Ps I LOVE the cover and all the tenderness it exudes It is such a vivid reminder that children are just innocent souls and that loving them as we live and learn with them is the key factor.
Im a fresh parent of a young baby girl This book, given to my wife and me by my parents, has been something of a bible to me There is a ton of useful advice, thoughts an thought exercises to draw from I think it s worth a reread each year Thank you mom and dad for this gift.
Not that I ve read tons of parenting books, but this was practical and straight forward Each chapter has exercises to complete to solidify the learning and a list of questions other parents have asked the author The end of the book includes a chapter on tips ideas activities to become amindful parent Parenting isn t just about your child, but what she can teach you and what you can learn about yourself along the way We re not raising children, we re raising adults and hopefully confident, caring adults Parents who are calmly and confidently in charge, being Captain of the ship, come across as clear, loving, and capable of making good decisions on behalf of their children, even if those decisions upset t I made quite a few notes as I listened to this found myself wishing I was sitting down with a hard copy instead of trying to remember bits I wanted to note A big theme is figuring out how you can grow from the challenges your child poses, learn the lessons they re trying to teach you I liked the idea of the reincarnation example she gives at the beginning There s a lot of spiritual stuff in here i.
e.
, meditation, mindfulness, etc There s also a fair bit on figuring out how your adulthood triggers come from childhood hurts I didn t care for those parts as much I especially liked the practical exercises for connection mindfulness in the last chapter I also liked the additional resources she references throughout Bought a copy so I could look back on some of the ideas.
Excellent book with very practical suggestions and real life question answers at the end of each chapter to illustrate each point Quite heavily spiritually based, so maybe not as accessible to someone completely foreign to those concepts and that language If you are already have a meditation practice or have read Eckhart Tolle and think, yeah, that all sounds great, but what about my REAL life with kids this is the book for you She knows what she s talking about and explains how to make shifts in thinking behaving so that everyone feels respected, loved and worthy.
