Publisher's Summary

If you’re a parent who yells and screams at your children on a daily basis and constantly feels like you’re at your wits end, it’s time to find a new communication strategy that is not only more effective, but also won’t make your blood pressure skyrocket. 

Kids can be downright frustrating. 

They don’t like to listen, they know exactly how to push your buttons, and they even seem to get some sort of pleasure from driving you up the wall. 

This behavior can sometimes make parents get upset. Angry even. 

Unfortunately, that’s not healthy for you, and it’s not healthy for your kids. 

Gone are the days when fear was the parenting tool of choice. 

Raising your voice, or your hand, will not teach your child the valuable life lessons you hope to instill in them.

But what can you do in the heat of the moment when your blood is boiling and your anger is rising?

You can turn to Anger Management for Parents.

In this book, you’ll learn all about the root of your anger, why it’s harmful to everyone involved, and most importantly, how to let go of your anger and parent effectively without it. 

You’ll also learn why parental anger has more to do with you and your experiences than anything your child is doing. 

In addition, you’ll discover: 

  • Calming strategies to help you move past anger when you feel it growing
  • A look at emotions close to anger that you will also experience as a parent, and how to deal with those
  • How managing your anger as a parent can help you in other areas of life
  • Why becoming more emotionally intelligent is an important step for all parents
  • How to use your newfound skills to teach anger management to your kids
  • And much, much more! 

Parent-child bonds are formed not through yelling and anger, but through love, trust, and effective communication. 

Children who grow up with parents who don’t learn to control their anger are at risk of becoming violent in their own relationships. 

On the other hand, children who are raised in calm households where communication is valued learn to relate to others, manage their emotions, and trust their parents. 

Which version do you want your little one to be? 

It’s time to let go of anger and learn how to parent from a place of peace. If you’re ready to discover the strategies, click “buy".

Content woefully lacking. Narration is choppy and unnatural.

I’ve listened to dozens of Audibles on parenting, child development, and psychology (and a few on anger management), and my education covered the topics. I usually choose highly-rated audibles by authors whose education and work are in the field, or at least is complimentary.

Unfortunately, this is the second book I’ve given only one-star.

CONTENT
Pros:
- If you’re a new parent who hasn’t done any online research to find resources or helpful info, aren’t interested in doing so, and, respectfully, are just sort of clueless on basics of empathy and psychology, then this book may serve as a primer for books that are actually educational and helpful.

Cons:
- where to beginning… I guess to start, you can (and probably already have) find all of this info and so much more that is well-presented for free online in print, video, and podcast.

Worse yet, some of the info presented conflicts with well-established research. For instance, the author notes that going to the gym can be a helpful practice (true) but then enthusiastically asserts that as a bonus, paying for the membership is a good source of motivation to continue going regularly. Numerous studies have concluded that paying is NOT a wise or enduring source of motivation. It is finding intrinsic motivation that is among key elements. So on this point, one can reap the many benefits of improved fitness without a gym membership.

- Folks usually buy these sorts of books to learn and find helpful strategies. The content couldn’t be more basic and obvious. As in, statements on the level of shouting at a kid can hurt the kid’s feelings, then just leaving it at that or maybe following up with a half-A’d attempt to provide the beginnings of a solution, but not explaining the what, why, or how.

For instance, the book states there are plenty of resources online - and that’s it. Ummm… could you narrow that down a bit to a few that you professionally recommend? To be fair, there are some resources listed in at the end of the book, though it’s better to offer a few highlights while the topic is being covered, with some additional resources listed at the end or in a free downloadable PDF. Best to not just dump some at the end as an afterthought.

- Some other obvious recommendations… things to do: go to a park, go on a date to dinner or anywhere.

- again, recommendations just lack depth. It’s great that the author recommends meditation. Research does very much support this. However, the book just stops there and doesn’t provide any sort of actionable, evidence-based advice. This would have been a good time to point the reader towards a couple types of meditation that the research supports for use with anger management.

- talk on parenting styles really could have used more depth. Honestly, it could have used more words of caution. Don’t gloss over concerning details for fear of upsetting someone. Clarify what we know of how styles are detrimental. And if you’re gonna say one that is more detrimental can work with some “tweaks” then for kids’ sake, talk about the tweaks in detail. …that’s why we bought the book.


NARRATION
Pros:
- The narrator does have a pleasant voice. Among the nicest I’ve heard.

Cons:
- The book is basically read without regard for sentence structure or even a normal way of speaking. Instead, it is read in chunks of one to three words at a time with short pauses between. I assume it’s an attempt to better articulate, though it does the opposite. The excessive pauses are distracting and somewhat annoying. And to be blunt, the content is so basic and obvious that such an effort to articulate it just comes off as patronizing. By reading sentences more fully with pauses at appropriate times, this narrator would dramatically improve - just my opinion.

- The mic settings are poorly configured in some sections. There’s a bit of distortion. It’s not a major flaw, but it’s an easily avoidable one that a professional or even avid amateur recording shouldn’t have.

Very straightforward

This audiobook is so easy to listen to (even when you are exhausted and can't see straight) and the strategies are so easy to implement! Most parents don't have time for complicated plans and this is not one of them! Highly recommended!

This has no tools

I was hoping for some effective strategies to help me be a more patient parent but this book provides nothing of the sort. The narrator did a very good job, but that was it.

Worth it

I’ve listened to a lot of audiobooks before and I can definitely say that this is one of the best books I’ve read/listened to. It walks you through the steps and strategies to control your anger. We’re all humans just like what the author says. Very worth the price!
