The Review
The Seven Principles for parenting with soul put forth by the author are the Section Titles for the work. Falcone lists eight chapters under PRINCIPLE 1 CONNECT, two chapters comprise AWAKEN YOUR INTUITION, BECOME A CONSCIOUS CREATOR, LIVE IN INTEGRITY and TRANSFORM YOUR LIFE WITH GRATITUDE each are covered in one chapter each. CREATE ABUNDANCE is explained in two chapters and INFUSE YOUR LIFE WITH PEACE is defined in three. An Introduction, glossary, resources and information pertaining to the author round out this just under 300 page work.
I knew I would enjoy the read when looking at the inside book cover. These words not only piqued my interest but brought a smile to my lips: Buddha never Raised Kids, Jesus didn't drive carpool, and it's doubtful the Dalai Lama ever changed a dirty diaper at dawn. In her work Buddha Never Raised Kids Writer Falcone offers concrete suggestions to new and laboring parents of older kids for how to connect with self. Falcone suggests that it is important for parents to take time for themselves. She suggests writing/posting and following suggestions listing how to be a happy parent as well as offering fifty ways to calm the self. Falcone goes on to state that once connection with self is established it is time/possible to create the parenting vision. Chapter two is filled with suggestions for parents as they seek ways to improve parenting and gain peace in their lives.
I especially like the works offered at the beginning of Chapter 6: Move toward your child with love: how to connect with your child.

I bought Vickie Falcone's book "Buddha Never Raised Kids ..." as a treat for myself and now I want to buy it for all my friends who are, or will be, parents of young children. It is beautifully written, warm, inclusive, and funny. This is not a book about religion, but about parenting with love, patience, respect, joy, and soul. Vickie takes the wisdom of religious/spiritual leaders throughout the ages and applies their words and thoughts to parenting. She includes her own high and low points as a mother of two, as well as a few fun exercises that help you get in touch with what your needs and goals are as a person and a parent. Whether it was advice that helped me get to that place I have wanted to be as a mother, or the pat on the back of reading things that I already believe in or practice, this book has had a profound affect on me. I can't recommend it highly enough!

Buddha Never Raised Kids
The Review
I knew I would enjoy the read when looking at the inside book cover. These words not only piqued my interest but brought a smile to my lips: Buddha never Raised Kids, Jesus didn't drive carpool, and it's doubtful the Dalai Lama ever changed a dirty diaper at dawn. In her work Buddha Never Raised Kids Writer Falcone offers concrete suggestions to new and laboring parents of older kids for how to connect with self.

Falcone goes on to state that once connection with self is established it is time/possible to create the parenting vision.
I especially like the words offered at the beginning of Chapter 6: Move toward your child with love: how to connect with your child.
A quote by Pope John 23 gracing the heading of chapter 8 is the tenet I have long believed and used in my career as a teacher and as a parent: See everything, overlook a great deal, correct a little.
Actual case studies and comments gleaned from seminars and motivational groups held by writer Falcone on the pages of Buddha Never Raised Kids add interest to the various chapters. Reading about the struggles of real people are often something helpful for the rest of us who also struggle with a particular problem.
Buddha Never Raised Kids is not a heavy tome filled with `pie in the sky' type oughta work but probably don't with real people type work. It is a must have for the home library of those who seek to improve their own lives.
Enjoyed the read, happy to recommend.

Vickie Falcone's book helped me understand what I was already doing right and the specific behaviors that were getting in the way of closeness with my grandchildren. The sections on breathing and connecting were especially rich. I am raising a granddaughter now who had a number of meltdowns the first five months we were together. By setting my intention, staying present and breathing, I experienced constant miracles. We now have a comfortable, loving and close relationship. Thank you, Vickie!

This is by far the best parenting book I've ever read! Finally, a book that encompasses practical parenting with spiritual principles. As someone who has worked as a child development specialist, yet also has a strong spiritual practice, I often find it very difficult to find a good book that incorporates both practical, researched fundamentals of development and spiritual aspects of parenting. Vickie Falcone has finally done it. This book is sensible, straight forward, insightful and life altering. Each principle enhanced the quality of our family life considerably. This is the book I think many people have been waiting for! Thank goodness it has finally arrived!
