Summary

Create a happy home by raising your children with love and affection, with kind words and clever parenting styles.

The population has been on a decline in many areas in the world. People seem to shy away from parenting altogether. Many factors contribute to this, and in a spirit of research and analytical criticism, the author brings some of these aspects to light.

Following this careful examination, a compilation of new knowledge and reminders of realities is brought forward by the same author, dealing with some of the most common dilemmas of parenting: how to talk to your children, how to get them to bed and stay there, and whether to be strict or lenient. With these fresh beliefs and keen observations, valuable lessons can be learned.

You will listen about things like:

  • How the average number of children per family is affecting the world economy.
  • How important it is to decide to have a baby and which factors to take into account when you do.
  • Why having children can be a joyful and a fulfilling way to live your life.
  • The best ways to give your children compliments without saying the same things over and over again.
  • Insights about a child’s expectation and his or her attachment to the judgment of a caretaker or parent.
  • The difference between authoritative, authoritarian, and permissive parenting styles.
  • How to decide on the best bedtime rituals to put your children to sleep.
  • The best ways to avoid a screaming, tantrum-throwing toddler when they get tired.
  • Ideas about exercises, nutrition, and other elements that determine a child’s health.

This audiobook will really take you to the other side of parenting with examples, funny anecdotes, horrifying mistakes, valuable insights, and wise advice. Don’t wait, get it now!

Wow

The author starts out by a more-or-less rebuke to the western world about neglecting kids by not having big enough families anymore. All the facts make sense, and the conclusions as well. The rest of the book follows the same writing style and helps us understand some of the best ways to deal with your kids, some parenting styles, etc. I think for the price, this is a very valuable audio book.

I learned a lot

You have to appreciate people like Rene Fisher who just say how it is. Pulling in the stats from people who have the weirdest reasons for not having kids or just the most simplistic ways of teaching your children something or giving them a compliment, were refreshing ideas. I think a lot of parents could learn something from this.

And I know, nobody wants to be told how to parent their kids, but it's still a valuable book for anyone who is confident that they are doing something right and could still improve a little.

This is parenting advice

Real stuff here, none of that fluff. The author gets to the point immediately and encourages us to fill the next generation with joy and with something they need. Let's be that selfless generation that feeds the next one and makes the earth spin once more!

A fresh breeze of lovely insights

After listening to this book, I just had to leave a positive review, since it's so full of valuable insights for parents, grandparents, and caretakers. You have no idea how much this stuff matters. I, personally, found great lessons in this 2 hour book. Highly recommended.
