Raising Resilient and Compassionate Children
Marion Rose and Lael Stone
Raising Resilient and Compassionate Children is a book that considers how we can raise children who can move through life’s challenges in healthy ways, while being compassionate and considerate of others.
Historically parenting has focused on raising children who are ‘well behaved’, through the use of rewards and punishments, without understanding the true causes of children’s behaviour.
In their first authored collaboration, Marion Rose and Lael Stone share the compassion and wisdom they’ve acquired from a combined 40 years of experience working with families. Informed by an Aware Parenting lens, they provide a framework and methodology for parents to understand the root causes of the most common parenting challenges including sleep issues, aggression and anxiety.
They offer a truly empathic and modern approach to feelings, supporting parents to welcome children’s tears and rages rather than suppressing them. This trauma-informed approach can then be applied to all areas of parenting, including healing parents’ own childhood hurt and trauma. This book invites parents to change the way in which they perceive, understand and respond to children.
