Summary, etc.:
"As a parent, you strive to model kindness, compassion, and patience when interacting with your children. But no parent is perfect, and in difficult or stressful moments, you may react to your kids in ways that don't exactly fit your ideal model of parenting--for example, yelling. You aren't alone. Parental reactions are often deeply ingrained, and you likely learned them from your parents. So how can you break this cycle and be the kind of parent you want to be? packed with practical mindfulness skills, Raising Good Humans can help you stay grounded--even during the worst kid meltdowns--and respond constructively and compassionately. You'll also discover the building blocks for creating a relationship with you child based on love and mutual respect. When children experience a parent reacting with kindness and patience, they learn to act with kindness. With this essential guide, you'll see how changing your own 'autopilot reactions' can create a lasting positive impact--not just for your kids, but for generations to come." --back cover.
