Offers guidance for parents on establishing a relationship with their inner wholeness through their children.

Perseus Publishing
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.

A must read for all parents of children, including (especially maybe) teenagers; Dr. Shefali has taught me an easy and calm approach for parenting; I can't recommend it enough, especially if you're struggling.

Also watch Dr. Shevali's videos online, including her interview with Oprah.
