Raising Resilient & Compassionate Children (Lael Stone & Marion Rose)


Are you a parent looking for ways to raise resilient and compassionate children who can face life's challenges with optimism? Raising Resilient and Compassionate Children can help. This innovative resource draws on the Aware Parenting approach, which focuses on understanding the root causes of common parenting issues, such as sleep deprivation, aggression, and anxiety. Through this book, you'll discover a genuinely empathic and updated approach to feelings that will equip parents to welcome all of their child's emotions — tears and rages included — without having to suppress or reduce them.

This trauma-informed method will provide you with the skills to apply it to all areas of parenting, from handling behaviour to helping your own regained sense of heritage or personal identity after having children. You'll be transported back to the foundation of what true nurturing looks like in the 21st century, so that you can equip your children with the resilience they need when faced with adversity both now and in later life.
