    Alexandra H. Solomon, PhD, faculty, School of Education and Social Policy, Northwestern University; Licensed Clinical Psychologist; author of Loving Bravely and Taking Sexy Back

  • Zen Parenting takes parents on a journey of self-reflection, but also gives practical tools for how to use that reflection to enhance your parenting.

    – Mercedes Samudio, LCSW, author of Shame-Proof Parenting

  • Drawing from her own experiences, Cathy shows us a path to support and nurture our children by understanding ourselves and re-envisioning parenting as a practice, not a destination.

    –Devorah Heitner, PhD author of Screenwise: Helping Kids Thrive and Survive in Their Digital World and founder of Raising Digital Natives

  • Zen Parenting gives parents what we crave most: a reprieve from our near-constant angst and uncertainty. This fresh take on ancient wisdom is so chock-full of fascinating research, I found myself pausing every few pages to text friends a new statistic or data point.

    - Michelle Icard, author of Fourteen Talks by Age Fourteen
