Publisher's Summary

Popular parenting blogger Rebecca Eanes believes that parenting advice should be about more than just getting kids to behave. Struggling to maintain a meaningful connection with her two little ones and frustrated by the lack of emotionally aware books for parents, she began to share her own insights online. Her following has grown into a thriving community - hundreds of thousands strong.

In this eagerly anticipated guide, Eanes shares her hard-won wisdom for overcoming limiting thought patterns and recognizing emotional triggers, as well as advice for connecting with kids at each stage, from infancy to adolescence. This heartfelt, insightful advice comes not from an "expert", but from a learning, evolving parent. Filled with practical, solution-oriented advice, this is an empowering guide for any parent who longs to end the yelling, power struggles, and downward spiral of acting out, punishment, resentment, and shame - and instead foster an emotional connection that helps kids learn self-discipline, feel confident, and create lasting, loving bonds.

Amazing book

I can't recommend this book enough. If you are on the fence GET IT NOW. The only negative thing I have to say is the narrator was very dry and robot-like. Made it hard to stay focused at times.

Interesting alternative parenting viewpoint

Loved the book. I found the alternative parenting point of view interesting and the real-life practical examples helpful.

The narration was indeed a little robotic, but I did eventually get used to it and it didn't take away from my listening enjoyment.

I wish I would have read this sooner

I absolutely love this book! I wish I would have read/listened to this book earlier in my journey to becoming a parent. After reading some of the reviews I decided to wait on reading it but this will be a book I reference back to many times I'm sure and will be listening to it again soon and will be getting the printed version so I have it available to flip through pages due to it being more difficult to find certain sections with an autio book.
There's a few chapters the author goes over where she's talks about dealing with childhood experiences and how you were raised. This section was extremely helpful and made me question a lot of what I was taught as a child and what I have carried into my parenting practice. Theres references to other books but there's also a ton of examples the author gives in situations where your not sure how to apply positive parenting. I cannot express how helpful this is. I felt almost stuck when I started my positive parentinf journey because I was reading books that didnt have examples! She both addresses toddlers AND older kids. if your on the fence about reading this book or listening to it. Do it. you wont regret it.
My only complaint was with the autio book the person who narrated sounded like a robot which can be annoying at times.

Every parent needs to read this book!

My heart resonates so deeply with the wisdom in this book. As a new parent it can be so hard and confusing navigating how to discipline our child... Do we do what we experienced, what other people suggest, or listen to our inner voice? This book resonates with my inner voice and I am so thankful to have it put into words, examples, and child development facts! Every parent needs to go through this book.

Just join the Facebook group. Don't buy the book.

What made the experience of listening to Positive Parenting the most enjoyable?

There are some good tips and reminders to enjoy this "longest shortest time" with your toddler and give them some slack. I am also a member of the Facebook group and all of this information is there.

What didn’t you like about Callie Beaulieu’s performance?

Siri would have done a better job reading this. Callie sounds like a computer robot and I can't stand listening to her read this. HORRIBLE.
