Informative but the narration is extremely hard work

I don’t believe that this book translate very well into an audiobook.
It is hugely informative and poses some great scenarios, potential consequences and ways to manage.
The book is read without expression. After three hours I can no longer listen to the book due to the monotony of the tone. Whilst it is a great book I would suggest a paper copy.

all parents should be therapeutic parents

This book was fantastic, and I can understand why it's so often spoken about online. But while listening, it struck me that it's actually for all parents. There will always be rudeness, rivalry, delay tactics ... and the aporoach taught in this book feels so much more compassionate and certainly more effective.

Fascinating

This book provides valuable parenting skills for ALL parents. Treating children with empathic love and dignity is actually appropriate in every circumstance. Sarah insights and practicality are compassionate and helpful. I have a premature child with sensory integration issues who manifested so many of these difficulties and it was validating to hear that I had not been ‘soft’ as so many others had accused me of. He is now 17 and predominantly happy and functional in society despite his quirkiness. Thank you for this excellent read!
