Come back and tell us how you’ve applied these gentle parenting principles at home and remember to review it on Amazon!

“Whispers Through Time” is now available and we’re excited to promote it. Author L. R. Knost focuses on the importance of communication in parenting. While she acknowledges the challenges we face as parents, she also gently reminds us that the connection we have with them when we first meet their beautiful newborn eyes is the same connection we hope to have with them when they’re teens and grown adults – and she explains how communication is the key to maintaining that amazing connection.

Knost asks us to consider our children’s behaviors as attempts to connect and communicate with us, rather than actions to drive us crazy. Knost offers practical approaches to 

  • Temper tantrums
  • Whining
  • Tattling
  • Chatterboxes, and
  • The “I dunno” of adolescence
This approach to communicating with children empowers children and parents alike while maintaining the parent-child connection through gentle, respectful parenting practices.
