Publisher's Summary

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.

Enjoyable and enlightening.

Really enjoyed listening to this book. The authors voice is so soothing and the tone of the book is unpatronizing and empowering. Certainly an eye opener with a few very relatable situations. Wish I had a book like this at the start of my parenting journey. It has made me think more before I react to a situation, asking myself why I feel the need to say/do/feel the way I do. I have already seen improvements in my own family life. Highly recommended book.

Love it!

This book is great as it’s supported my idea of letting my children grow up to be who their meant to be without me dumping my emotional baggage onto them.

I’m going to start listening to it again!

Useful points

The author makes useful points about raising children. Rebuilding our own sense of self so our children can benefit from us being clearer and more in touch with our genuine self so that they can, in turn, have a better chance than we did growing up with unconscious parents.

Brilliant and so enlightening!

This book does only define what conscious parenting is all about but as well provide guidance and example of what conscious parent does. This isn’t just parenting book, it’s a self-transforming books for adults! Just superb! Thank you for sharing your wisdom.

Every parent should read this book to learn about themselves and their children. Would recommend it to counsellors or any professions working with children and teenagers.

Tough at first but well worth reading, loved it.

Takes a bit of thinking about in the early chapters but we'll worth sticking at it. Wonderful ideas on putting conscious parenting into practice, I've really enjoyed and learned from this book.

A transforming book, amazing

Possibly the most enlightening and meaningful book that I have ever read / listened to. Read this before all other tactical parenting book.. It's not about quick fixes or band aids.. It goes to the core of who we are and why we act the way that we do - challenging us to find our own authenticity and presence both as people and parents. Beautifully narrated by the author.

Enjoyable & enlightening

If you are open to non traditional parenting theories then this is a great book. Helps you see children’s frustration and your frustrations with them in a totally new light. The first part of the book lays all the foundations and theories which come together in the latter part of the book. This was my first Audible book which was recommended to me. Lovely that the author is the narrator.

Must read for parents

A great insight into how your lack emotional awareness impacts your children's development.

Have you ever wondered why your kids behave they way they do, it's to do with you, good strategies and read life stories that give the book substance.

The audio is smooth and well read.

Rewind.

Little bit hard to listen to with the narrator's voice.
I went back to relisten.
Digest.
There were some thought provoking moments and times when I felt assured I was doing a good job as a parent.
I appreciate the opportunities that glimmer like gold, those memories that are loving and warm with my son.
Make each moment count with your child and treat them like they have everything they need already..respect.
