  • Conscious Parenting: Using the Parental Awareness Threshold

    “Anybody who cares about the people who will shape our future should read this book!” —A. Scott Henderson, PhD, Professor of Education, Furman University

    Parenting in today’s society is complex. Dr. Saul knows that parenting requires instruction and constant tinkering as we learn what we did right and what we need to improve. Conscious Parenting: Using the Parental Awareness Threshold provides a basic framework, a map, for such a process. Using real-life vignettes from infancy through adolescence that are drawn from a lifetime of work with children and parents, Dr. Saul seeks to give parents the learned ability to understand their interactions with their children and to change their responses to maximize positive results and minimize negative results. Parents will find numerous examples and suggestions on ways to enhance those opportunities at all ages. Brief and right to the point, Conscious Parenting: Using the Parental Awareness Threshold can be referred to again and again, day in and day out.
