I’m a practical pediatrician. Theory is wonderful, but ultimately it comes down to the choices you make in the moment. So how do we change our patterns and do something differently? Stop the yell? Or even the swat on the tush?
This book really provides a lesson in mindfulness as a parent, WITHOUT THE GUILT. You feel as you read, that the authors are right there with you in the daily struggles we all go through as parents. And that each moment is an opportunity, to stop, regroup and be mindful of how we would like to proceed.
Most powerfully, the message here is that you know what to do already. Parents today are bombarded with endless information that creates an atmosphere of anxiety and self-doubt. I was looking for directives when I initially picked up this book but the reality is there is not one perfect right solution for every family, and you have to feel your way to the right solution for your family. There will also be challenges presented in reading this book- how do you become more mindful of your own behavior? Be prepared to work first on yourself. As I have seen time and again, when we change ourselves, we change the spectrum of responses we see in our children.
Provides an intuitive and supportive counterpoint to the extremes of authoritarian 1-2-3 parenting vs. attachment gone too permissive parenting.
Highly recommended for the toddler through teen years.
