Publisher's Summary

Parenting is not about kids, it's about parents. If you're not in control, then you cannot be in charge. What every kid really needs are parents who are able to keep their cool no matter what. Easier said than done? Not anymore, thanks to ScreamFree Parenting, the principle-based approach that's inspiring parents everywhere to truly revolutionize their family dynamics. Moving beyond the child-centered, technique-based approaches that ultimately fail, the ScreamFree way compels you to focus on yourself,calm yourself down, and grow yourself up.

For those of you listening who are parents, know parents, or have had parents, the notion that the greatest thing you can do for your children is to learn to focus on yourself may sound strange, even heretical. It's not. Here's why: we are the only ones we can control. This practical, effective guide for parents of all ages with kids of all ages introduces proven principles for overcoming the anxieties and stresses of parenting and setting new patterns of connection and cooperation. Told in an engaging, conversational tone, this audiobook is sensible, straightforward, and based on the experiences of hundreds of actual families. It will help all parents become calming authorities in their homes, bring peace to their families today, and give kids what they need to grow into caring, self-directed adults tomorrow.

    "Everyone should read this!"

    I absolutely loved this book. It is exactly what I have been looking for. Thank you for taking the time to share your wisdom so that others such as myself can learn from you. I have already started using your suggestions and although it is sometimes hard to take a long hard look at myself and not react, I have found a peace that I have been so desperately seeking. Thank you again for what you do.

    "Great Advice for any parents!"

    Great antidotes. Each approach the author shares real life stories how the principles can be used.Somme of of it I felt I already knew but I personally found lots of great nuggets of information. The real focus is on having control of yourself and being responsible for your reactions towards your kids. Loving and caring for yourself first for the betterment of all around you . Must read. I'll listen to this one a few times again I'm sure this year as I take ownership of the ideas expressed in this audio book.

    Story
    "3 Boys, all with their own personality"

    Loved it. Wish I listened to this 8 years ago. Oldest boy (born July '08), suffers from diagnosed anxiety, currently going through counseling, was already removed from one school, has seen his father (aged 30 at this time) become an out of control adolescent when he or his younger brothers were not perfect angels. This book in one week has changed this little boys perspective on his father. I, being the father, told him I was reading this book and that things were going to change, and boy have they (pun intended). The author was great, he read it very well, and did not skip anything (at the end you'll understand what I mean). I will be rereading this soon.

    "Delightful perspective of parenting"

    I've read numerous parenting books and they all center around sacrificing your own needs and training your child to be mechanical. Scream Free Parents is a MUST READ or LISTEN! Great parenting starts with the parent not the child. Common sense application that we over look as parents because we are so focused on our making our child better that we forget we must make ourselves better before we can teach our child how to hand situations scream free.

    "Really great advice."

    The principles he suggests are simple but really eye opening. I tried a couple of things immediately and saw the results. I will certainly be listening again and following through.

    "The most important parenting book to read!"
    What made the experience of listening to ScreamFree Parenting the most enjoyable?

    Hal's voice is easy to listen to, like talking to a friend you respect, real, nonjudgmental. He get's it. It's not just about screaming, it's about any negative experience you've had with parenting and in life. Hal's approach is both simple and profound.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The truth is, it actually works quickly. I started implementing this book and both my relationship with myself and my relationship with my kids has improved dramatically. I never knew what to do when I felt upset and now I do. I will say, taking real responsibility for yourself is hard work. It doesn't come naturally, but now I have the language to be able to understand it and talk myself through the hard moments.


    What insight do you think you’ll apply from ScreamFree Parenting?

    Everything, I will be referencing this book until I parent from a place of calm composure and I am able to calm myself down every time I start to feel upset with my kids, because overtime I get upset i am actually screaming "calm me down" to my kids like Hal explains.
