BookWaking Up: A Parent's Guide to Mindful Awareness and Connection
by Raelynn Maloney, Ph.D.


Transform your day-to-day parenting into a positive and fulfilling experience for both you and your child. Dr. Maloney's new book "Waking Up: A Parent's Guide to Mindful Awareness and Connection" is dedicated to helping parents maintain healthy connections with their children through Self Awareness, Relationship Awareness, and Moment Awareness.

Using Awareness as a parenting tool, you can manage the daily pressures and challenges of parenting with ease--as well as attend to the more elusive issues of helping your child build a healthy sense of self and, therefore, cultivate healthy relationships. Imagine parenting without losing yourself in the drama, the debate, and the tug of war. Learn how to interact with presence, openness, and confidence. Practice demonstrating daily skills, habits, and mindsets that will positively influence your child for life.

 

In Waking Up you will discover how to:
          

  • cultivate and consistently use awareness as an effective parenting skill.

  • transform "problems" in the parent-child relationship by first transforming yourself.

  • stay connected to your child during disagreements, when giving consequences, and while setting limits.

  • actively prevent the passing-down of negative relationship patterns.

  • shift your child's mood, attitude, and behavior by focusing on the parent-child interaction instead of the child's misbehavior.

  • become aware of the messages your child is taking in from you--and avoid sending your child negative or mixed messages.

  • become grounded in the present with your child and, at the same time, raise a child who is also grounded in the present.

  • transform difficult situations and ordinary experiences into mindful, connecting moments.
