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.
“Whew! What a relief—a fresh approach to parenting that eliminates the battles, the bickering, the frustrations and guilt while allowing children the space to learn and grow. It’s inventive and doable…parents stay calm, connected, and in control—a miracle. In Screamfree Parenting Hal Runkel gives you the tools to take care of yourself so you can take better care of your growing children. Every parent needs this book—it changes how you think about parenting…and how you parent. You’ll wonder why you ever raised your voice or broke a promise.”
