A new recording for the 10th anniversary of this parenting staple, on how parents can control their own behavior instead of unsuccessfully attempting to control their kids. Now with new information on keeping your cool in the digital age, examining the new wave of calm parenting, and dealing with defiant teens. 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. ScreamFree Parenting compels parents to focus on themselves and control their own emotional reactivity in order to form stronger, more rewarding, and more fulfilling family relationships. This new, revised edition is more listener focused. Hal Edward Runkel includes updated practical applications of the foundational Screamfree principles, giving parents new ways to deal with their child's increased access to the Internet, and all of the potential problems that come with that instant connectivity. The revised edition will also include a new preface, along a new Part Five detailing the practicalities of using Screamfree principles with teens and technology. A Q&A section will cover a wide range of topics including separation anxiety, single parenting, how to dole out allowances and chores, and how to deal with lying.

Professional reviews

"Hal Runkel, a marriage and family therapist and founder of ScreamFree Living, Inc., offers sage advice for parents fighting daily battles with their kids. Runkel provides a system for parents to improve themselves and their family relationships through a down-to-earth philosophy of mutual respect, self-care, and consequences. Runkel's wisdom and calming voice are particularly valuable for parents with kids who know how to push their buttons. Runkel urges parents to control themselves in order to maintain control at home. The audiobook is loaded with real-life examples of parents who have turned things around at home. This production illustrates the way Runkel's program works and provides some useful entertainment.
