Review

"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."

This book made me review my parenting style and look more closely at parenting for the long-term. It was refreshing to read a parenting book that puts the focus on the parent rather than the child - Hal's approach made a great deal of sense and has been fairly easy to implement.

By Donald Mitchell HALL OF FAMETOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 6 Mar. 2006
Format: Paperback
When our youngest child went off to college, the school's president told us that many parents cannot let go. They call before, during and after every class. They help out with homework over the Internet. They want to hear about every stumble and bruise. The parents act like they are students in terms of how often they contact advisors and administrators on their children's behalf.
You can imagine what these kids are going to be like when their parents are ill or die. They'll feel like the world has ended. Is that any way to be a parent? I don't think so.
I like having children who become responsible, effective adults. I have four of them, and I'm happy with how it all turned out.
At the opposite end, you see parents going nuts because their two-year-old drops a spoon on the floor in a restaurant . . . again . . . and again . . . and again. We've all been there. We've all wanted to go nuts. But it's not good for anyone if you do.
ScreamFree Parenting gives you solid, realistic advice for how to handle those years from 2-18 so that your children end up the way you would like them to be . . . as themselves in a responsible life. . . and not as robots ordered around by you.
Hal Runkel does a good job of explaining how setting limits, letting children make mistakes and learn, and being calm make for a wonderful difference. I was reminded of the importance of calm last week when our local high school put on a one act play written by the students that described a 9 year-old girl being driven crazy by her parents' fights. Calm is good for children. They will eventually learn calmness from you . . . if you are a good role model.
So start to help your kids . . . by working on you!
I wish I had read this book when I was a new father. It would have saved lots of anxiety for everyone.
Nice going, Mr. Runkel

The book has some good intentions and points. If you are a screamer, I think this definitely is a good book to read. The premise is that it's not your child that has a problem, so why scream at them to try to fix it. Look at yourself and your attitudes.

I disagreed with some of the boundary and limit setting examples, because it really felt as a disguised form a cruelty.

If you are not a screamer parenting, relatively calm and so forth, then you don't need this book.

I bought this following the reviews and its rubbish. It's so annoying it doesn't actually tell you anything, no specifics, just waffles on. The whole book could be summed up in a chapter. The title explains the book, keep calm and carry on, and you don't need this book to tell you that.

A lot of reference to God in this book. Not what I was expecting. Would not recommend to another parent.
