The Gentle Parent

I am honored to have the opportunity to tell you about L. R. Knost’s new book The Gentle Parent: Positive, Practical, Effective Discipline. Her previous two books, Two-Thousand Kisses A Day and Whispers Through Time introduced us to the foundations of gentle parenting and invited us to step into our children’s shoes – the better we understand their behavior the more effectively we can respond to them. Together those two books form the foundation for her newest book, The Gentle Parent: Positive, Practical, Effective Discipline (Don’t worry, you can read this book without reading the previous two, but I highly recommend reading all three!).

The Gentle Parent offers parents specific tools on how to work with children in order to create a peaceful, happy home. Whether you’re struggling with common behavior issues or more challenging behaviors, The Gentle Parent will help you figure out what to do. So if you’re struggling with connecting with your child, figuring out how to respond and guide your children in gentle ways, and/or really just don’t know how to take the next step on your gentle parent journey, L.R. Knost’s The Gentle Parent will serve to light the way.

As a child advocate, parent educator, and licensed mental health counselor I absolutely love how the information in these books is easily backed up by both research and personal/professional experience…punishment doesn’t work and connection is the key. When we connect with our children and guide them as they learn about the world, they develop critical social and life skills that will serve them in ways that simply following orders cannot.

 I could easily quote the entire book, but then you wouldn’t buy the book and this wouldn’t be much of a “review.” So instead I’m simply going to offer you a quote that resonated with me as a mother and child advocate. And then… A GIVEAWAY!

In gentle discipline, the focus is on growing an ability and desire within our children to regulate their own emotions and behavior. The ability comes with time, maturity, guidance and consistent modeling on our part. The desire comes from the atmosphere of cooperation, understanding, and trust that you are building day by day, night by night, gentle response by gentle response.

In celebration of L.R. Knost’s new book we’re giving away
Two-Thousand Kisses A Day
and Whispers Through Time.
