Books Info:

Parenting in the Present Moment free pdf This generation of parents is overwhelmed with parenting advice. Carla Naumburg sets out to remind them that they have everything they need to raise healthy, happy children. Mindful parenting is about paying attention to what is going on with your children and yourself, without judging, freaking out, or thinking everyone should be doing something differently. In "Parenting in the Present Moment," Naumburg shares what truly matters in parenting -- connecting with children in ways that are meaningful to them and you, staying grounded amid the craziness of parenting, and staying present for whatever life throws your way. With reassuring, compassionate storytelling, she weaves the most current theories -- about healthy relationships, compassionate self-care, and mindfulness -- throughout vignettes of her own chaotic childhood and parental struggles. She shows how mindfulness creates a solid foundation for any style of parenting, regardless of your cultural background, socioeconomic status, or family structure. She also introduces the STAY model for tough times: Stop whatever it is you're doing- Take a breath- Attune to your thoughts and those of your child- and Yield. Parenting is an ongoing journey that constantly challenges every parent. "Parenting in the Present Moment" will help each family find its own way.
