Every kid wants not only cool parents, but parents who keep their cool no matter what. Kids want parents to remain unflappable, even when they flip out. Turns out that's exactly what they need. Screamfree Parenting is the principle-based approach that's inspiring parents everywhere to truly revolutionize their families. Moving beyond many of the child-centered, technique-based approaches, the Screamfree way compels parents to focus on themselves: growing up and calming down themselves. By staying both calm and connected to their children, parents will begin to operate less out of their deepest fears and more out of their highest principles, revolutionizing relationships in the process.

Parents are facing the toughest challenge of their lives. They want to create a loving family environment filled with mutual respect and cooperation… but they find instead that human nature and the influence of our culture combine to produce an atmosphere of anxiety, exhaustion, and far too much screaming. Perhaps you can relate!
Whether you scream at your children or not, you no doubt feel anxious about them and their choices. You worry how they’ll turn out. Unfortunately for parents, many of the techniques some experts present only seem to make matters worse. Hal Edward Runkel has discovered why: Parents are spending far too much time orbiting their lives around their children. They need to return the focus to themselves. They need to grow up and calm down.
ScreamFree Parenting is about taming your reactive responses to your deep anxiety. Rather than learning new techniques, you’ll discover the liberating principles, based on scriptural truths, that are inspiring parents just like you to revolutionize their family life. Principles that will enable you to remain cool, calm, and connected with your children, no matter what.
Learn how to parent less out of your deepest fears and more out of the highest principles in ScreamFree Parenting.
