Thank you Swamiji for each and every chapter og this book. Right from the concept of Hygge to how to connect with children rather than succumbing to the worst tendency of OLD...i.e.obsessive lecturing disorder....this is a guidebook for all parents like me who are struggling like me with thr role of being a worth parent...especially to a teenager. Thanks for the consolation that it should not be taken for granted that a parent should be ar fault when a child says it so. All parents grab the book fast.
This book is going to definitely help all the parents and people planning to give birth to a new life. Also the book is very helpful for others , to help nurture the child within them. Insights on how human mind works and how to tame it when the situations are rather calm so one can gracefully persevere during adversities. How important is resilience for anybody to live the life gracefully . Author has beautifully explained many researchs with corresponding anecdotes and personal life experience so the lesson is well assimilated. I think , a book on parenting is very thoughtful , because so much is expected out of kids even after they become adults therefore this book brings a lot of insights. The author very pleasantly breaks the notion that is instilled in the mind of children that parents are always right. Having said that , the author also explains the responsibilities a child has and how he can live a harmonious life with parents. I highly recommend the book to each and everyone.
Also I'd like to mention my heartfelt gratitude to the author for such amazing insights and perspectives.
Any book from Swami is pure wisdom to progress in this life. This book is a gem for parents where they will realise how they can bring up their kids without being too pushy and with all the good intentions to be a better human being. Love and freedom and complete acceptance is must for any human and the base for kid's natural development. This book gives perspective on how child looks differently at a situation as perceived by the parents. Overall must read.
Only Swami could write such a marvelous piece. A research based book which gives insight on how problem lies with parents and not with kids. we hit and shout at kids coz thats what we we are made of,frustration. Swamiji takes us through a mind-blowing thesis with practical solution on how we can be better parents. when i analyse situation of most parents i realize that they are not well versed with a habit of reading. if parents read all books of swamiji i am sure they will end of creating amazing humans out of their kids and will be able to transform their own lives. i am reading most lines twice because the information is so very true. i have read many books on parenting but nothing like this. this must be read and can be considered as Bhaghwat Gita of parenting in order to transform lives of kids and parents. due to 1000 years of ruling we have becoming fearful humans and that's what we are teaching our kids,to be emotional fools. we need to change as parents and this book can do that. gift swamiji's books as bday,anniversary gift instead and spread wisdom coz only right research based wisdom can transform our country as a whole. pls pick up the book and read as i am a parent of a 15 yr old teenager and very well understand the consequence of shouting at a child ,let alone hitting them. Jaganmata let every wise parent pick this book so that they can create Good Humans and not reckless citizens.
This book is a must read for everyone. Be it nice and successful parents, single parents, teenagers or future parents, this book makes sense for everyone. Swamiji has very strongly spoken against hitting a child under any circumstance. Whenever I see any parent scolding or hitting his or her child, I feel a deep urge to beg him/her to read this marvelous book. I feel, that the ten pearls of wisdom given by Swamiji on mindful parenting in the Chapter “Things that Matter” need to be visited time and again by all the parents to make a difference in the lives of their children.
This book provides profound insights in to mindful parenting. Many of the spiritual lessons in this book can be related to various discourses Swamiji has given in his YouTube videos and blogs.
I've enjoyed reading all of Swamiji’ s books and benefited from them. This book is also easy to read and grasp. The clarity of thought is brilliant and the spiritual insights in this book are invaluable to any parent.
One thing which struck me was that we believe some of the things we do for our children is good and justified. After reading this book, its clear that there are much better ways of imbibing goodness and instilling confidence in our children. You will enjoy the humor and various examples Swamiji has given from his experience of meeting thousands of people and parents over the years. Swamiji has also quoted several researches to substantiate his teachings.
He has applied all his spiritual wisdom in this book to help us become better parents. After reading, you will find yourself grabbing more copies to gift to your family and friends.
if swamiji raised me from childhood I will be a genius by now. No problem, now I have swamiji- I am a genius in progress! His book overflows with clarity and wisdom. Such clarity comes from mindfulness and keen observation. I wish if my parents read this book when I was a kid, things will be very different by now. Its a must read book for every parent. parents are the first inspiration to any kid. Remember- Parenting is a lifelong commitment. Please go through this wisdom filled book, be prepared and give your kids a wonderful support.
This should be everyone’s first book to be honest. The book unlocks that treasure which is fundamental and elusive to majority of mankind. Most of us have not the slightest clue and awareness of raising another human being and is the hardest responsibility a human can take up with hardly any worthy manual, a guide or an instructions book.
Until now, that is. This book covers every single aspect needed to become an amazing parent. This is that exclusive guide for which every parent has always been craving, praying. Every kid is a promise, proves the author. Every parent can bring the best out of that promise. The how, when, where, what, is clearly answered in the book. What more do we need?
This is nothing but a gift to the world. The only source of knowledge one needs to be an amazing parent IMO. This book is irreplaceable and the only one you need in this category.
I swear, if you miss reading this book, you will lose out on lots of life changing wisdom. This book has profound content for everyone. The author has revealed some precious points that are so important for the youth to know and realise and work on, to lead a fulfilling life. And for those points you would have to dig through hundreds of books just to get a rough idea ! How lucky are we for this book ?!
Immense gratitude to the author for each and every page, for His intense research and analysis and efforts. You should just pick this up without batting an eyelid. You will be surprised and moved at the knowledge you’ll find. You will without a doubt be a changed person once you’ve completed this book.
