This book is like having a conversation with your best friend about parenting and relating to her/him completely!

This book is NOT a "how to" book and doesn't preach any methods or try to sell a new parenting fad. Brene talks about a handful of subjects associated with raising children and then draws on her personal experiences and scientific research to teach how we can recognize and respond to the emotional development and needs of our children. She is amazing because she shares her and her family's personal stories that any parent can relate to; the book never feels as though she is talking down or telling you how to be a 'better' parent. Brene has a unique and rare ability to teach a reader/listener tools by sharing her experiences and subsequent analysis of her own parenting experiences.

I preordered this book and it was well worth the wait! I've now recommended this 'book' to all of my friends. I'm a little bias, as a I am a huge Brene Brown fan. The format of this book is in 'sessions' which really helps to conceptualize each of the topics. I chose the audio book format so that I could listen to it with my husband. Listening together had benefits I never considered, as we were able to listen to it together (in the car) and pause the book to make comments and have discussions at the end of each segment while things were fresh in our minds. Brene is the narrator (many people complain when there are others narrator her other books), she is very easy to listen to.

Best parenting resource I have ever come across. Life changing. So great for learning to instill perserverence and work ethic into children's lives.

This is a cd I should listen to once a week! It deals with raising children and the struggles that we face everyday:).... I have an 18 month old and this cd helped tremendously! You don't have to raise your children like your parents raised you!;)

This is truly the best parenting book I have EVER read (or listened to). Hands down. I've listened to it twice, and plan to revisit it again; it was life-changing. I have consumed many parenting books, and this one really hits home, dealing with underlying issues that most other books ignore (the importance of self-worth (how parents model this), the difference between guilt and shame and learning how to make connections).

The recording is spoken by Brene Brown herself (not an annoying narrator). It is easy and very engaging to listen to. I wish she read all of her audio books. If you have read other books by Brene Brown, there is some redundancy of information, but this one clearly applies her ideas to parenting in a new way. It is worth listening to; I highly, highly recommend this.

This is a CD of one of her talks. It's good, but it's the same information that is in her books.

This is a deeply compassionate view of parenting. Just listening to it helped me to shift some of my responses to my daughter and son, helping us all feel more connected and understood.

This work of Brene' affirms the positive we are already doing as parents and gently nudges us to wake up and make some changes in other areas. A must read for all parents...new born to empty nester!

GREAT lessons. It has helped me remember nothing is perfect in parenting (or life) and to enjoy even the most embarrassing situations. Like when my 18 month old, who's obsessed with tags, wants to carry my huge thong underwear around while she holds the tag and sucks her thumb. I wasn't in the mood to fight over handing over my thong one day, so let her carry them into the car (planning to take away before entering a business). As I am getting her out of car, she is holding my HUGE thong underwear, sucking her thumb, when up pulls someone who is highly entangled in a litigious situation with my work (and I am very involved). The person just gawked at my kid holding some thong underwear. That's what I call imperfect parenting. I own it.
