Parenting offers an exceptional opportunity for inner spiritual growth and personal transformation. This potential has been unappreciated in both the parenting and spiritual communities - until now! 

In Transformative Parenting: The Empathic, Empowering Approach to Optimal Parenting and Personal Growth, esteemed psychiatrist Edward V. Haas M.D. has woven together threads of knowledge drawn from his considerable experience in the realms of psychology, medicine, spirituality, and martial arts. The resulting tapestry suggests an integrated way of being, one that combines the knowledge and power of adulthood with the wisdom, openness and joy of childhood.

Transformative Parenting® encompasses not only the nurturing and teaching aspects of parenting, but also charts a course through the previously unexplored process of uncovering our hidden hang-ups and misconceptions about the world, through our interactions with our child. 

Through a careful, step-by-step explanation of how human beings learn, Dr. Haas shows us how and why we all have false, limiting beliefs that cause us see the world and ourselves incorrectly. Misconceptions that keep us from fully realizing our potential and experiencing the present as a place of wonder, discovery and opportunity. He then shows us how our children can help us uncover those false beliefs, how we can correct them, and how we can avoid limiting our children by inadvertently passing those beliefs on to them. 

The result is greater self-awareness, understanding, empowerment, and empathy in ourselves; and the development of compassion, confidence, and happiness in our child. 

Additionally, understanding the theory and following the approach laid out in Transformative Parenting, will ensure that you and your child have a relationship that is secure, based on mutual respect, understanding, and love, is fully enriching for both of you, and is free from the stress and conflict inherent in other parenting methods. 

You owe it to yourself, and your child, to read this book carefully. Do it now!

About the author

Author Edward V. Haas, M.D. became a doctor late in life. In his varied past, he worked as a dishwasher, emergency room attendant, stockbroker, financial analyst, computer consultant, HIV/AIDS prevention outreach worker, and as an early childhood service coordinator for developmentally delayed children. He decided to become a doctor in his late 30's, fulfilling a lifelong dream. His medical training and experience included extended work in pathology, family practice medicine, and psychiatry. He has also trained in Jungian psychoanalysis. Always a "seeker", his spiritual studies have taken him to India and Nepal, and his martial arts training to China. 

Catalyzed by the birth of his daughter, Transformative Parenting can be seen as a distillation of the knowledge he gained from these disparate experiences. Writing it allowed him to discover the meaning and purpose of his life: To spread awareness of the unique power and importance of children as catalysts for self-discovery, renewal, and rebirth.

The ultimate parenting book about getting your child to read.

'It’s a book that lives in that space between education in school and education at home. A thousand times better than those books of worksheets telling you “How to pass Sats” that sit on spinners in newsagents,' Michael Rosen, children's author and former children's laureate.

'If a child reads for pleasure it is the single biggest indicator of their future success - much more than parents' educational background or social success.'

Would you like your child to read for pleasure or read more than they do? In this easy-to-use and accessible guide, Alison David, Consumer Insight Director at Egmont Publishing, gives you the tools you need to help your child love reading. In the era of Snapchat and Instagram, fostering a love of reading and regular reading habits has never been harder for parents. This book is filled with expert advice about how to turn reading in your home from yet another chore into a fun experience that will bring parent and child closer together.

Getting your child engaged with reading will increase their confidence, encourage language development and improve their life chances.

This book contains:

• Strategies for each age range, from baby to young adult

• Easy-to-follow steps to carve out time for a reading routine

• Ideas and inspiration for what and how to read

An essential addition to the parenting bookshelf.

'This book isn’t just for families that have children who don’t embrace reading with enthusiasm and love, but can help established reading families too. ' Sally, Space on the Bookshelf.

Alison David works as a consumer research expert at Egmont UK, the publisher of Winnie-the-Pooh, Mr Men and many other much-loved children’s books. Through her extensive research, and as a parent herself, Alison has a real insight into the challenges facing reading.

#1 New York Times Bestseller

In this generation-defining self-help guide, a superstar blogger cuts through the crap to show us how to stop trying to be "positive" all the time so that we can truly become better, happier people.

For decades, we’ve been told that positive thinking is the key to a happy, rich life. "F**k positivity," Mark Manson says. "Let’s be honest, shit is f**ked and we have to live with it." In his wildly popular Internet blog, Manson doesn’t sugarcoat or equivocate. He tells it like it is—a dose of raw, refreshing, honest truth that is sorely lacking today. The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F**k is his antidote to the coddling, let’s-all-feel-good mindset that has infected American society and spoiled a generation, rewarding them with gold medals just for showing up.

Manson makes the argument, backed both by academic research and well-timed poop jokes, that improving our lives hinges not on our ability to turn lemons into lemonade, but on learning to stomach lemons better. Human beings are flawed and limited—"not everybody can be extraordinary, there are winners and losers in society, and some of it is not fair or your fault." Manson advises us to get to know our limitations and accept them. Once we embrace our fears, faults, and uncertainties, once we stop running and avoiding and start confronting painful truths, we can begin to find the courage, perseverance, honesty, responsibility, curiosity, and forgiveness we seek.

There are only so many things we can give a f**k about so we need to figure out which ones really matter, Manson makes clear. While money is nice, caring about what you do with your life is better, because true wealth is about experience. A much-needed grab-you-by-the-shoulders-and-look-you-in-the-eye moment of real-talk, filled with entertaining stories and profane, ruthless humor, The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F**k is a refreshing slap for a generation to help them lead contented, grounded lives.

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • The authors of No-Drama Discipline and The Yes Brain explain the new science of how a child’s brain is wired and how it matures in this pioneering, practical book.
“Simple, smart, and effective solutions to your child’s struggles.”—Harvey Karp, M.D.
In this pioneering, practical book, Daniel J. Siegel, neuropsychiatrist and author of the bestselling Mindsight, and parenting expert Tina Payne Bryson offer a revolutionary approach to child rearing with twelve key strategies that foster healthy brain development, leading to calmer, happier children. The authors explain—and make accessible—the new science of how a child’s brain is wired and how it matures. The “upstairs brain,” which makes decisions and balances emotions, is under construction until the mid-twenties. And especially in young children, the right brain and its emotions tend to rule over the logic of the left brain. No wonder kids throw tantrums, fight, or sulk in silence. By applying these discoveries to everyday parenting, you can turn any outburst, argument, or fear into a chance to integrate your child’s brain and foster vital growth.            
Complete with age-appropriate strategies for dealing with day-to-day struggles and illustrations that will help you explain these concepts to your child, The Whole-Brain Child shows you how to cultivate healthy emotional and intellectual development so that your children can lead balanced, meaningful, and connected lives.
