What is ScreamFree Parenting?

ScreamFree was created by Hal Runkel, a licensed marriage and family therapist and father of two children. He is a nationally recognized parenting expert.

Hal's main premise is that parenting is not about kids. It's about parents. ScreamFree Parenting believes that the only person you can control is yourself. By focusing on yourself, calming yourself down, and growing yourself up, you will begin to bring about amazing changes in your entire family. ScreamFree Parenting puts the control back into your hands allowing you to lead your family with your highest principles rather than your deepest fears. As you begin to grow in your parenting, you will begin to influence your child's behavior, and in turn you'll find that your child trusts you more. As your child's trust and respect in you grows, so does your relationship and your ability to influence his or her choices and decisions.

Emotional reactivity is behind every bad pattern, bad decision, and bad relationship. Whether we scream, cut ourselves off, overcompensate for others, or take things personally, we end up creating the very outcomes we were hoping to avoid. We need to learn how to calm down.

ScreamFree Parenting will help you:

  • Eliminate power struggles
  • Enjoy your children once again
  • Act with confidence and feel more capable
  • Set effective boundaries
  • Let the consequences do the screaming
  • Raise your kids to be responsible, respectful, and caring people
