consiousparentingTHE CONSCIOUS PARENT

Transforming Ourselves Empowering our Children

This innovative parenting style recognizes the child’s potential to spark a deep soul-searching leading to transformation in parents. Instead of being merely the receiver of the parents’ psychological and spiritual legacy, children function as ushers of the parent’s development.

Once parents are learning alongside their children, power, control, and dominance become an archaic language. Instead, mutual kinship and spiritual partnership are the focus of the parent-child journey.

Parents unwittingly pass on an inheritance of psychological pain and emotional shallowness. To handle the behavior that results from this, traditional books on parenting abound with clever techniques for control and quick fixes for dysfunctionality.

In contrast, in Dr. Tsabary’s conscious approach to parenting, children serve as mirrors of their parents’ forgotten self.



Why Discipline your child doesn’t work… and what will

This breakthrough new book reveals why the disciplinary strategies we use with our children are ineffective. Dr. Shefali asserts that to parent effectively requires us to develop a deep connection with our children, so that we address the feelings that drive a child’s behavior instead of punishing them. Far from a laissez-faire approach, Dr. Shefali advocates for a high level of parental resolve that majors not in control and domination, but in helping a child develop a sense of personal responsibility. Filled with practical wisdom, this book lays a path to forge a new and empowered relationship with our children.
