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.

    "Exactly what the Title says"

    OK if you have a difficult kid of any age, a drama king or queen adolescent that is just slightly or totally out of control then this IS the book you need!!! It teaches some new concepts I will not lie but you will be surprised at just how well they work. On my honor if you use what is in this book you can and will become a stress free, scream free, totally relaxed and cooooooool parent!!!!! This makes parenting oh so easy and fun too!

    "How will his kids do?"

    I have to love these experts who have never turned out a product. His kids are little and could just as well be headed for rehab like other parenting experts. Yes you may control them when they are little but they are smart little critters and the techniques taught here seem to just teach kids how to manipulate adults a bit more.
    Of course we need to be in control when we deal with our kids but frankly this is life and I might be the only imperfect parent left.
    Maybe kids need to know they can make us loose it now and then and the results aren't pretty.
    I am a college teacher and understand that this type of "let them have their space" parenting is raising kids who think everything is negotiable ("Milleneals Rising" Neil Howe, 2000).
    Some of you psych majors better start looking at what made the Greatest Generation and teach us how to put some of that into our kids.

    "HORRIBLE - Don't read!"

    The author acts like not screaming at your kids is some kind of revelation. Just because he wants to scream at his kids doesn't mean the listener does. He just repeats his point over and over again. I only got half way through it. Annoying. I want my money back.

    "Great listen and good parenting advice"

    Listened then told my wife it was helpful and that she should listen. Good practical advice that is more for the parent than how to handle your children.

    "Don't waste your time"

    Do not waste your time listening to this book. This book offers no TOOLS for parents who would like ways to implement techniques on a daily basis. This offers a lot of theories, and nice sounding "stay patient, let your child work it out for themselves" stuff, again, great in theory, but how to you put your theories to work?
