Publisher's Summary

Gist is a powerful book that reviews and examines what the journey to adulthood entails, along with a clear look at those parenting efforts that have proven not to work over the years. ''Many hours and much emotional energy are spent in parenting strategies where nothing positive is produced.''

Gist is a fascinating look at many aspects of life that wouldn't typically be associated with parenting. But the result is a new way to think about parenting that is effective, efficient, and enjoyable. The audiobook's focus on life-readiness offers parents a new lens through which to see their parenting interactions and translates to an approach that eliminates many of the power struggles and ineffective patterns that can rob families of much of their joy.

Very helpful

I loved this book and have recommended it to many of my friends. Not everything will be relevant to all parents but it is a practical and sometimes challenging look at how to rethink parenting. Quite a few times I felt myself starting to feel tence and wanting to disagree with the with the authors, then they would give a real life example and suddenly I saw things in a whole new way. I think this book is relevant to all parents (and anyone working with kids) but I think it is especially relevant to parents whose kids are starting to head towards the teen years.
