Scream Free Parenting

So I have a toddler, as some of you guys also do! In an effort to make our home more peaceful and me to maintain my sanity as a full time mom and a full time employee, I found this book. I actually bought it on iTunes for only like $14 for the book, and I've been pleasantly surprised. Now, I know there is no book out there that gives you all the answers, and as we know, all kids are different...but I like his approach. He recommends that you learn to control your own anxiety as a parent, and your children will respond better. I also like the philosophy that you are not responsible FOR your kids, but TO your kids. Anyways, it was only about 4 hours of listening time (2 days commute for me) and I've started to listen to it a second time. Anyone else read it? If not, I recommend it...some GREAT ideas!

Does this book tell me HOW to keep my cool? I will have to buy this asap. Have you ever heard of the book, "Raising Cane?" It is a book for parents with boys. I heard it is great, but have never read it.

That would be Raising Cain. Sorry. :)

BTW the title makes me laugh. There is no such thing as scream free parenting! But we can try right?
