    First of all, I really REALLY don t like the title of this book I don t scream at my child, but of course anyone who sees me reading this will assume that is what I struggle with.Getting past the title though I gave this book 5 stars, not because I think it is the most amazing, revolutionary book out there, but because it is absolutely perfect for ME and helping me interact with my child the way I really want to To me, its not about not screaming, its about not letting your child push your First of all, I really REALLY don t like the title of this book I don t scream at my child, but of course anyone who sees me reading this will assume that is what I struggle with.Getting past the title though I gave this book 5 stars, not because I think it is the most amazing, revolutionary book out there, but because it is absolutely perfect for ME and helping me interact with my child the way I really want to To me, its not about not screaming, its about not letting your child push your buttons Its about the bigger picture what do you want your child to be like in 20 years, and what can you do now to facilitate that Does simply getting him to obey you really mean success Or would it be better to give him choices, allow him to experience the consequences, and then watch him learn to make the good decisions on his own A lot of it is common sense, but putting it into words and being forced to really think about these things is extremely helpful to me.I can t possibly get into all the great information this book offers in a single review, but suffice it to say I flew through Scream Free Parenting in one day, highlighting the points that were important to me, and I will continue to review those points as I try to be the parent I want to be to my child I was adjusting my way of communicating and seeing changes for the better the very first day

    I m generally a calm guy I don t usually rant and rave or scream But I also have a three year old at home, a little person who has perfected the art of pushing my buttons and who can, with a few well timed and well aimed misbehaviors, send me into froths of anxiety, sometimes leading me to raise my voice I don t like being that person.Runkel s book actually doesn t have different insight than other books I ve read It s a new phraseology on the same old arguments, ideas about how to interact I m generally a calm guy I don t usually rant and rave or scream But I also have a three year old at home, a little person who has perfected the art of pushing my buttons and who can, with a few well timed and well aimed misbehaviors, send me into froths of anxiety, sometimes leading me to raise my voice I don t like being that person.Runkel s book actually doesn t have different insight than other books I ve read It s a new phraseology on the same old arguments, ideas about how to interact with kids, on setting boundaries, on being who you need to be to be a good parent Whew, that s an awkward sentence.He uses the term scream to refer to a whole raft of behaviors parents use when they lose their cool, from literally screaming to shouting to giving up Oh, just do what you want to begging or pleading All these are, for Runkel, screams that do a disservice to you and your child Or me and mine, as I read the book.So here s what I get from ScreamFree Parenting 1 Give your kids space and try to lose your anxiety about it If they have their own space, they will develop to be their own people This includes letting children face the consequences of their choices and make decisions for themselves in many things 2 You can t control their reactions, only yours If you re consistent and calm for yourself, principled in your actions, you will serve your children well This includes setting clear and consistent boundaries and enforcing them from a position of careful decision making, not passion or anger 3 You must take care of yourself to take care of your children He uses the oxygen mask on the plane as an example put on your own before you put on theirs Similarly, Runkel urges parents to find fulfillment for themselves and in themselves, not in their children By being our own people and loving our children for being theirs, you provide them both a model for how to behave, and you release them the burden of having to be your support.As I said, these aren t amazing insights, but a new way of phrasing them that I particularly like In the final chapter, Runkel urges that parents act from a position of principle, setting boundaries and punishments because they need to be set, rather than out of desperation It s a cool system and one that I ve already found some benefit from working into my daily interactions with my kids

    Even though my oldest is almost 4 he is showing some early signs of his strong will And I wanted to figure out how to nurture that will instead of killing it and making it succumb to MY will He is so smart and persistent and I never want him to lose those qualities This book helped me see how I could help HIM to be who he needs to be without putting all my eggs in his basket It helped me see how damaging it can be to a child to NEED them to listen and obey your every word or you will lose it Even though my oldest is almost 4 he is showing some early signs of his strong will And I wanted to figure out how to nurture that will instead of killing it and making it succumb to MY will He is so smart and persistent and I never want him to lose those qualities This book helped me see how I could help HIM to be who he needs to be without putting all my eggs in his basket It helped me see how damaging it can be to a child to NEED them to listen and obey your every word or you will lose it They can not be responsible for your reactions It helped me realize that I am here to nudge and offer wisdom and empathy Not demand blind obedience I m glad I got this book now, when this problem is just beginning, rather than later, when I d have to change everything

    just like every parent, I like to read up on what other parents say about being a relaxed, calm parent and how to raise a good kid So far, Hal doesn t have much to say He quotes a lot of parenting movies yes, we ve all seen them He throws in God and The Creator a lot yes, he s religious, what does that have to do with good parenting or anything related to scream free parenting He s supposed to be a family therapist and he s got two toddlers of his own All I ve picked up is that you need just like every parent, I like to read up on what other parents say about being a relaxed, calm parent and how to raise a good kid So far, Hal doesn t have much to say He quotes a lot of parenting movies yes, we ve all seen them He throws in God and The Creator a lot yes, he s religious, what does that have to do with good parenting or anything related to scream free parenting He s supposed to be a family therapist and he s got two toddlers of his own All I ve picked up is that you need to give your kids their own space and respect if you want them to respect you If they want a messy room, then let them reap the consequences Let you kids do their OWN homework and let them learn about financial responsibility by giving them their own money and learn how to save to purchase their own things DUH This may be news and innovative to some over controlling and dominating parents, but not to me, I guess Not sure if I will even finish the book


  5. Sarah B. Sarah B. says:

    This book is written in high Self Help style, and I had to work to get past the terrible writing and into the messages the author is trying to convey Fortunately, it is written in language simple enough for a child to follow, so a little extra work on the way wasn t much to ask Here s an example of how bad the style is The greatest thing you can do for your kids is learn to focus on yourself.That statement might not make complete sense right now It might, in fact, seem downright offensive Wh This book is written in high Self Help style, and I had to work to get past the terrible writing and into the messages the author is trying to convey Fortunately, it is written in language simple enough for a child to follow, so a little extra work on the way wasn t much to ask Here s an example of how bad the style is The greatest thing you can do for your kids is learn to focus on yourself.That statement might not make complete sense right now It might, in fact, seem downright offensive What Turn the focus away from my children and onto myself Isn t that against all the rules No, it isn t I m not promising that you put your children last on the list Far from it What I am saying is that by focusing on yourself, you will have a halthier, happier relationship with your whole family p.9 Yeah, Runkel is going to blow your mind, but if you follow real slow he actually says Let me say that again and repeats text p.14 , in case we readers are too stupid to go back and reread paragraphs we didn t fully understand you might learn something Hear that That s me rolling my eyes Don t worry, Runkel, I think I can keep up.That being said, the book did a good job of describing why we lose our tempers, which is what I picked it up for I was hoping for some strategies for how to stay calm when one s buttons are being pushed, and I was disappointed in that Instead, Runkel seems to be encouraging parents to change their big pictures so that they understand why their buttons are being pushed, why the button pushing is so effectively enraging them, and why they must not engage with it Presumably, being able to resist the rage comes later, after you have changed your whole understanding of parenting Since his new revolutionary understanding of parenting pretty closely matches what I already thought, I don t have much to hope for.But, maybe by continuing to think about these dynamics, eventually I can drain intrafamily conflicts well, all conflicts, I guess of most of their emotion and stop losing my temper To be honest, this was all stuff I was working on in meditation anyway, so I m not sure that this book will help me get there any faster, but it was a nice refresher course with examples from other people s lives.In the meantime, I guess it s back to screaming Serenity now and running out of the room when the whining starts to overpower me


  6. Trish Trish says:

    I enjoyed this book and picked up several tips The biggest tip was that we need to calm ourselves down in order to be a calm person for our children It made me take a look at my parenting style and is helping me stay focused and in control when my 2 year old drives me nuts Of course, parenting is difficult Kids help us to grow up That s his main two messages.

    Not all parenting books are created equal and not all books will apply to every family That being said, this book is EXACTLY what I personally needed to hear The title is misleading, it really isn t just telling you to stop yelling at your kids The philosophy is muchIt taught me a totally different view of parenting so that I won t get mad in the first place Then if I do get mad, it helps me to reconsider what is really going on Some of my favorite tag lines are You are respon Not all parenting books are created equal and not all books will apply to every family That being said, this book is EXACTLY what I personally needed to hear The title is misleading, it really isn t just telling you to stop yelling at your kids The philosophy is muchIt taught me a totally different view of parenting so that I won t get mad in the first place Then if I do get mad, it helps me to reconsider what is really going on Some of my favorite tag lines are You are responsible TO your children not FOR your children Parenting isabout parents than it is about children When we scream at our kids or react, what we re really screaming is calm me down Usually our reactivity causes the very outcomes we most fear No one, not even your kids, can MAKE you do anything feel anything or say anything They are simply not that powerful If you re not under control then you cannot be in charge You can only hold one remote at a time, if you are trying to control someone else, you have given up control over yourself My children don t really belong to me, they belong to themselves What you say and think ABOUT your kids ispowerful than what you say TO your kids No one is never or always anything Stop nagging your kids to do things, allow them to fail in controlled ways.After a few months of trying these principles, I now want to read this book for the 3rd time to rememberof it and tryBut I already see a difference
