ScreamFree(TM) Parenting Released: Parents Can Now Raise Their Kids By Keeping Their Cool


ATLANTA, March 28, 2005 -- Revolutionary parenting book is released to worldwide audience via online outlets such as,, and at retail bookstores nationwide, including Borders, Books-A-Million, and Barnes & Noble.

ScreamFree(TM) Parenting teaches us a radically new approach to parenting, unlike the many parenting techniques in the marketplace, this is the first one that shifts the focus back to the parents, and away from the kids. The result is a more peaceful and calm household, and a way to launch your kids out into the world as the great adults that you want them to be.

“The key to good parenting depends on you, because you are the one you can ultimately control,” says parenting expert and family therapist, Hal Runkel, LMFT. “If you make sure you behave - even when your kids misbehave - then you have a greater chance of positively impacting the situation, any situation. Let’s face it: parenting is the hardest thing you will ever do - but it can also be the most rewarding.”

By becoming a ScreamFree(TM) Parent, you learn to let go of the need to be the perfect parent with the perfect techniques to raising perfect kids. “The truth is that you don’t have to know all the right answers at all the right times in order to be the parent you’ve always wanted to be; you just have to learn to calm down,” says Runkel. It really is that simple. By learning to focus on calming your own emotional reactivity, you begin to make decisions out of your highest principles (instead of reacting out of your deepest fears). And what does this do for your kids? It teaches them to do the same.

The ScreamFree Principles which are outlined in the book ScreamFree(TM) Parenting: Raising Your Kids By Keeping Your Cool teach you:

-- What to do when you feel overwhelmed - and how not to flip out.
-- How to give your kids peace of mind - and not a piece of your mind.
-- How to create physical and emotional space and place for your children.
-- How to give your kids enough freedom to make mistakes, or even hate you.

ScreamFree(TM) Parents are raising their kids to be self-directed: the kids learn to make their own decisions, and to take responsibility for the consequences of their actions. And Mom and Dad are right there with them. Instead of screaming, getting angry or becoming emotionally reactive when their children make mistakes, ScreamFree(TM) Parents are helping children learn through those consequences, staying calm, cool, and connected through the whole process.

“Parenting is not about kids, it’s about parents,” declares Runkel. “The greatest thing we can do for our kids is learn to focus on ourselves. This makes for a radical shift, a shift from controlling your kids’ behavior to influencing their decisions. As a result, you can reach the ultimate goal of every parent - to launch your child into adulthood where he or she is a self-directed, decisive, and responsible person.”
