Grounded in mindfulness and neuroscience, this pioneering book redefines discipline and outlines the five essential elements necessary for children to thrive: unconditional love, space to be themselves, mentorship, healthy boundaries, and mistakes that create learning and growth opportunities.
In this book you will also discover parenting practices such as setting limits with love, working with difficult emotions, and forgiveness and compassion meditations that place discipline within a context of mindfulness. This relationship-centered approach will restore your confidence as a parent and support your children in developing emotional intelligence, self-discipline, and resilience - qualities they need for living authentic and meaningful lives.

"Shapiro and White's commitment to balanced parenting gives readers motivation to become strong role models." (Publishers Weekly)
the book was tough to listen to. I had trouble starting alert while listening.
there was some basics on science, but it was more presented as fact instead of a topic for discussion. the points made are well researched and heavily repeated to help you remember.
this wasn't what I expected. not my speed, buy not bad either.
Wise, useful, relevant
It sounds like the narration for this book was done by an emulator and not a real person. Very distracting and monotonous to listen to -- which is too bad since the content was excellent and important for parents.
