How much do I love this woman?! Had a blast lunching with the beautiful and inspiring Dr. Shefali Tsabary in my hometown of Evanston, Illinois, as she prepared to give a talk about her new book, "The Awakened Family: A Revolution in Parenting." Being in her presence calms and energizes me, all at once. Big things ahead for Dr. Shefali and 30Second Mom! But now, let's talk about her new book!
Most parents would love to put an end to parenting struggles, parent without fear, end conflicts and create wonderfully connected relationships within their family. Dr. Shefali knows this, and in her book, “The Awakened Family,” she guides parents to the path where they can realize and live those aspirations – if they choose to walk down it.
- Part One: A New Awakening – Dr. Shefali shows parents how to parent in a new way, how our culture sets parents up to fail and the invisible triggers of our reactivity.
- Part Two: Our Parenting Myths – Parenting is loaded with myths, and Dr. Shefali is not afraid to confront them all. Think parenting is about the child, parents need to be in control and a good parent is a loving one? Think again. Dr. Shefali delves into seven parenting myths and makes you stop and think about our perceptions of parenting.
- Part Three: Understanding Our Reactivity – Understanding how we react to our children – and what’s really behind how we react – can help parents transform fear into consciousness.
- Part Four: Parenting Skills – Now it’s time to transform our parenting skills, from expectations to engagement, mindless reaction to mindful presence, emotions to feelings, and battlefield to negotiation table. And that’s just a sliver of how Dr. Shefali helps parents change and look at parenting in a different light.
It’s time to start a revolution in parenting, and Dr. Shefali’s “The Awakened Family” is the perfect stepping stone! Learn more at TheAwakenedFamily.com and DrShefali.com. Read her 30Second Mom tips here!
