Banyen's Description: 

From the bestselling author of The Artist’s Way comes the most highly requested addition to Julia Cameron’s canon of work on the creative process. The Artists Way for Parents provides an ongoing spiritual toolkit that parents can enter—and re-enter—at any pace and at any point in their children’s early years.

For decades, people have been asking me to write this book. The Artist’s Way focuses on a creative recovery. We re-cover the ground we have traveled in our past. The Artist’s Way for Parents focuses on creative cultivation, where we consciously—and playfully—put our children on a healthy creative path toward the future.

According to Cameron: “Every child is creative—and every parent is creative. Your child requires joy, and exercising creativity, both independently and together, makes for a happy and fulfilling family life.” Focusing on parents and their children from birth to age twelve, The Artist’s Way for Parents builds on the foundation of The Artist’s Way and shares it with the next generation. Using spiritual concepts and practical tools, this book will assist parents as they guide their children to greater creativity.

Parenting is a great adventure. Awakening your child’s sense of curiosity and wonder helps you reawaken your own. Reawakening your own sense of curiosity and wonder helps you awaken your child’s.

Each chapter has a focus on cultivating a particular quality: Safety, Curiosity, Connection, Limits, Self-Expression, Inventiveness, Conscious Inflow, Focus, Discovery, Humility, Independence, and Faith.

“Three Basic Tools” which Julia Cameron recommends are:

  • Morning Pages—three pages of longhand daily writing that the parent does alone
  • Creative Expedition—a once-weekly dual adventure that the parent and child plan, look forward to, and take together
  • Highlights—a daily bedtime ritual in which the parent and child each share their favorite moment from the day.
