Raising our children, raising ourselves
Transforming parent-child relationships from reaction and struggle to freedom, power and joy.
Any parent will tell you that this job teaches you more about yourself than you expected. We parent from our own experiences and sometimes it can be a challenge to move past our own childhoods for the benefit of our children’s. This is an inspiring book which uses real-life stories to demonstrate how at even the youngest age, choosing trust in your children’s feelings over manipulation, leads to deeper connections and ultimately a more confident child. Using stories and exercises to heal parents and address their need to be able to love unconditionally, this book will help those looking to give up the scolding, threatening and punishing techniques.
As a parent, you are your child's haven and protection, the one whom she trusts and whose advocacy she relies on till she reaches full size. For her own and for your emotional well-being , make yourself a safe ally for your child. She needs to experience that you cherish her feelings, choices, and thoughts."
