Hands-on Widsom for the next generation. Belly Song Press, 2013
In this cutting-edge book, therapist, parents and visionary Dr. Dawn Menken introduces a fresh approach to the joy and wonder of the world of parenting. Going beyond the conventional ‘how to’ book, Raising Parents, Raising Kids is the ultimate guide to nurturing the emotional, spiritual, and social lives of children, helping parents create a more meaningful relationship with their children by supporting their deepest nature.
Loaded with practical tips, inspiring examples, and her own intimate stories, Menken uses the principles of process-oriented psychology to help parents, caretakers, and educators navigate the complex waters of conflict, power dynamics, diversity, and other social challenges, and offers ground-breaking insights and techniques to tackle the burgeoning problem of bullying.
Menken goes on to address typical challenges of the parenting relationship, parents own personal growth, and the call to parent not only our children, but also the planet, and ultimately ourselves.
