Summary

Dr Shefali teaches us how to control our expectations, embrace the present moment and let go of the anxiety surrounding how best to parent our children. Become the awakened parent you've always wanted to be and watch your children thrive.

All parents have aspirations for their children, but for some these hopes turn into unrealistic expectations. In many cases, this puts huge amounts of pressure on children and has the potential to cause real harm, hindering your child's development. Challenging modern myths on how kids should be, Dr Shefali helps parents recognise children for who they truly are instead of holding on to society's impossible ideals.

Drawing on Eastern philosophy as well as Western psychology, Dr Shefali offers enlightened, practical advice and explains her radically transformative plan which guarantees that you have confident children and a calm and emotionally connected family.

Fantastic insight!

I don't often leave reviews but this book is such an eye opener in parenting. Making one look first at self then outside. This has helped me tremendously in parenting my two sons. They are definitely experiencing a more awakened mummy even if they won't see it as that, but I see the difference in the way in which we communicate and the lack of struggle in getting results. Of course, like everything else it's not a 'one size fits all' and some of the steps need to be adjusted to suit your own family needs. For e.g. the part about teaching your kids to negotiate. I did that naturally from the time my eldest son was able to communicate but at some point it became taxing for all. He would negotiate with everyone including his teachers and that became a challenge for all. So I had to then teach him that not everything is up for negotiation. Some things he has to just trust me and do and we can discuss later.

Overall, brilliant insight!! My parenting will never be the same again.

Shefali Tsabary is a gift to this world!

When I first came across Shefali Tsabary, I walked around in awe for a couple of days, because I could not believe I finally found someone to speak so eloquently about Vipassana applied to every day life. She is so sharp and clear in conveying her message, truly a gift to this world!
I didn't rate the story for this book as 5 because I didn't find a lot of new ideas as compared to the previous materials I have been exposed to. But if this is your first encounter with her, please go ahead and get this book now :)

Best parenting and relationship advice I’ve read

While I don’t like everything about the book it is hands down some of the best relationship and parenting advice I’ve received.

This is exactly what I needed to stop holding on to many of my old patterns.
