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.

    "Keep Calm and implement this Parenting style."

    The first few chapters establish the principles of the book. The rest should have been more practical examples of problem and solutions rather than repetition. In any case this book is a must quick read for parents finding themselves in a scream fight with kids.
    I found that this book establishes the foundational concept for continuing on to the next Parenting Book.

    Great book! I'll be listening to it again to reabsorb the lessons.

    "Good book"

    Very helpful in getting you to focus on yourself. Lot of good logic in this book and relevant examples. I enjoyed it and have already seen some positive change with my 4 year old daughter.

    "much welcomed strategies for any parent"

    Solid real life examples.
    in just a few days listening, I felt a renewed sense of power to remain calm, cool, & collected, even with tired, hungry, and boisterous boys both at home & in pyblic...

    the real life examples of adversity faced by other parents & the unlikely simple ways to overcome were stellar

    "Great foundation to build off of"
    If you could sum up ScreamFree Parenting in three words, what would they be?

    Eye opening approach


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

    None


    What does Hal Edward Runkel bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Very personable. Like sitting with a knowledgeable friend, someone supportive, and giving you valuable information, life long lessons.


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

    Yes. It was very hard not to but I wanted to think about the information and absorb it.


    Any additional comments?

    Definitely what I was looking for.
    If you have already been over all the other books focusing on the children and have yet to find your answers this is a great start. Not saying that there are not many great parenting books out there with concepts that are tried and true because there are. What I am saying is this should be considered the backbone to implementing other strategies and for me after trying and having failed at other attempts with one of my very willful and stubborn minded children this book was a breath of fresh air. It may not be a cure all but it absolutely is a great foundation. Not only for the parenting role but your own personal relationships and most of all the relationship with yourself! We have all heard the different sayings “can’t love someone unless you love yourself" yada, yada, yada. But it's true and even though that is not what this book is teaching, it is teaching you to control what you can and all that we can control... is ourselves.

    "Wedding gift for newly weds"

    I wish someone would have told me about this book before I had children. It's a much better way to parent! It just makes sense. I'm inspired to start today!

    "Excellent must read for everyone"

    This author has done an amazing job. If you consider and implement these dynamics into your life I feel you will reap reward beyond what you ever thought you could. Looking at ones self first can be very difficult but is the key to any relationship or problem. Thank you for an amazing book!
