The relationship between parent and child is more reciprocal than you might think. Your child's well-being has a noticeable impact on your own well-being, which is why love-above all else-should fuel your parenting. When you strive to see life through the eyes of your child, you'll be empowered to try new parenting practices.

You must grow alongside your children-intellectually and emotionally, as well as spiritually. Greater involvement with your children will lead to an increased awareness of the world around you and inject new meaning into your life. You'll become more compassionate, exercise empathy more often, and feel fully present.

Grow Together: Parenting as a Path to Well-Being, Wisdom, and Joy is a manual for parents and professionals alike. Each chapter has been thoroughly researched and concisely written by Josette Luvmour, PhD, to provide helpful, data-driven advice. Everyone-from adoptive parents and extended family to therapists and physicians-will find useful information inside.

Luvmour is all for innovation and transformation in childcare. Contemporary parenting is on the cusp of a new paradigm, and this book will guide you there.
