Publisher's Summary

Teaching your children when to say "yes" and when to say "no" will help them gain control of their lives. In this remarkable audio guide, two leading psychologists teach parents how to raise their kids to take responsibility for their actions, attitudes, and emotions. They explain the ins and outs of establishing family boundaries and instilling the kind of character in your children that will help them lead balanced, productive, and fulfilling adult lives. You'll learn how to set limits and still be a loving parent, bring control to an out-of-control family life, apply the 10 laws of boundaries to parenting, define legitimate boundaries for your family, and much more. Dr. Henry Cloud and Dr. John Townsend are popular speakers, licensed psychologists, and co-hosts of the nationally broadcast New Life radio program.

    "Way too abridged"

    Felt like it was missing something. I read the hard copy of boundaries in marriage and thought it was dead on accurate. With two small boys, thought this would be a good listen. I was mistaken. To truly absorb any lessons, I need applicable examples, repetition, and a good story line. This was like listening to a couple of college lectures.

    "very good"

    I needed this! I didn't learn hardly any of this growing up.

    The authors gave me principles... and also examples to help me visualize these abstract ideas in everyday life. Very good teaching!

    "Not the same book"

    If you're expecting a recorded version of the book, it's not even close. A real disappointment and waste of a credit.

    "Taking some of the frustration out of parenting"

    I appreciate the fact that the outcome of successful boundaries is discussed. This book points out the reasons to stand firm and an idea of which battles to pick all for the sake of your child's development. It focuses on how to help your child grow in healthy emotional and moral ways.

    "excellent resource, but too short."

    great book that adds specifics to parenting from the original boundaries book. IMO, this book could be expanded with more examples, and points made more applicable. helps you recognize patterns in your own parenting that lead to problems in the future.
