My kids are still relatively young so I haven't done this but if they were getting into their teens then I would try to listen to this together and discuss what she recommends.Instead, I am applying the principles on this tape (and in her books) with my kids.
I have given this 4 stars because of the repetition. However, it would be a straight (and easy) 5 if I had started with Brown's work with this CD. So if you are a parent and are interested in her work this could be the perfect place to start as it's got most of her key ideas and it's only 2 hours long so you can get a taste during your weekly commute.
Thank you Brene for being brave and sharing your research with us.
