Publisher's Summary

“A wise and fresh approach to mindful parenting.” (Tara Brach, author of Radical Acceptance)

A kinder, more compassionate world starts with kind and compassionate kids. In Raising Good Humans, you’ll find powerful and practical strategies to break free from “reactive parenting” habits and raise kind, cooperative, and confident kids.

Whether you’re running late for school, trying to get your child to eat their vegetables, or dealing with an epic meltdown in the checkout line at a grocery store - being a parent is hard work! And, as parents, many of us react in times of stress without thinking - often by yelling. But what if, instead of always reacting on autopilot, you could respond thoughtfully in those moments, keep your cool, and get from A to B on time and in one piece?

With this book, you’ll find powerful mindfulness skills for calming your own stress response when difficult emotions arise. You’ll also discover strategies for cultivating respectful communication, effective conflict resolution, and reflective listening. In the process, you’ll learn to examine your own unhelpful patterns and ingrained reactions that reflect the generational habits shaped by your parents, so you can break the cycle and respond to your children in more skillful ways.

When children experience a parent reacting with kindness and patience, they learn to act with kindness as well - thereby altering generational patterns for a kinder, more compassionate future. With this essential guide, you’ll see how changing your own “autopilot reactions” can create a lasting positive impact, not just for your kids, but for generations to come.

An essential, must-listen for all parents - now more than ever.

Applicable summary of several key parenting books

I recognized the advice from other parenting books I had heard and read. I like how practically this book is laid out and I think I'll pick up a hard copy when I come across one. I liked the author's writing prompts. I did not like the narration. While the narrator's voice is pleasant, her tone ups and downs make it hard to know when sentences end. It made difficult for me to follow the flow unless my attention was 100% on listening.

Great Book About Parenting and Teaching Kindness!

I loved this book! It gave me some perspective on the importance of connecting with my young children and being mindful about how I react to them. I realized I no longer want to be an authority figure, but show them love and empathy while teaching boundaries. I highly recommend this book.

Good Aggregate of Multiple Frameworks

I found this book to be very helpful. Like other reviews, if you have already read multiple parenting books, you can skip this one. If you haven't read any this book is perfect.
