The Parenting Map : Step-by-Step Solutions to Consciously Create the Ultimate Parent-Child Relationship
We are in the midst of a parenting crisis. Children today are feeling increasingly disconnected. Parents, too, feel this pain and are desperate to help their kids and themselves. Now, bestselling author, clinical psychologist, international speaker, and wisdom teacher Dr. Shefali offers the answers they need. The Parenting Map is a practical fail-safe, whole-family program designed to help both adults and children heal and thrive. In this timely and essential guide that combines her unique blend of clinical psychology and eastern mindfulness, Dr. Shefali breaks down this crucial issue affecting families:
The Problem: As humans, we are biologically hardwired to connect and need these bonds to grow and thrive. But parents cannot successfully reconnect with their kids until they overcome their own deeply ingrained fears, issues, and traumas which get in the way.
The Solution: We have the ability to break down our faulty belief systems and to accept our children for who they are-not who we want them to be. By letting go of the past and appreciating our children as unique individuals, we can reestablish our connections and give them the support they want and need.
The Application: Dr. Shefali introduces the 9-step method her clients have followed with remarkable results. Her method can be used to address key behavioral issues and milestones at every stage of childhood, from infancy through adolescence and are crucial for parents in their own development, too.
Most parenting advice is top down; conscious parenting recognizes not only the impact of adults on kids, but children's potential to spark a deep soul-searching transformation in their parents. With both generations learning together, the cycle of dysfunction, trauma, neglect, and abuse can be broken, allowing the child and parent to grow and flourish together.
Blending wisdom and proven actions, The Parenting Map is the essential guide parents today-and their children-need to heal and strengthen their bonds.
