Publisher's Summary

Listen introduces parents to five simple, practical skills even the most harried parent can use. These tools will help parents strengthen their connection with their child and help build their child's intelligence, cooperation, and ability to learn as they grow. The audiobook delivers detailed information, accompanied by more than 100 real-life stories from parents who've used this approach to address the root causes of their child's difficult behaviors.
Five surprising things parents will learn:

You don't have to reward or punish willful children to get them to cooperate
Aggressive kids are frightened kids, and there are simple tools to ease their fear so they don't need to lash out
Your willingness to just listen to crying or tantrums, often is enough to heal a child's fears and hurts
Safe play during which your kid becomes the boss, can reveal his hidden feelings - and heal them too
Parents who regularly listen to one another's struggles, without judging or advising, often clear so much toxic emotion that their children benefit greatly

no better parenting guidance anywhere

I have included Patty Wipfler's guidance (long before this book form) in the postpartum care for every single one of my 470 OB patients. It is THAT right-on, smart, clear, and kind. Here is some of what they have said to me: "I feel like she really loves parents!" "It is so good to hear, when times are hard and I feel discouraged and so unsupported (especially at my job), that this is really important work and I'm doing the best I can." "Over and over she says 'parents love their children so much and want the world for them.' Sometimes I can hear her words in my head and I nearly cry, because it is so true, even when it doesn't look like it." Our OB/Family Practice profession has done a poor job of caring for our patients in the postpartum weeks and months. Patty's work and words help us close that gap.

My one criticism, this audio tape is LONG. t's been hard for me to pick out bite-size pieces to share with overwhelmed parents. I read a few pages from her book and record it on CD's for them. But Patty's voice on this audiobook is really good medicine. Wish it could be more overwhelmed-parent-accessible.
