Authors Talk About It Review - 5 Stars
"Shame-Proof Parenting is not an omniscient, one-answer-solves-all book; rather, Samudio acknowledges all different sorts of family structures and parenting styles, and the fact that there is no truly "perfect" way to be a parent. Her approach is wise and supportive, simultaneously letting parents know that it's okay to not be perfect and that they're not alone in their daily stresses and worries. Her advice is vague enough to be relatable to anyone, while still feeling overwhelmingly personal; oftentimes, reading Shame-Proof Parenting felt like Samudio was speaking directly to me, like she understood. And, of course, she does.
Especially reading this as a parent, Shame-Proof Parenting was a refreshing and incredibly kind approach to a parenting book. Mercedes Samudio removes all guilt or blame from her narrative, and never pretends to be a magical genie who can solve every parent's problems with an on-trend, bottom-line solution. Her guidance can be summed up as, "Hey, I get it. Let's try this instead." That gentle support is a welcome embrace for struggling parents; in that regard, no matter what their struggles may be, Shame-Proof Parenting is a must-read for all parents. Ditch all the other so-called parenting books; this is the one that will really help you."
Reader's Favorite Review - 5 Stars
Shame-Proof Parenting by Mercedes Samudio is a brilliant parenting blueprint. The author uses her own experiences as a child and then shows how parents carry such defining moments throughout their lives, allowing them to reflect on their children and their parenting negatively. It was eye-opening and encouraging to see that many of my less-healthy parenting behaviors have an easily remedied cause. This book is an empowering read, perfect for the overwhelmed, under-appreciated, overwrought parent, who is at their wits' end. I would recommend this book to new parents, parents of children with behavioral issues, and the unique parent, as well as anyone that has a difficult child in their life." -Alyssa Elmore, Reader's Favorite Reviewer

Shame Proof Parenting is a thoughtful, heartfelt book. The people who find this book are going to feel so seen, heard and known. Samudio really models for parents what she wants for them—the recognition that we are all human, all imperfect and all on a journey—and that is so powerful.
The real gift of this book is the author’s own vulnerability in sharing her story, her shame, and her recovery from shame ruling her life. The further gift is her step-by-step plan for helping parents to move on from a place of shame to a point of embracing their humanity in all its imperfections. Over and over Samudio shows how when parents give themselves space to mess up and recover, they can extend that same understanding to their kids, allowing families to reconnect and move forward despite the conflicts and hurts that will inevitably come up.
Samudio acknowledges that kids come without manuals. Her solution? Write your own! And enjoy the journey while doing so because it is also a journey of your own self-discovery and healing your own childhood wounds. She advocates, “learning to love your own parenting style.” What an important idea: Every parent is an expert in her own style and that is the gift she brings her family.
