Publisher's Summary

"Parents...you will be wowed and awed by [Dr. Shefali]." (Oprah Winfrey)

New from the New York Times best-selling author of The Conscious Parent comes a radically transformative plan that shows parents how to raise children to be their best, truest selves.

What if...?

What if I told you that you can put an end to all of your parenting struggles?
That you can learn to parent without fear or anxiety?
That you can end conflict with your children?
That you can create close and connected relationships within your family?
Would you accept this invitation to a revolution in parenting?

We all have the capacity to raise children who are highly resilient and emotionally connected. However, many of us are unable to because we are blinded by modern misconceptions of parenting and our own inner limitations. In The Awakened Family, I show you how you can cultivate a relationship with your children so they can thrive; moreover, you can be transformed to a state of greater calm, compassion, and wisdom as well.

This book will take you on a journey to transcending your fears and illusions around parenting and help you become the parent you always wanted to be: fully present and conscious. It will arm you with practical, hands-on strategies and real-life examples from my experience as a parent and clinical psychologist that show the extraordinary power of being a conscious parent.

Everyone in your family is ready to be awakened.

Will you take this journey with me?

- Shefali

LIFE CHANGING BOOK!!!

Would you listen to The Awakened Family again? Why?

As an educator and parent of 2, I have read every book under the sun both personally and professionally and there isn't a better book on the planet for transforming the relationship with your child. It completely transformed my connection with my children and reduced the stress level in our house dramatically. Im forever thankful for Dr. Shefali's work and will pay it forward for life!

Let's change the cycle of disconnection

I love having to rethink an idea I thought was my own. This book gives you access to a paradigm shift. I'm doing it because I am aware of what I am doing.

Amazing book!

The best book in parenting ever! A must read for everyone! Help me to have a better relationship with myself, raise my inner child in order to be a better parent for my daughters. Very grateful that I have found her! The world would be a much better place if all the people would read and apply her work.

Fluffy and screams "new age".

Any additional comments?

I am a huge Eckhart Tolle fan, and reread his books regularly. I am very interested in mindfulness topics. I am a new father. I thought this book would resonate with me, but I just found it way too full of new-age babble, and not actual science. The fact the author is a doctor made me think the book would be more substantive and researched, and less preachy speculation. To give you a sense -- each chapter ends with a "poem". Perhaps that says enough right there. (By the way, I love poems, but do not think this book is the place for them.)

Transformed my concepts of patenting

This book is a simple yet powerful approach to shifting everything I thought was the " right way " to parent. Through this loving and conscious method I have already seen changes in myself and therefore how I patent in this new radical zen way! Thank you!

Every parent should read. SO helpful!

The author's ideas just make sense - and the ones I've tried out so far have all worked. It helped me wrap my mind and heart around new ways to connect with my children.

Condescending author/reader

While I appreciate the topic and find that it is well covered, this book makes its case by way of example ONLY. I would have liked to hear more case study and other scientific rationale for the conclusions. One major drawback of using storied analogies from the author's practice is that her clients come off as sounding like morons and her as a self righteous preacher. Again, I wholly take to conscious parenting but readers may want to look for a more conscientious guide.

Disappointing for an evidenced based review

if you want to read a book about parenting with well founded research and data, look elsewhere. I was annoyed by the first sentence, and it didn't get better. The author just uses analogy and discussions of "true self" to describe topics that actually have strong research based evidentiary support.

If the scientific method and talk of research makes you uncomfortable, then you may like this book. I personally felt it to boarder on insulting my intelligence.
