to this book because it has been so hard lately and I feel that it has given me tools that I did not have before and advice I had not heard before. It was not a repeat of the same old suggestions I always here when seeking help to deal with my problems.


    Any additional comments?

    I would recommend this to any parent who is currently struggling with being the parent they want they could be.
