How To Be A More Conscious Parent!

Today’s episode is a real eye-opener. Especially if you’re a parent, hope to someday be a parent or — you have parents. Honestly, I believe this show is a must watch for us all.

Because no matter what stage of life you’re at, I can’t imagine you wouldn’t want a more loving and connected relationship with your family.

After all, any iota of “success” (however you define that word) can be empty and meaningless without people you love to share it with.

The other reason I think you’ll love this episode is the refreshing level of honesty and transparency of my guest, Dr. Shefali Tsabary, author of the NY Times bestseller The Conscious Parent.

She offers some delightfully contrarian ideas about parenting, and she’s completely candid about how challenging this path can be — even for her. (Which her daughter is all too quick to point out  )

Finally, this interview highlights a skill that I believe is the key to greater happiness and fulfillment for us all. The ability to tune in (and listen to) our own inner voice.

Now Dr. Shefali and I would love to hear from you. It’s a two part challenge today:

  1. What’s something that triggers you? Whether its something that sparks in relationship to your child, spouse, work or something else your life that just really seems to push your buttons.
  2. If you could step outside of that triggered reaction for a moment and observe it (as neutrally as possible), what does it call forth in you to look at, become more aware of, or perhaps to consider another perspective about?

I’d love to hear about it in the comments below. And do share as much detail as you can, with as much (self) compassion as you can muster.

Because tens of thousands of souls visit our site to learn, explore and get inspired. Your perspective may be exactly what someone else needs to hear to open up to a greater sense of themselves, and the world.

Important: please share your thoughts and ideas directly in the comments. Links to other posts, videos, etc. will be deleted as they come across as spammy.

If you found this episode helpful, please pass it along to your closest colleagues, clients and friends — anyone you think could use a little extra support as they work to bring their dreams to life!

Thanks so much for making this one of the most inspiring, fun and supportive places online.

With so much love and appreciation.
