We interview Dr. Shefali Tsabary the author of the The Conscious Parent (with a forward written by the Dalai Lama) and her new book Out of Control  which questions why and how we discipline children.

Some of the issues we discuss with Dr. Shefali:
– What are the first steps we can take to become a more conscious parent?
– What prevents us from being the parent that we want to be?
– Why most discipline strategies don’t work. How parenting our children can help us heal our past wounds.
– How to release guilt when we recognize our parenting challenges are less about our children issues and more about our issues.
– Can our children be an instrument for our own personal growth?
– How do we release the power of natural consequences?
