Description

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.

Such a great parenting resource!

This book has given me countless tools to use in my parenting journey. I only wish I had found it sooner. I hope every parent takes the time to read/listen to Dr. Shefali’s work!

Thank you!

A concept that an emotionally intelligent parent will love

Starting out, I wondered if this book was going to be a little too foofoo.
I have two daughters already at University and two more in grade school.
The Author kept me interested until I understood and began to buy-in. I started to recognize the situations I failed at and the things I was doing right, and then learned how to focus on myself and my reactions.
I love the ideas of this book and realized that the concepts are right on point and how I can use them to raise my last two girls.
Wish I would have read it 20 years earlier.

Parenting must read!

I wish I would have read this book before I had children. This book brought up a lot of emotion for ne. I had to face my own childhood pain and really get honest with myself. I recommend this book if you are ready to take responsibility and face your own demons. .

The better parent is from within

An enlightening audiobook that taught me to reflect on my own 'output' into the world before jumping into a thoughtless reaction that is fuelled by ego and not empathy.

Highly recommend this to parent(s) and families having a hard time connecting with their chid/children.

#Audible1 The conscious parent

This book and Dr Shefali’s view have changed my parenting and my life. I feel relieved and much calmer having adopted some of her perspectives. Highly recommend, especially for anyone with anxiety or parent-worry!

New view on parenting

This book changed the way I relate to my children. I no longer get angry quickly or react quickly. I learned that when I feel anger or disappointment or embarrassment or sad at my children. I’m really re feeling feelings from my past. Feelings that I don’t realize are still inside. Feelings that I still need to work through. Being conscious is being awake to those feelings and realized that they have nothing to do with your children or their behaviour or who they are but everything to do with you. What you have lived through what you are trying to hide from. It’s amazing to wake up to this and know that’s where those feelings are coming from.

Transformative

loved it! The book helped guide me to see the errors I am making as a parent, and opened me up to literally being more conscious.

Great book!

This is an awesome book. Dr. Shefali offers many tools on how to navigate some difficult situations with your kids. This book really opened my eyes to parenting in a different way. It also made me reflect on how I was parented and why I get triggered because of the way I was raised. Insightful read.

Heart Centered and effective peaceful parenting

I enjoyed the whole hearted approch of this book. Compassionate towards parent and child perspective alike it really offered respectful and practical approches for improved mental health and wellbeing of both children/ teens and the parent. Discipline focus of safety and respect for self and others was bang on. Assists in a reflective approch to how the parent ego shapes a childs and how to raise concious self contained children and teens. Excellent read for any parent wanting to have the most peaceful, respectful, and connected relationship with their children possible.

Heals both the parent and the child!

We're on our last 2 of 9 children with 22 grandchildren so far and I haven't heard this much parenting truth ever. Thank you!

Cual es tu contribucion buena o mala en tus hijos.

Una abierta de ojos a la gran influencia que tenemos en el comportamiento y formacion de nuestros hijos y de donde bienen nuestras limitaciones como Papas. Algunas de las teorias que la Dra.Tsabary presenta fueron sorpresivamente refrescantes para mi. Altamente recomendable para Papas nuevos.

Good message but with flaws.

I listened to it because a good friend of mine recommend it. I however struggled to finish it. the information is good, but her reading of her own work was a put off (and I almost never complain but instead adapt to the performer). Other two aspects I didn't like was her intense use of generalizations and that her work is directed to the upper middle class up, which is specially sad, since her message is very good for growing at a personal level and as a parent, and all segments of the population would benefit from it.

Best parenting book out there

I loved every minute of this book. It's one I'll refer back to over the next several years as my children grow. I loved her approach of the there's-no-quick-fix-parenting out there. Good kids begin with a conscious parent.

Life changing book

This book totally changed not only the way I look at parenting my 2 year old son, but at all of my relationships. I'm so grateful I found this when he was young. I thought I was already a conscious parent but I had lots of opportunities to change. I love that Dr. Tsabary reads the book - her voice is so soothing.

Disappointing

What would have made The Conscious Parent better?

This book has lots of great ideas and goals to achieve as a parent but no real advice regarding what to do when faced with a teenager who is directly antagonistic or recurrently challenging a boundary that must exist. I have 3 good kids but I bought this book because I want to be the best parent possible. This book wasn't a useful tool.

What could Dr. Shefali Tsabary have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

See above. I stopped listening about half way through the book and may have missed the more concrete material. If that's the case, it needs to be included earlier. You win a reader over by building on small successes and bringing them along.

What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

Her accent was pleasing. Her voice sounded friendly and approachable, and consistent with her message/philosophy.

What character would you cut from The Conscious Parent?

NA

Any additional comments?

I wholeheartedly agree with the author's message. I believe strongly that I don't get to "choose" my kids, only guide and support them. This book affirmed my belief but didn't help me get there. I don't know that it would convince a more authoritarian parent of the primacy of autonomy either.

POWERFUL!!!!

What I got out of the book is i love how she explains the importance of generational mind sets that were passed on from our parents and how important it is to stop it before it continues or worsens with our children. BEAUTIFUL book!!!

So helpful with parenting kids of all ages.

First of all, I love that the author is the narrator. This book has great tools for accepting and communicating with children of all ages. My girls are 8 and 12 years. My relationship with them has changed in a positive way. I have learned new tools to be present.
I will be listening to this again.

A collection of fuzzy warm stories

It's well written and narrated. The subject matter is a collection of personal experiences and case files. It does a reasonable job of identifying scenario types but not of suggesting solutions. The obvious case matter based on ethnic issues and especially what seems to be the middle class makes this book somewhat skewed. There are a few affirmations for my assessments as a parent and healthworker but really nothing concrete I could use.
