Has anyone run across good parenting-related books available in audio book format? A previous thread lists several books that look like they would be good. However, I have a lot more time available to listen to books rather than sit down and read them.

My absolute favorite Parenting book is The Philosophical Baby available here, from Audible. It's Very Scientific, while still being very readable (or listenable)

I thought "How To Behave So Your Children Will Too" by Sal Severe (http://tr.im/FUiY) was a really good listen. Good enough that I also got the printed book to share with my wife. it's been hard advice to follow, because it means that you have to have zero-tolerance for behavior that you don't want, but it does work. Once the children realize that you will only ask once, and that there are rewards for being a good listener -- and repercussions for not listening -- they get with the program.

It's best if both parents are on the same page, but even if just one parent does it, it will be effective.

Good luck!
