The level of cooperation parents get from their children is usually equal to the level of connection children feel with their parents. Connection Parenting is based on the “Meeting the Needs of Children” seven-week proactive parenting series that Pam Leo has taught for nearly 24 years. The premise is that meeting children’s biological need for emotional connection creates the healthy, strong parent-child bond children need to thrive - and that bond is also the key to effective parenting.
“Empowering, simple, and undeniably true, Connection Parenting will help to change the face of parenting, as we know it,” says Kali Wendorf, editor of Byronchild magazine.
The author's voice is very monotonous and boring, but the book is great. Very useful advice.

interesting and true that connection should be prioritized in parenting. the book has very insightful ideas
Well thought out and important parenting tools and concepts that have life changing possibilities. Unfortunately the authors voice is dull and droning and makes it difficult to hold ones attention
1- Whoever told Pam Leo she was a good narrator LIED. This is very hard to listen to.
2- She needs to invest in better recording equipment. I could hear every page turn.
3- The unabridged version is not available as an audiobook (as of Sept 2015) and the abridged version is super abrupt. Chapter 6 is literally one paragraph. Which is made even more awkward by the author's recommendation of listening to only one chapter a day.
4- While I agree with most of the ideas/advice put forth in the book, I've come across all of them before in various parenting books, where they were handled/explained better.
Overall: decent book, terrible recording. You can do better.

Any additional comments?
I thought this book was very useful. I had to listen with a friend just to get through it. It wasn't a very exciting book. It was great as a group listening and sharing tool. I think the author had a lot of integrity. She really tied in both the parent paradigm and loving disciplinary approach.
