Publisher's Summary

The Parental Tool Box contains the largest array of practical strategies and skills assembled in one audiobook for parents and clinicians. The latest research in attachment theory, neurobiology, and evidence-based therapeutic strategies and interventions are integrated into three major sections: the power of words, relationships, & change and personal development.

The content of the audiobook teaches ways to avoid power struggles by creating a family environment of mutual respect. The comprehensiveness of The Parental Tool Box makes it an ideal ongoing resource which helps parents effectively deal with any problematic behavior. Written in a strength-based and practical manner, each section includes home improvement projects to practice the skills introduced. Each tool is examined through the three rs: reframe, replace, and rewire. This breakthrough perspective reframes attitudes, replaces undesirable habits, and rewires the biochemistry/neurology to make lasting changes

The Parental Tool Box is written by two professionals who have each had over 40 years in the field and have practiced all of these tools in real time with both typical and highly challenging youth and families. It contains a vast library of verbal strategies, clear and concise social skills, and relational exercises presented in easy to master formats. Written in a descriptive and specific manner for all parents to understand; it is both a skills manual and a comprehensive parenting resource.

Clinicians can choose any section and use it with parents, children, and adolescents as a tool in the therapeutic process. For parents, each section is finely crafted to help turn the hard work of parenting into a joyful and rewarding experience. It is extremely useful for therapists working with parents of children in out-of-home placements and those working in intensive in-home treatment.

Educators can adopt The Parental Tool Box for use in their classrooms or use its content to improve the learning environment with their students. Additionally, the contents of this audiobook have been used for many years successfully in parent training programs. This audiobook will transform the parenting experience, providing tools for creating a successful relationship between parents, children, and adolescents.

Couldn’t handle the annoying sound clips.

I couldn’t get past 20 min of listening to the insanely annoying sound clips of purring cats, video game beeps, and cheesy kids laughing and crying. His voice alone is soothing and would be so easy to listen to if not for the cheesy sound clips. I wish there were an option to remove them.
I thought this would be a great way to get parenting help without having to take the time to read it as a busy parent. Oh well, back to the kindle.

Hard to learn with all of the terrible sound effects

I have no clue who thought having rooster and token noises among the others every few seconds throughout the narration. It is absolutely distracting and ruins the ability to focus and learn from what should be a serious book. We had to spend money to buy the book a second time so we can read it without juvenile sound effects to see if there is anything to learn.

Excellent Book, Terrible effects

The content of this book is excellent. I will refer to it as my son continues to grow. However, in this audible version, they've added sound effects to highlight keywords. There are so many bells, gluck-glucks, and crying babies, it distracts from the reading. Also, the mix is poorly done. In some cases, you can't hear the reading over the sound effects. Since they are trying to highlight the keywords, you can't hear them and may not know the subject for a paragraph or two. Skip this audible version, just buy the book. It's worth it.

Review for Audible version

The concept of the book is good, but the background sounds are horrible and very distracting
