The Awakened Family: A Revolution in Parenting
Parents naturally want what is the best for their children — so why do so many “tried and true” parenting approaches seem to backfire and tensions between parents and their children seem to only be increasing? In The Awakened Family: A Revolution in Parenting, clinical psychologist Shefali Tsabary, Ph.D., author of the New York Times bestseller The Conscious Parent, presents a transformative new approach to parenting, one that focuses not on how we can change our kids, but on how we can change ourselves so that we can become our children’s biggest supporters and resources.
Oprah Winfrey called Dr. Tsabary’s first book “the most profound book on parenting I’ve ever encountered.” In this new book, Dr. Tsabary shows us that connecting with our children, showing them that our love is unconditional and not tied to external success, praise, or validation, allows them to develop their self-worth and resilience. This book lays out a clear path to more effective, rewarding parenting, and gives parents the tools to tune into their own needs and challenges in order to better accommodate their children’s needs.
