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

insightful and full of parenting wisdom

The book is with lots of interesting and sometimes challenging beliefs. I have found it very insightful, encouraging and going to the root. Great examples to demonstrate and support her points.

Excellent Concepts

The scenarios presented are relatable and real life leaving you feel understood as a parent. While the concepts of conscious parenting seem idealistic they also feel daunting. As a parent I can see the many ways in which my own makeup has been imposed on my child unknowingly and its these aspects where I struggle the most as a parent. This book has opened my eyes and I suppose that is where we all need to start.
