Publisher's Summary

Nationally acclaimed parent coach and trainer Tina Feigal returns with this revised edition of her book, formerly titled The Pocket Coach for Parents. With new content on trauma-effective parenting, Present Moment Parenting: Your Guide to a Peaceful Life with Your Intense Child will help you:

  • Understand the connection between the child's heart and brain
  • Recognize how the brain responds to stress and trauma
  • Learn effective parenting strategies to decrease intensity and create peace at home

There are many reasons a child doesn't respond to typical parenting techniques - a mental health diagnosis (such as ADHD or ODD), a life challenge (such as divorce or removal from home), autism, attachment issues, giftedness, physical or emotional trauma - or simply being ''hard to handle". Whatever the root cause of the intensity, Present Moment Parenting will give you the tools you need to create a peaceful life.

Great Audio book read by the Author

I had heard great reviews about Tina Feigal and finally took the plunge. As a busy parent, the audio book was helpful and easily digestible. You could feel the authors love of kids AND appreciation for PARENTS as well. This books takes decades of brain research and childhood development and offers it up in simple easy strategies for any parent. I am a Mom of two very different boys and the stregegies work for challenging behaviors and simple relationship building as well. I even tried Tina's DO-OVER stretegy on my older, strong willed child. At first he pushed back, but after I persisted and gave myself some Do-Overs, we both thought it was brilliant. If something comes out wrong, or bad behavior rises to the surface, no worries...the do-overs allow us to right our wrongs by trying again. Any behavior correction that ends in postive connection and shared laughter is a win in my book. And the "SEE ME" letters to my kids...both boys pulled me aside and THANKED Me...who would have thought two boys could still get so sweet. GREAT Book...would recommend to any parent. I actually felt better as a mom just having read it! If you are looking for a way to deal with challenging behaviors and still have a realtionship in tact as they get older, this book is for you!

Great advice!

This is an important book. It's a great first step or review. I was able to learn new skills while remembering some things from being a teacher. She uses sound research and is an expert!
