Publisher's Summary

Teaching your children when to say "yes" and when to say "no" will help them gain control of their lives. In this remarkable audio guide, two leading psychologists teach parents how to raise their kids to take responsibility for their actions, attitudes, and emotions. They explain the ins and outs of establishing family boundaries and instilling the kind of character in your children that will help them lead balanced, productive, and fulfilling adult lives. You'll learn how to set limits and still be a loving parent, bring control to an out-of-control family life, apply the 10 laws of boundaries to parenting, define legitimate boundaries for your family, and much more. Dr. Henry Cloud and Dr. John Townsend are popular speakers, licensed psychologists, and co-hosts of the nationally broadcast New Life radio program.

Way too abridged

Felt like it was missing something. I read the hard copy of boundaries in marriage and thought it was dead on accurate. With two small boys, thought this would be a good listen. I was mistaken. To truly absorb any lessons, I need applicable examples, repetition, and a good story line. This was like listening to a couple of college lectures.

very good

I needed this! I didn't learn hardly any of this growing up.

The authors gave me principles... and also examples to help me visualize these abstract ideas in everyday life. Very good teaching!

Great advice

Great advice, would be great to have more practical ways to apply the advice but that may be in the unabridged version which wasn't available to me.
It will help me to be more firm with my kids about what they can and can't do, and stick to it! Thank you.
