Editorial Reviews

Review

“Shows parents how they can transform parenting into a spiritual practice.”
— Eckhart Tolle, author of The Power of Now

“Clear, wise, soulful, and poetic.”
— Alanis Morissette

“I trust Susan Stiffelman with my heart, my family, and my community because she understands that parenting is not just a job but a spiritual practice. Susan comes alongside parents both as an expert and as a guide, a counselor, a friend, a healer.”
— Glennon Doyle Melton, author of Carry On, Warrior and founder of Momastery.com

“An empathic tenderness runs through this wise and down-to-earth guide to parenting with greater awareness. You can feel the love that Susan Stiffelman has for the families she works with in her therapy practice and her confidence in all of us to grow into the challenges and gifts of being a parent.”
— Myla and Jon Kabat-Zinn, authors of Everyday Blessings: The Inner Work of Mindful Parenting

“With her mix of practical tools and personal stories, Susan Stiffelman shows how to create close, loving family relationships and captures just how transformational and fulfilling parenthood can be.”
— Arianna Huffington, author of Thrive

“This book brings new awareness about a parenting process that increases the health of our culture itself. Recommended to all parents and parents-to-be.”
— Harville Hendrix, PhD, and Helen LaKelly Hunt, PhD, authors of Giving the Love That Heals: A Guide for Parents

“This is exactly the advice and support you need as a parent! Seasoned, wise, and practical, Parenting with Presence helps parents take a deep breath and tend themselves and their kids with compassion, love, and mindfulness.”
— Jack Kornfield, author of A Path with Heart, and Trudy Goodman, PhD, founder of InsightLA

Parenting with Presence is a gentle but powerful reminder that our own awareness, our own calmness, and our ability to respond and not react to stressful situations are fundamental to raising healthy kids. . . . This is an important work.”
— Tim Ryan, US Representative from Ohio and author of A Mindful Nation

“Who knew that the child or teen crying in the next room is actually our spiritual teacher? Who would have thought that annoying outbursts and provocative behavior could lead to more conscious, spiritually tuned-in, effective, even enjoyable parenting? Susan Stiffelman’s groundbreaking, immensely readable guide teaches all we need to know about how to nurture our children — and ourselves — to become more conscious, compassionate, and, believe it or not, calmer human beings.”
— Kathy Eldon, founder and chairman of the Creative Visions Foundation

“I stole it from my mother and devoured it! A fantastic read that should be mandatory for all parents. I cannot wait for it to come out so I can hand it out to everyone I know.”
— Amy Eldon Turteltaub, cofounder of the Creative Visions Foundation and vice president of Creative Visions Productions

“One of the best parenting books I’ve seen in a long while. With clarity, warmth, and wisdom, Susan Stiffelman bridges the world of spiritual transformation with the down-to-earth realities of parenting. Parenting with Presence is full of insights that will set parents on a path of healing and joy. I highly recommend it!”
— Elisha Goldstein, PhD, author of Uncovering Happiness: Overcoming Depression with Mindfulness and Self-Compassion

“As a mother, I found myself powerfully moved by the insights and exercises in Parenting with Presence. Susan Stiffelman delicately explores what many parenting experts avoid — the deeper layers of fear, guilt, and shame that thwart our ability to be fully present for those aspects of parenting we find most challenging. A beautiful offering to us all.”
— Katherine Woodward Thomas, author of Conscious Uncoupling

“An enlightened guide to parenting for anyone wanting to raise caring, happy, resilient children while healing their own unfinished childhood issues, Parenting with Presence is filled with parental wisdom intelligently presented and richly woven with examples from real life. A gem of a book!”
— Marci Shimoff, author of Happy for No Reason

“In Parenting with Presence, renowned expert Susan Stiffelman offers a unique way to bring up our children that combines both wisdom and compassion. Thoroughly practical, the approaches she shares in this remarkable book could help us parents create a strong basis for a truly loving and compassionate connection with our children, while also bringing out the best from us — our presence, joy, understanding, and kindness.”
— Thupten Jinpa, principal English translator to the Dalai Lama and author of A Fearless Heart

“While reading Parenting with Presence, I kept saying to myself, ‘I wish my parents had read this book!’ Finally a book on parenting that speaks to all aspects of our ‘inner child’ and gives each of us the kind of guidance that not only educates but transforms, uplifts, and nurtures both child and parent. Bravo!”
— Janet Bray Attwood, New York Times bestselling author of The Passion Test: The Effortless Path to Discovering Your Life Purpose

"Stiffelman’s engaging work gives parents tools to navigate confidently in both calm and stormy family seas."
Publishers Weekly

Susan Stiffelman is a unique blend of licensed therapist, credentialed teacher, beloved auntie and down to earth mom. Her book, Parenting Without Power Struggles is based on her work with thousands of parents and children, from celebrities to everyday moms and pops.

In her book, Susan offers mainstream, rubber meets the road advice that has been thoroughly tested on kids of all ages and demographics. At the same time, her approach to raising kids falls into step with the understanding of people like Eckhart Tolle and Marianne Williamson who recognize that parenting is in its own way a spiritual journey.

She's an adventurer (she took her 15 year old son on a two and a half month trip to Uganda, Tanzania, Australia and New Zealand), a visionary (homeschooled him in his early years when it was considered rather "iffy") and is an outside-the-box thinker (taught herself Hindi as a teenager by calling people named "Singh" out of the phone book!) Diagnosed with the ADHD label, she manages to accomplish more in a week than many do in a month, while maintaining a regular meditation practice and spending serious amounts of time playing.

Susan divides her time between Malibu, California with her son (when he's home from college), her dog Rosie, and a full and grateful heart.
