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.

This easy to listen to, hit-you-between-the-eyes-with-the-truth version of how not and why not to react the way we parents pretty much all do is really something special. It'll make you cringe, then it will make you reframe what you do, and reframe how you view interactions that you witness. The best part of all is that once you listen to this a time or two, you automatically change the way you respond to your children.
I doubt if this will make me a perfect parent, but it has already made me a better one.
I thank this author, and so do my sons.

Can this book truly and dramatically help your relationship with your children, spouse, parents, etc...In my opinion, yes.
My parenting challenge is not difficult or extreme. I never really thought that I had to improve my parenting style or approach a great deal. But I did have a progressively difficult time with my 8 year old in the last 6 month. So I got this book with a credit. And I have noticed a difference within a week with my child....and my spouse, and myself.
If you think you could use parenting relationship advice, listen to this book. If you don't think you need to read this book, then you definitely need to...
It is applicable to any parent with children of any age. Make sure you read past the first two chapters. From there, you will be hooked.

I don't know about others, but it helped me
Would you consider the audio edition of ScreamFree Parenting to be better than the print version?
I don't know. I don't have the print version.
What did you like best about this story?
It taught me how to handle my own feelings and react better to my kids needs.
Have you listened to any of Hal Edward Runkel’s other performances? How does this one compare?
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
Not really ...
Any additional comments?
Before "reading" this book, I used to search the internet to see if there are any other parents who hate being parents. Now I love it, honestly! My relationship with my kids changed soooooo much I can't even describe it! No idea if this book will help other people, but did the job for me! Thank you!
