Banyen's Description: 

Oprah called Dr. Shefali Tsabary's first book “the most profound book on parenting I've ever encountered,” making it a bestseller in 2014. Now, Dr. Shefali offers readers a radically transformative plan that shows parents how to raise children to be their unique, truest selves.

 Letting go of control over our children is probably the hardest spiritual task we face as parents.

Parents need to recognize their children for who they actually are, and in The Awakened Family, Tsabary challenges the modern myths of parenting that define how a child is "supposed to be." Instead of holding our children to society's impossible ideals, Shefali teaches us how to control our expectations, embrace the present moment, and let go of the anxiety surrounding how best to parent our children. Written in the style of her The Conscious Parent, The Awakened Family draws from Eastern philosophy as well as Western psychology to offer enlightened advice and a clear program for raising confident, conscious children who are true to themselves.

In an awakened family, parents are aware that every relationship in their family exists to help each person grow. Parents view their children as mirrors through which they are able to see how they themselves need to mature and develop. Instead of fixing what they see as faults in their children, these parents seek to work on themselves, raising their own levels of maturity and presence. The focus is always on the parent’s awareness rather than the child’s behavior. This is the core insight of the book.

“Tsabary’s invaluable book shows how the challenges of parenting can become a great opportunity for spiritual awakening. Becoming a fully conscious parent is the greatest gift you can give to your child.” —Eckhart Tolle, author, The Power of Now

“In this book, Dr. Shefali Tsabary describes the importance of compassion in simple, secular terms, discussing how we can learn to develop it from our relationship with our children.” —His Holiness the Dalai Lama
