I have mentioned the book The Conscious Parent on here, and I always suggest it to other parents. Normally I am a fast reader, but with this one I am taking my time and taking notes. Like a lot of parenting methods and books, I believe knowledge is power and we as parents carry the responsibility to be the best we can be.
Last week it just so happen two of my favorites, Marie Forleo and Dr. Shefali, sat down for a great talk on what parents can do to raise conscious children.
Marie put it best:
Ever feel like you’re no match for your child’s meltdowns or conflicts in your personal relationships? In this video you’ll learn the best ways to practice conscious parenting and how staying centered despite outer chaos can actually be achieved.
Conscious parenting -- and being a conscious human being in all relationships -- takes inner work. This video will teach you some of the best ways to begin cultivating inner awareness and trusting the innate wisdom in yourself and your loved ones.
Dr. Shefali has a lot of good things to say, and even if you do not plan to read her books, here are some great quotes to simmer on.
