Becoming a better person automatically makes you a better parent
In television and in books, parenting is so often described as a chore or a burden. Children are seen not as the treasures they are, but as things that need to be handled.
The truth is that parenting is a calling as much as any professional career is, and like any calling, it will put you on a spiritual path towards growth and happiness. Good parenting creates good people, and Dr. Blessing offers you a step-by-step guide to realizing the truth potential that arises when you care for a child.
"An uniquely measured approach to parenting not seen in the average book.” – Mervin Low, MD
As a type A person. I had "just in case" plans for every scenario in life. A health scare was not enough of a reminder to de-stress until I learned how to be in the now by observing my kid.
I can learn from even a child if I am willing to be teachable and it is a hell of a lot easier to teach by example.
Lose your inhibitions and be child-like once in a while. I have done that a few times in public to the dismay of my child, who then states "OMG, i don't know this crazy lady"
Dr Blessing believes that love comes first in all things, and this is one of the core tenets that she has set out to share with the world. The more connected you are, the healthier you will be both physically and emotionally. Love has the power to transform an ordinary event into something magical. The love of a child is almost alchemy; it has the power to change something as basic as a hug to something magical. She believes that parenting makes you more, not less, and that through better parenting, a whole new world can open up for you.
"Dr. Blessing doesn’t dole out advice on how to get your child to clean up his or her room. Instead, she takes an out-of-the box view on how to connect with your child through practicing gratitude and by staying in the “now” of your kids. It is a must read that should be on the book shelf of first time and long time parents alike.”
