    "very good"

    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!

    "Way too abridged"

    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.

    "Excellent advice and insight"

    I am a long time fan of the good common sense and truth expressed in the boundaries series.

    These books and their insights have helped me immensely in every relationship and in many seasons of my life.

    This is another excellent book in the series. The focus on setting boundaries with kids reinforces this wisdom as it relates to kids.

    Learning to set good boundaries and keep them is an ongoing challenge but so healthy and worth it emotionally for all involved.

    I found this book helpful once again in my teaching and dealing with my grandchildren.

    I highly recomm

    "Do not waste your money."
    What disappointed you about Boundaries with Kids?

    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.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Dr. Henry Cloud and Dr. John Townsend again?

    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.

    "Taking some of the frustration out of parenting"

    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.

    "Need more examples to illustrate concepts"

    Overall a good book but need more real life examples.

    "Take note if you are referring to the book"
    Where does Boundaries with Kids rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I find the " Talking to Toddler" has a better structure. It goes according to chapter by chapter. Is easy for us to replay again.


    Have you listened to any of Dr. Henry Cloud and Dr. John Townsend ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    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.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    "This book had been very helpful"
    What did you love best about 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.


    What did you learn from Boundaries with Kids that you would use in your daily life?

    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.


    Any additional comments?

    I found this book so helpful that I bought the physical book to reread and map out better boundaries for me and my children.
