The book Mindful Discipline wasn’t quite what I expected. I thought it would be about advice and tips for disciplining your children. Instead, this parenting book focused a lot on educating parents what discipline and mindfulness are.
The first half of the book was very educational. Instead of how to discipline children, this book focused on how parents should act when disciplining, and making sure you as the parent, are disciplining from a mindful place.
Mindful discipline is an integrative approach, that embraces discipline as one dimension of a healthy, wise, and loving relationship.Mindful Discipline | Shauna Shapiro and Chris White
The book featured many guided meditations you can preform as a parent to make sure you are aware and in the present moment with your children.
These are the six areas the book suggested parents focus on to help develop a self disciplined and emotional mature adult. Each chapter discusses how each of these nourish and help grow the brain.
- Unconditional Love
- Healthy Boundaries
