Publisher's Summary

Do you want to be a better parent? Do you want to raise great children?

Raising a family, and particularly young children, is a lifetime commitment and no easy feat. From the moment of birth, parents are tasked with the job of shaping their children's life, teaching important lessons, and providing them with strong morals and values. This book addresses the most difficult of children to raise (strong-willed) and equips parents with the leadership skills required to raise such children.

This book is written from a diverse perspective of world views. As society changes, parents often find themselves left behind and feeling increasingly powerless to be effective parents. The techniques outlined in this book are universal and will help you, even if your child is not strong willed.

This book teaches a balance between traditional and modern parenting skills. This book is about combining the available methods to find an approach that suits you and leads to a well-balanced child. This book caters for the diversity in culture, religion, and society. This book seeks to present information in a simple non-judgmental way that inclusive of all world views (religious, non-religious, single parent or traditional family structures). This book is about finding the right balance for you and your child's development.

Terrible!

This audiobook is terrible! The book itself is unhelpful, as it is filled with trite, nonspecific advice without useful tips or application guidelines. At one point, the author simply says you should decoupling your child. Ok, how? I need specific strategies that work.

The reading is not good either; the reader rushes through the text with little expression or variance in tone or reading speed. As I'm driving when listening, it is difficult to listen to and keep up. The reader also mispronounces words.

I definitely wish I had not purchased this book and would recommend passing on it to anyone who is thinking about purchasing.

What a lame and stressful voice this narrator has.

The narrator sounds like an automatic gun machine. Tatatatatatattatatatatatatatata. No breathing, no ups and down. Speaks very fast, no punctuation, and with a very boring voice. Seems like she is frustrated and depressed. If the good is good, I'll never know because I can't stand her lame very fast voice. So sad I won't be able to finish this audio.

Worst Audibook I've listed to, ever!

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

No one. The title of the book is "Parenting the strong-willed child" and there were next to no pieces of advice for actual strong willed children.

Has Parenting the Strong-Willed Child turned you off from other books in this genre?

Not at all. I will just not purchase books by this author or read by this narrator.

Would you be willing to try another one of Lauralee Fiebrink’s performances?

Absolutely not. She is BY FAR the worse narrator I've listened to and I'll be sure to check all future narrators in my future purchases. She's extremely monotone and quite frankly, boring to listen to. She should NOT be in this field of work.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Parenting the Strong-Willed Child?

Toward the end of the book, the narrator even got tongue-tied and had to start her sentence over. That should have been edited out of the book.

Any additional comments?

This is the first audible book I've purchased that I've been so disappointed in.
