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.
