Publisher's Summary

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. Moving beyond the child-centered, technique-based approaches that ultimately fail, the ScreamFree way compels you to focus on yourself, calm yourself down, and grow yourself up.

For those of you listening who are parents, know parents, or have had parents, the notion that the greatest thing you can do for your children is to learn to focus on yourself may sound strange, even heretical. It's not. Here's why: we are the only ones we can control. This practical, effective guide for parents of all ages with kids of all ages introduces proven principles for overcoming the anxieties and stresses of parenting and setting new patterns of connection and cooperation. Told in an engaging, conversational tone, this audiobook is sensible, straightforward, and based on the experiences of hundreds of actual families. It will help all parents become calming authorities in their homes, bring peace to their families today, and give kids what they need to grow into caring, self-directed adults tomorrow.

    "A nice surprise"

    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.

    "Great book. Works for me!"

    Just the book I needed to calm myself down and love my family. Never tired of repeat reading until I can accomplish what is being said in this book. It's working gradually.

    "Informative and powerful book, great narrator."
    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.

    "either you need to hear this or..."
    Would you consider the audio edition of ScreamFree Parenting to be better than the print version?

    Yes, if you need help with parenting get it fast.


    What other book might you compare ScreamFree Parenting to and why?

    I don't know, I am not a big consumer of self help books.


    Have you listened to any of Hal Edward Runkel’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes.


    Any additional comments?

    As my son gets older, the challenges of his life become more complex, starting with gas and proceeding to, most recently, organization and grades. As the complexity of his problems increases, so does the anxiety of parenting. Runkel's book will not shock or amaze good parents, only point out what is really happening when we use volume as a motivational tool. If you ever raise your voice to your children, get it.
