ScreamFree Parenting:

How to Raise Amazing Adults by Learning to Pause More and React Less

Hal Runkel has done it again! THE Parenting Guide for the 21st Century is now here!

Building on 10 years of experience with his New York Times Bestseller, and the chance to work with over 25,000 parents face to face, Hal, in partnership with Penguin Random House, has created the parenting book for everyone with kids 1 to 21. Practical. Hands on. Real World. Funny.


If you’re like most parents, what you want right now is pretty simple: an effective plan for getting your kids to behave and be happy.

You’re probably looking for something else as well – something a little deeper. Like many other parents all over the world, you want to know you’re doing a good job. You want to feel like you can handle anything. You want to feel confident, competent, and hopeful for the future, for both your kids and yourself. (Oh, and along the way, you’d like a little peace, quiet, and respect as well.)

All of the above are possible, even probable, if you can learn to become “ScreamFree.” You can have the structured, rewarding home life you’ve always craved, with respectful kids who are responsible for their own actions. All you have to do is learn to pause, so you can respond more and react less. It really is that simple. Once you learn to control your own emotions and behavior, your children will soon learn how to control theirs.

Now is your chance to join thousands of other parents in a movement of calmer parenting. This practical, effective guide for parents with kids of all ages introduces proven principles for overcoming the stress and anxiety of parenting, forged in the personal trenches of countless ScreamFree families. A peaceful home is closer than you think.

The 10th Anniversary Edition contains:

— A new introduction, with a story about Hal's own parenting journey he's never shared before

— Several new stories about other parents, just like you, making courageous choices to be ScreamFree

—A new chapter on "Parenting in the Digital Age”

— 50 pages of practical answers to real questions we’ve received from parents worldwide the last 10 years

— and much more!


(Make sure it is the 10th Anniversary Edition before you order. Different vendors will change over at different times.)

What People Are Saying...

“We have two children and started to applying what we are learning. It’s working! I can’t believe it! We are much calmer as a husband and a wife and as a father and a mother.”

- Agnes G.​

“ I have been "scream free" for about a year now. I believe your book saved my relationship with my kids. All I can say is...Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!!! I have a BA in Psychology myself but I just wasn't getting the parenting thing right before I read your book.”

- Martha

ScreamFree Parenting is not a first aid but a surgery on your paradigm about parenting.”

- Cheryl H.

“I am the single parent of three children and ScreamFree Parenting was an absolute treat for me. I now have some fantastic tools to pursue that goal.”

- Lisa U.

“ScreamFree Parenting is amazing. If I could just read it every night and practice what I’ve learned from this book, it would make the most amazing difference in my family.”

- Kris B

“ScreamFree Parenting has not only challenged, encouraged and given us practical applications on becoming better parents, but becoming better people! Applying ScreamFree principles into our relationships with our two daughters has proven highly worthwhile but applying these same principles to our marriage, leadership skills and our friendships has changed how we see ourselves and others.”

- Kate H.

“ScreamFree has radically changed my life and my family. Before I read SF I had daily battles with my teenagers that resulted in pushing my kids away into isolation. There was a constant tension in our home which resulted in a lack of peace and love and connection between me and my kids. Now that I am applying SF principles there is continual connection, peace and love in our home. My kids are no longer isolated as I am not trying to control them with my fear. They are taking more responsibility for their own lives and maturing way more than before because they feel respected by me and connected with me. I just wish I had read SF earlier on in my parenting.”
