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.

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.

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.
loved it, moving on to scream free marriage -Zzzzzzzz-zzzzzzzzz nnn(kkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkk kkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkk kkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkk kkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkk kkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkk kkk
