Raising Your Kids by Keeping Your Cool


Raising Your Kids by Keeping Your Cool

Hal Edward Runkel
WaterBrook Press
ISBN: 9781400073726

Hal Runkel, a licensed marriage and family therapist and a former pastor, is America’s newest parenting expert. With a powerful, biblical, and revolutionary approach to parenting, he has produced remarkable results for the many thousands of children and parents he has counseled in his breakthrough clinical work. He has also influenced thousands of families through countless media appearances and through his seminars and workshops at companies, schools, and churches of all faiths throughout the U.S. His new book, ScreamFree™ Parenting, equips parents with all that they need to handle the 21st century child --- without resorting to coercion, force, fear, begging, bribery, or screaming. It is changing lives everywhere.

Runkel exposes a pivotal truth: No one, not even your kids, can make you feel or do anything. They can’t push you over the edge. They are not that powerful. Your emotional responses are entirely up to you. “Parenting is not about kids. It’s about parents,” declares Runkel. “The greatest thing we can do for our kids is learn to focus on ourselves. The only way to retain a position of influence with our children is to regain a position of control over ourselves.”

Being ScreamFree creates a fundamental change in your objective as a parent. To truly be in charge means having the power to create lasting and continued growth, not just exerting power or demanding obedience. It’s inspiring your children to motivate themselves. A ScreamFree™ Parent learns to let go of the need to be “the perfect parent” with the perfect techniques to raising perfect kids. “The truth is that you don’t have to know all the right answers at all the right times in order to be the parent you’ve always wanted to be; you just have to learn to calm down,” says Runkel. It really is that simple. ScreamFree™ Parenting demonstrates:

  1. What to do when you feel overwhelmed --- and how not to flip out
  2. How to give your kids peace of mind --- and not a piece of your mind
  3. How to create physical and emotional space --- and place --- for your children
  4. Rules to keeping your sanity when it comes to disciplining your children
  5. How to give your kids enough freedom to make mistakes, or even hate you
ScreamFree™ Parents make a radical shift, from merely controlling their kids’ behavior to influencing their decisions from a biblical perspective. As a result, they can reach the ultimate goal of every parent --- to launch their child into adulthood where he or she is a self-directed, decisive, and responsible person.
