Raising happy, compassionate, and responsible children requires both love and limits. In Mindful Discipline, internationally recognized mindfulness expert Shauna Shapiro and pediatrician Chris White weave together ancient wisdom and modern science to provide new perspectives on parenting and discipline.

Grounded in mindfulness and neuroscience, this pioneering book redefines discipline and outlines the five essential elements necessary for children to thrive: unconditional love, space for children to be themselves, mentorship, healthy boundaries,and mis-takes that create learning and growth opportunities. In this book, you will also discover parenting practices such as setting limits with love, working with difficult emotions, and forgiveness and compassion meditations that place discipline within a context of mindfulness. This relationship-centered approach will restore your confidence as a parent and support your children in developing emotional intelligence, self-discipline, and resilience--qualities they need for living an authentic and meaningful life.

Insightful, thoughtful, compassionate book. I would recommend it for every parent. Mindfulness doesn't just calm you down and help you deal with stress--though it does do that! But the exercises in this book will penetrate your consciousness and become more and more a part of you and your personality and thought process the more you do them. I can't recommend this book enough.
