Publisher's Summary

Parenting is not about kids, it's about parents. If you're not in control, then you cannot be in charge. What every kid really needs are parents who are able to keep their cool no matter what. Easier said than done? Not anymore, thanks to ScreamFree Parenting, the principle-based approach that's inspiring parents everywhere to truly revolutionize their family dynamics. Moving beyond the child-centered, technique-based approaches that ultimately fail, the ScreamFree way compels you to focus on yourself, calm yourself down, and grow yourself up. For those of you listening who are parents, know parents, or have had parents, the notion that the greatest thing you can do for your children is to learn to focus on yourself may sound strange, even heretical. 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.

A must read

Excellent narration and information for parents, and anyone who has contact with children. This book should be issued to every new parent. Teaching the author's theory should be incorporated in every parenting class. Regardless of the child's age, this knowledge reaches across all ages. This book helped me grow as a parent more than any other. I think it is even better than Parenting with Love and Logic. I highly recommend it to any parent, especially those at wit's end over raising those precious little crumb crushers.

5 stars

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.
