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
Awesome book. Very helpful when it comes to dealing with our own emotions. Helped me to change how I look and deal with my relationship with my child.
I am a plastic surgeon by profession A father by heart A trader by choice A teacher by passion A child by curiosity
full of practical comments , you need to listen to it a few times to pick all the nuggets of advice specially if you are like me listening while your stuck in a traffic jam :)
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.
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.
I would recommend this to any parent who is currently struggling with being the parent they want they could be.
very short atte..
Yes, if you need help with parenting get it fast.
I don't know, I am not a big consumer of self help books.
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.
Very Highly as a teaching aid for Parents
None, it stands out as a revolutionary way to think about how to become a better parent and person.
Yes, Screamfree Marriage. Great also.

Extremely helpful. Highly recommended if you ever struggle with how to bring up children or grandchildren.
