Summary

Turning the traditional notion of parenting on its head, Dr Tsabary shifts the epicentre of the parent-child relationship away from the standard parent-to-child 'know it all' approach to a mutual 'parent-with-child' relationship in which the parent learns alongside the child.

Parents unwittingly pass on an inheritance of psychological pain and emotional rigidity to their children. To handle the behaviour that results from this, traditional books on parenting abound with quick-fix techniques for control and behaviour management. In contrast, by following Shefali Tsabary's philosophy and the advice in The Conscious Parent, you will begin to learn from your child, accept who they are and not only feel closer to them, but also more in touch with yourself.

As you develop both emotionally and spiritually, so you will feel more confident in regard to raising well-adjusted, happy children.

Enjoyable and enlightening.

Really enjoyed listening to this book. The authors voice is so soothing and the tone of the book is unpatronizing and empowering. Certainly an eye opener with a few very relatable situations. Wish I had a book like this at the start of my parenting journey. It has made me think more before I react to a situation, asking myself why I feel the need to say/do/feel the way I do. I have already seen improvements in my own family life. Highly recommended book.

Love it!

This book is great as it’s supported my idea of letting my children grow up to be who their meant to be without me dumping my emotional baggage onto them.

I’m going to start listening to it again!

If I had this book 18 years ago...

I could have saved reading many other books and saved lots of time running around trying to 'fix' issues. However, it's never too late to right wrongs so I will approach parenting with even more love and enthusiasm to help our gifts from God to be what God wants them to be xxx

not worth it

this told me nothing. I have just my listened to parenting from the inside out which is so insightful and helpful. I'd recommend you listen to that instead. this is just waffle.

Emotional but essential listening!

The epiphanies have been socking me in the face for days now. Thanks for that, Dr. T... ;)

Useful points

The author makes useful points about raising children. Rebuilding our own sense of self so our children can benefit from us being clearer and more in touch with our genuine self so that they can, in turn, have a better chance than we did growing up with unconscious parents.

Brilliant and so enlightening!

This book does only define what conscious parenting is all about but as well provide guidance and example of what conscious parent does. This isn’t just parenting book, it’s a self-transforming books for adults! Just superb! Thank you for sharing your wisdom.

for parents

Every parent should read this book to learn about themselves and their children. Would recommend it to counsellors or any professions working with children and teenagers.
