Summary

Grounded in mindfulness and neuroscience, this pioneering book redefines discipline and outlines the five essential elements necessary for children to thrive: unconditional love, space to be themselves, mentorship, healthy boundaries, and mistakes that create learning and growth opportunities.

In this book you will also discover parenting practices such as setting limits with love, working with difficult emotions, and forgiveness and compassion meditations that place discipline within a context of mindfulness. This relationship-centered approach will restore your confidence as a parent and support your children in developing emotional intelligence, self-discipline, and resilience - qualities they need for living authentic and meaningful lives.

Read by a robot?

If you could sum up Mindful Discipline in three words, what would they be?

Wise, useful, relevant

How did the narrator detract from the book?

It sounds like the narration for this book was done by an emulator and not a real person. Very distracting and monotonous to listen to -- which is too bad since the content was excellent and important for parents.

this was a tough one for me

the book was tough to listen to. I had trouble starting alert while listening.

there was some basics on science, but it was more presented as fact instead of a topic for discussion. the points made are well researched and heavily repeated to help you remember.

this wasn't what I expected. not my speed, buy not bad either.

Can't get through

I can't rate the story because I can't get through the narration. I am very interested in the content and will update my review if I can ever get through the audio.
