How can we raise children who can move through life’s challenges in healthy ways, while being compassionate and considerate of others?

Historically parenting has focused on raising children who are ‘well behaved’, through the use of rewards and punishments, without understanding the true causes of children’s behaviour.

In their first authored collaboration, Marion Rose and Lael Stone share the compassion and wisdom they’ve acquired from a combined 40 years of experience working with families. Informed by an Aware Parenting lens, they provide a framework and methodology for parents to understand the root causes of the most common parenting challenges including sleep issues, aggression and anxiety.

They offer a truly empathic and modern approach to feelings, supporting parents to welcome children’s tears and rages rather than suppressing them. This trauma-informed approach can then be applied to all areas of parenting, including healing parents’ own childhood hurt and trauma. This book invites parents to change the way in which they perceive, understand and respond to children.

Praise for Raising Resilient and Compassionate Children

"I highly recommend Raising Resilient and Compassionate Children. The authors present all the important information about the Aware Parenting approach in a single, very readable, book. They explain how to offer children empathy, unconditional love, and full acceptance of their emotions. In addition, they clearly describe the underlying reasons for behavior problems and suggest many alternatives to punishments and rewards.

"To supplement the theory, the book includes rich examples illustrating typical scenarios which parents might encounter with their children (some of wich are real-life experiences with the authors' own children). These examples and anecdotes provide parents with practical tools to cope successfully with challenging situations, and they also help to explain children's behavior.

"I was especially touched by the deep compassion for parents, which shines through on every page. The authors fully understand why it's sometimes hard for parents to respond patiently and lovingly to their children. In the final section called "reparenting ourselves," they offer helpful exercises for parents to explore their own childhood and heal from their own early wounds." ─Aletha Solter, Ph.D., founder of Aware Parenting
