One size fits all parenting advice

One size fits all parenting that is not always differentiated between the ages. This book seems to have been written for generations of 20-30 years ago before the advent of cell phones, the internet, and streaming with a lame attempt at updating the content. The examples are unrealistic and always result in compliance. No compliance? Then you better seek professional help??? At least they changed their advice on corporal punishment and, in hindsight, hitting your child was bad advice. Shaming, scare tactics, and examples of making up ludicrous things that will happen to your child like the brain turning to mush if you watch too much tv. Some of the worst child rearing advice I have ever received and it was very hard to get through even at a speed of 1.5. There are better parenting books.

great parenting book

Very good for parents of kids of all ages. I didn't agree with everything, but overall some great concepts for parenting. I definitely can away with a new approach to parenting.

Excellent!

Loved the content and the specific examples used to teach material. Easy to listen to and follow even if you only listen for 5 to 10 mins on your commute.

How to Rear Children that Stop Listening

Disappointing overall. Too much of the book is conjecture. I preferred the books written by Dr. Siegel and Dr. Bryson (The Whole Brain Child) because they substantiate theories with scientific research (as opposed to “research” that consists of a few letters they received from a small population segment).

Finally, the narrator’s illustrations of parent-child communications often sounded condescending and / or demeaning. I find that children and adults alike tune me out when I speak in such a manner. When that happens, the message falls on deaf ears and the value of the message is lost.

why did I not head the ratings??

I simply can't listen to anymore. I thought I knew the broad concept and would fully endorse this book- NOPE! some things like allowing kids to be late, be cold, or be in financial stress in order to learn from their mistakes- yes. I agree with this wholeheartedly. but singing an "uh oh" song when preschool kids are testing boundaries?? I don't think so.
I really wanted to love this book based on how many times I've seen it mentioned in foster and adoption parenting, but nope. Can't listen to another minute.

"Wow" very informative audiobook for all parents.

This book points out alot of important obstacles that parents have to deal with when growing up children at many stages in their life. It had a way to out thinks in perspective and insight. it's a open minded approach to this generations parenting struggles. only issue I had is it was longer then it needed and kinda dragged towards the end.

I wish I read this BEFORE I had kids.

This book was great and I highly recommend reading it either before having kids or when your kids are in the infant stage of life. From the Uh-Oh song to the pearls of wisdom, this book benefits any parent willing to listen.
