This book is a reference book.

This book is not good for Audible , because the author does a lot of looking in the book as a reference to check your thoughts. Now in order for me to get the full benefit of the book, I will have to buy the hard copy. So now I will have to pay twice for this book. For future sell's please let your customers know this about this book.

Your truly,
Tangerine Ellis

Best Parenting Book I've Found

I have a blended family of 7 kids and wish I had this book when they were younger, because it combines all of the information from all of the parenting books I've read over the years, and it even gives practical tips to try out. So helpful that I'm raving about it to all the new parents I know and getting copies for all of my siblings. It's also helpful for relating to people of any age. If you can only read one parenting book, get this one if you want healthy healthy kids!

Great, practical, useful

Loved the examples that can be put into practice right away. Have seen a drastic difference in just the last two weeks of consciously applying these principles with our children. Our relationships with our toddler and elementary school child and and their behavior has improved and I suspect will continue to.

sounds like Siri is narrating this book

What disappointed you about What Great Parents Do?

I wanted to listen to this book while on my commute and found myself working so hard to follow along with the digitized voice narrating the book that my retention of the actual content is practically nil. I also found that the format was difficult to follow as an audio book - because the are a number of times when sections are referred to by number (i.e. number 7, 10, 23, and 49) and it would be useful to have the hard copy to flip back and forth.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Callie Beaulieu?

Anyone but Siri. I have a hard time believing that a real, live person actually narrated this.
