I am pregnant with my first child and I was looking for a book that would inspire me to raise an 'awake' child, rather than make mistakes that were maybe made in my upbringing, or using my child just to reflect me. I loved this. I've not shared with many people that I've read this, as people are so cynical, but I found it full of common sense and inspiration. I was especially glad that the author is not suggesting that you should raise kids as wild, hippy, feral kids with no responsibilities! Instead, this book is about noticing when you're out of control yourself, and that children are not ever 'born bad'. I'm sure I will keep reading this all throughout my child's life.

I loved this book. The author talks about powerful, yet easy to understand principles and it has transformed my parenting forever.

The core idea behind this book (that your interactions with your children should be overshadowed by your own issues as little as possible) is a good one, and some of her points about dealing with the situation/child in front of you, rather than the one you wish you had, or fear you will have, are effectively made. But in general I think the book is very padded out and lacking in real depth. In particular, the examples are not effective at all in illustrating the ways that parent-child interactions can go well or badly. Sometimes they are blindingly obvious examples of negative parenting - something like "Simon wanted his son John to study law so he mocked and reviled his desire to go to art school". More often, they are just incredibly vague and read like summaries of the parent's therapy sessions which don't disclose anything about how one might respond more receptively to children in the moment. There isn't any connection made to other literature on this topic, unlike, for example, Aflie Cohn, who I think makes some similar points more effectively. Overall I was disappointed.

This will change your view of your children, just allowing in a few of the idea's presented has reduced conflict in our household. The style is a little heavy going, but mug your way through the repetitive and Americanized bits because the overall effect is worth it. No need for all those italics either Ms Tsabary, trust that your reader will understand!

I’m reviewing this book primarily from the perspective of being a mother of two young children and a clinical psychologist working with families. I am a strong advocate of mindful and respectful parenting in all its different shapes (positive/respectful/RIE/attachment/whole brain child). Listening to The Conscious Parent book (in audio format) was a very satisfying and validating experience for me as its content fits very well with how I parent and what I promote in my clinical work. The book was narrated, by the author, in a calm, powerful and engaging way.

However, what I enjoyed particularly was how well its content agrees with the RIE “educaring” approach of Magda Gerber/Janet Lansbury, the neurological/attachment perspective of Dan Siegel/Tina Bryson and the Inside Out parenting approach by Dan Siegel. Additionally, it offered a spiritual lens to what I know and practice and thus helped me to further expand the immense sense of purpose and opportunity that I see in my
parenting journey. I am immensely grateful for this transformational lens.

While I would highly recommend this book, both for parents and professionals, I also wanted to raise a few thoughts that repeatedly emerged throughout listening. I found it really helpful and interesting to hear of the clinical examples that Dr Shefali uses in the book, to offer a spiritual slant on what is also a psychological process. However, oftentimes I found that the examples given were quite extreme and difficult to relate to.

The Conscious Parent is indeed a must read for all parents. For me it gave an insight to a wider parent and child relationship than I previously thought. A book from chapter to chapter that has real merit in the vision for creating a life with your child, that will make it so special and rewarding throughout the child and parents growth. The book helped me to realise more about me in my growing childhood years of influence than many other reads. So a book that helps two spirits is in my estimation worthy of high acclaim and praise by myself. This following its new edition release and huge acceptance in so many countries again in 2014. Thank You Dr Shefali.

The book is generally very good, lots of interesting points, inspiring to be the best parent you can be for your child. At the same time the examples that the author gives are very simplistic (over simplistic) and the point that she is making is repeated to many times.
