Instead of being merely the receiver of the parents' psychological and spiritual legacy, children function as ushers of the parents' development. Parents unwittingly pass on an inheritance of psychological pain and emotional shallowness. To handle the behavior that results, traditional books on parenting abound with clever techniques for control and quick fixes for dysfunction. In Dr. Shefali Tsabary's conscious approach to parenting, however, children serve as mirrors of their parents' forgotten self. Those willing to look in the mirror have an opportunity to establish a relationship with their own inner state of wholeness. Once they find their way back to their essence, parents enter into communion with their children, shifting away from the traditional parent-to-child "know it all" approach and more towards a mutual parent-with-child relationship. The pillars of the parental ego crumble as the parents awaken to the ability of their children to transport them into a state of presence.

Feels like I just left a conscious parenting retreat. Though I do have a few points of contention.

There was so very much in The Conscious Parent: Transforming Ourselves, Empowering Our Children by Shefali Tsabary that resonated with me. It is not a how-to book of parenting strategies but a philosophical guide for walking the parenting journey with mindfullness. I put down the book feeling like my mind just left a conscious parenting retreat, punctuated with moments of, “Ah, yes,” and feeling spiritually rejuvenated. I definitely recommend this book for parents in the advanced class.

Good info but repetitive

This book was good info in regards to being aware of your own presence and letting your kids be what they are however it seemed it was just repeating all the info throughout the book. At times the author makes you feel like if something is happening to your child or when they act up its your own fault. I continued to read it and got past that and then just felt like I was re-reading the same info. She basically does not want you to have any sort of expectations from your kid otherwise they are going to rebel in different ways.

Dr.Shefali message may be difficult to digest for most parents. For years we have been shamed, blamed, and brainwashed to believe our children are ours to manipulate, mold and shape when in fact the Conscious Parent teaches us that our children are spiritual beings and here to TEACH US. We are both growing together side by side.

If you want to become an enlightened, loving and open parent this is such a help and aide.

Wow, this book is indescribable. You’ll just have to read it. It reveals so many areas where we have raised our children in an inferior manner. No guilt trips, but definitely insight into how we can raise and support our children, raising children to raise conscious, aware and enlightened people. Such a positive alternative to the typical broken methods of our educational system and harmful parenting that’s plagued the US for over a hundred years.

90% repetitive blahblah, 10% very good insights

The author repeats the same ideas over and over again albeit from different angles. The book is not written in an easy to read way and with all the repetitive rhetorical statements, I just want to fast forward yet I can’t because I am afraid to miss the 10% golden nuggets.

Amazing – single best book on parenting

If I could only read one book on parenting, and family life, this would be it. It rocked my world. I have a 3 year old who was aggressively pushing my buttons and causing me to erupt almost daily with a temper I never knew I had. This book helped not only see this as a tender opportunity, I actually changed… I was able to let go of and dissolve many triggers, and i continue to make progress every day. My feelings toward my 3 year old son changed from him being “spirited” (but really, feeling he was often kind of bad and often so infuriating) to seeing him as genuinely my most treasured teacher and feeling so much more closeness and connection. Thank God I found this book now, and not 10 years from now. I’m so incredibly grateful.

Great book with a lot of useful information and reminders for both parents. My partner and I listened to the audio book during a road trip and I also have a copy on my Kindle to read whenever Id like to refresh. I work with kids as well so I enjoy many offering by this author and like to suggest this book to families expecting or with kids in transitional phases, which is often.

I never write reviews, but in this case I have no choice. I have a PhD in clinical psychology, and I think this is one of the most important books ever written. EVER. Anyone who has a child, wants to have a child, is having a child, or WAS a child should read this. If Dr. Tsabary’s message could get through to any of them, the world would be a better place.
