I needed this! I didn't learn hardly any of this growing up.
The authors gave me principles... and also examples to help me visualize these abstract ideas in everyday life. Very good teaching!
Felt like it was missing something. I read the hard copy of boundaries in marriage and thought it was dead on accurate. With two small boys, thought this would be a good listen. I was mistaken. To truly absorb any lessons, I need applicable examples, repetition, and a good story line. This was like listening to a couple of college lectures.
This BOOK is awesome but the audible/abridged version is a total waste of time. Not even close to the actual book. Very disappointing. I love these authors but the abridged version isn't even worth the time.
Yes, I love the authors and the actual, physical book. But the abridged version was a waste of time and money. After paying for and listening to this I had to go buy and read the book b/c this didn't do the trick.
I appreciate the fact that the outcome of successful boundaries is discussed. This book points out the reasons to stand firm and an idea of which battles to pick all for the sake of your child's development. It focuses on how to help your child grow in healthy emotional and moral ways.
I find the " Talking to Toddler" has a better structure. It goes according to chapter by chapter. Is easy for us to replay again.
Nope. this is the first one. I am expecting the audio to be the same as the book. The book has more detail explanations. Is hard to read and listen at the same time as we need to jump que when referring to the book.
Boundaries with Kids
This book helped clarify areas of my life where I needed work to create better and clearer boundaries to love and teach my children.
If you don't create boundaries you will come to regret allowing the children to get away with things because it feels better in that moment.
I found this book so helpful that I bought the physical book to reread and map out better boundaries for me and my children.
I loved the insight into problems faced by children and adults alike. He demonstrated solutions to these problems in a relate-able fashion.
