"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.
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 listen for parents who are trying to find a balance between tough love and freedom for their children.
"Taking some of the frustration out of parenting"
I appreciate the fact that the outcome of successful boundaries is discussed. This book points out the reasons to stand firm and an idea of which battles to pick all for the sake of your child's development. It focuses on how to help your child grow in healthy emotional and moral ways.
"Wonderful Book "
I loved this book! I would recommend this to all who have kids all ages. I wish it was longer.
"Fantastic! the best book of the genre I have ever"
this book is excellent probably the best of the genre I will ever read. pure and true.
"Not the same book"
If you're expecting a recorded version of the book, it's not even close. A real disappointment and waste of a credit.
"a must read"
amazing knowledge to raise our kids you can't read this and not become a better parent
"Excellent advice and insight"
I am a long time fan of the good common sense and truth expressed in the boundaries series.
These books and their insights have helped me immensely in every relationship and in many seasons of my life.
This is another excellent book in the series. The focus on setting boundaries with kids reinforces this wisdom as it relates to kids.
Learning to set good boundaries and keep them is an ongoing challenge but so healthy and worth it emotionally for all involved.
I found this book helpful once again in my teaching and dealing with my grandchildren.
I highly recomm
"Do not waste your money."
This BOOK is awesome but the audible/abridged version is a total waste of time. Not even close to the actual book. Very disappointing. I love these authors but the abridged version isn't even worth the time.
Yes, I love the authors and the actual, physical book. But the abridged version was a waste of time and money. After paying for and listening to this I had to go buy and read the book b/c this didn't do the trick.
