The Conscious Parent

A good little read for caregivers that are already curious or practicing mindfulness or reflective practice. This book challenges parents to think deeply about children and parenting. Overall Tsabardy maintains focus on the parent’s role and development knowing that the only person one can control is themselves. Though the author challenges the reader to reflect deeply on some hard truths she stays in a fairly neutral space and works diligently to try to avoid adding to the mommy-guilt (and daddy-guilt) culture. Wouldn’t be first on our lists but for those with a specific interest in mindfulness and reflection it offers a great lens to continue your practice.
