Need A Parenting Audio Book? We Got You Covered
Due to the extremely positive response of our dad audio books that aren't actually about parenting, we've decided to list a few audio books that are actually about parenting so you can step up your dad game.
Feel free to give these a listen and let us know what you think.
First off, I need to call out that these are all Audible selections. I have used iTunes, Audible, and Blinkist and I have to say that Audible is the best. You do pay monthly per the subscription but you get a free book every month and they have deals virtually every week. If you plan on listening to at least one book a month then it's worth it.
Start with audible and get your learning on.
Maybe the perfect audiobook does exist?
The guys voice is stellar so it's interesting.
It doesn't quite hit the 10 hour mark in length...so it won't take you a year to get through it.
And it's a book all about keeping it simple to raise kids that are actually happy and calm. What a concept...less is more.
Raise your hand if you're a dad who needs to do just a little "less". I know I feel that way sometimes.
What a cocky title.
Ok, so the voice sounds like Mr. Rogers which takes some getting used to. Also, this one is a bit more religious than most on this list. I don't mind that at all, but I know those that aren't religious may not like this.
The general concept of this book is to not get lost and forget what's REALLY important.
If you know why you're a parent, you set your dad goals, and you see the big picture of being a dad, then this probably isn't for you.
If you need a kick in the pants and some guidance in straightening things out. This is a strong choice.
Now here is a home run for dads raising boys.
I can't think of a better time to capitalize on the usefulness of this book given the Me Too Movement and the Times Up Movement.
This one is on the shorter side. It essentially takes learnings and training from the Navy SEALs and adapts that to raising your sons. Pretty cool right?
By breaking down combat, threats, and quitters, you learn some great lessons on how to raise your son.
When they talk about being there and being PRESENT, it's some of the realest shit you'll ever hear. Believe that!
If you are raising a boy, this is a must read in my opinion.
So for me 50 questions is super intimidating. I can't remember all that stuff. But, this book is literally 15 minutes long so it's cake to get through and listen to yet again.
Wait, you're not a mom. That's ok. There are such things as stay at home dads and although this book doesn't 100% relate to that, many of these questions are still relevant.
If your baby mama is a stay at home mom or is considering being a stay at home mom, this is a great one to listen to. It always makes sense to provide your input on these types of big decisions and to approach these conversations with knowledge of the subject.
Give it a shot...it's 15 minutes. Probably 3/4 of your drive to work.
Now I'm not a big medication guy. W get all of our required shots but as our child gets older I'd like to continue to teach him how to heal himself with meditation, exercise, concentration, and eating right. Call me a hippie, but there's some bad shit that goes in those meds.
That being said, this is a pretty good book to help with those kids dealing with anxiety and who don't know how to express their emotions.
The reader's voice is boring as hell and you may fall asleep a few times if you listen to this when you go to bed, but the message is solid and there are ways you can get involved and spend time with your kids.
This is a solid read (listen) and well worth it.
I hope there's at least one in here for you that relates to your parenting game. If not, let us know and we'll get on reviewing a few books that are right up your alley.
