What if I told you that you can put an end to all of your parenting struggles?
That you can learn to parent without fear or anxiety?
That you can end conflict with your children?
That you can create close and connected relationships within your family?
…Would you accept this invitation to a revolution in parenting?
We all have the capacity to raise children who are highly resilient and emotionally connected. However, many of us are unable to because we are blinded by modern misconceptions of parenting and our own inner limitations. In The Awakened Family, I show you how you can cultivate a relationship with your children so they can thrive; moreover, you can be transformed to a state of greater calm, compassion and wisdom as well.
This book will take you on a journey to transcending your fears and illusions around parenting and help you become the parent you always wanted to be: fully present and conscious. It will arm you with practical, hands-on strategies and real-life examples from my experience as a parent and clinical psychologist that show the extraordinary power of being a conscious parent.
Everyone in your family is ready to be awakened.

"Parent, heal thyself" is the bold challenge in Tsabary's sequel to her bestselling The Conscious Parent. Tsabary teaches that even the most well-intentioned parental aspirations and expectations can stifle the development and expression of children's authentic selves. She posits that ongoing difficult behavior in children often comes from parents' immature reactions rooted in unresolved hurts, fears, and patterns from their own childhoods. Her solution takes aim at anxiety-producing cultural myths about parenting, replacing the need for control with mindful presence and self-understanding. Tsabary's calm, explanatory approach acknowledges that parents can have a hard time regulating their behavior when provoked. She has the rare ability to inspire parental reflectiveness about adult responsibilities without making the reader feel blamed, belittled, or overwhelmed. Realistic examples of everyday interactions demonstrate how family relationships can be moved to a place of partnership, empathy, and growth. Readers of Tsabary's first book will find this follow-up useful and encouraging, and those starting here will find everything they need without having to refer back. Tsabary's message is an antidote to recent trends such as for "helicopter parenting," teaching respect for children as people in their own right and urging parents to let them thrive.

Can’t recommend this book enough. It may not be a good fit for every parent, but for some with whom this book strikes a chord, it has the potential to be a major game-changer with respect to evolving the atmosphere in the home into a much more manageable and healthy one.
