Summary

One fact that is often misunderstood by a majority is that the real role model for children are their parents, as they are the ones responsible for the incorporation of anything good or bad in their children.

The term "Alpha parents", which is also the title of this book, is also wrongly interpreted by many and taken as the assertion of parents’ will and decisions over their children. Instead, it is the building of harmonious relationships and strong family bonds between parents and children.

This book, Alpha Parents, is a profound blend of some highly beneficial ideas that are essential for strong family relationships. It consists of some real-life stories that emphasize the role of Alpha parents and how their behaviors and norms can impact their children.

Family is not merely a blood relationship; in fact, it’s the name of accepting, valuing, and admiring each member of the family and standing with each other through thick and thin. Alpha parents are responsible for incorporating the sentiments of love, kindness, helpfulness, and empathy in their children by setting examples.

If "home sweet home" is a reality, then Alpha parents are the ones who are responsible for practically demonstrating this phrase by inculcating the importance of home, family members, communication, and independence among their children. This book will illustrate the importance of family, home, and the role of parents to make the environment of home a soothing one. 

With the help of short yet attractive stories, this book has demonstrated the family values and the teachings of Alpha parents - how the Alpha parents can lead their children, what should be the method to treat your teens and other family members, how to teach your children right and wrong without imposing your decisions, and how to lead your children to success by creating a friendly environment.

Life is not a bed of roses, and every family has to pass through some hard stages in life. Those hard yet inevitable stages of life may create differences between the family members, but the role of Alpha parents is to keep the family united by listening and accepting the status and arguments of each family member.

This book will comprehensively explain the role of Alpha parents during the dark stages by setting examples and teaching the children how and why sacrifices are necessary for the development and growth of family. Not each member of the family is same, and everyone has to play a role during bad times.

This book played an extremely supportive role

The book is an easy listen in one sitting, or go through its segments and put them into action. There's so much in there though that it's worth a re-listen and marking up the book with notes. Glad I have the actual book vs kindle.

Helpful book.

This book has given me inestimable knowledge and instruments to support my family. The activities are generally useful. The manner in which the book discloses Alpha and how to be generally strong for our youngsters is great. Regardless of whether I locate no valuable administration through this book the data contained inside has been priceless. My family all live with this crippling condition and it's been so useful just to have elegantly composed data clarifying what is experiencing their brains and the psychological abilities that are deferred. Extraordinary book, love this book, grateful!!

Great book giving a thorough overview

Latest, point by point and logical data on Alpha Parents - it is empathetic, viable, and overly usable to enable a parent to comprehend the complexities of Alpha - what it is and what it isn't. It encourages how kids have analyzed route once again from various decades to now. It's a decent book particularly for guardians who need to more readily comprehend their kid with this sickness.

This book helped me understand that both my child

This book helped me understand that both my child and I, fit within a group - and that group is amazing. I learned techniques to help my son channel their emotions and turn those generally perceived as "undesirable" traits into power and victory. It was comforting to feel that many parents do understand what we have to go through; and being candid,

This was very helpful!

This was very helpful! The day I began this audiobook, I was challenged by my spirited 5-year old that afternoon. I used techniques from this book and have to say I was pleasantly surprised! We were able to work through a meltdown in about 15 minutes and she was pleasant and cooperative for the rest of the evening.

I found myself saying many times while listening

I found myself saying many times while listening to the book, “Yes! That’s my kid!” or “Yes! I feel like a terrible parent because it takes me 2 hours to get her to brush her teeth!” But it’s not just a book to explain how to parent a “spirited” child, but it’s a book to help bring some solace to spirited parents by saying “You’re not alone and you’re not crazy.

Actual advice!

I have listened to a few audiobooks on ADHD and haven’t retained any meaningful advice, but this book gives more strategies in an organized and well-explained way. Definitely the best ADHD book for those who already know the difficulties of ADHD, don’t need the background and just need the tools to better address it.

Finally!

As someone who was recently diagnosed with ADHD, I tried listening to many different ADHD books here on Audible. I kept getting very bored (shocker). This book actually is very useful and filled me with hope, clarity, and excitement for the future.
