I couldn't stop crying. After countless counselors, therapists, evaluations and doctors finally I've got an answer. The author describes my son my struggles even my inner conflicts to a t. Just before I completely gave up you gave me the tools to save our family.

What made the experience of listening to The Explosive Child the most enjoyable?
It spoke of a child that few experience and even fewer understand. It spoke of my daughter. I would not trade my daughter for the world, and I certainly wouldn't change the beautiful particularity that makes her who she is.... with that said she can drain the life out of me at times. If you have an explosive child you will understand what I mean. If you have other people try to tell you what to do (and you wish they wouldn't), you feel incompetent, or worse as a parent, even though you do EVERYTHING in EVERY parenting book you could get your hands on to a T, this book is for you. I started to cry when he started to describe just who my daughter is, and was relived I wasn't getting it all wrong. This book helped My wife and I tremendously and i recommend it to all fellow Explosive Child Parents
What does Ross W. Greene bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
I love how he reads it, he has a compassion in his voice, I always like when the narrator is the author
What did you learn from The Explosive Child that you would use in your daily life?
How to see things the way my child see them and work with that to accomplish what we both really want.
Any additional comments?
GET THIS BOOK, if you have a child that is explosive, work with one, care for one, or know someone who does

For me, this was a rollercoaster of emotions because I have a child who the audio describes to a T and I'm also the parent with the typical replies as described, the feeling of guilt I felt to the relief to find a very functional plan which could help my family a LOT was overwhelming but I cannot wait to put my plan (or 3) into action!!!
As this is abridged I wonder what detail from the book we are missing. Is this enough to do what we need? It's a cheap audible title as it was q copy of the cd, do designed for two CDs clearly.
As for content it's okay but nothing radicle other similar tiles haven't covered.
This book helped me put into words the problems we have with our son and is helping us manage day by day...

Had some great ideas on parenting challenging children, would have liked to hear the whole book though.
