Overview

Dr. Brené Brown's Ten Guideposts to Wholehearted Families

We all know that perfect parenting does not exist, yet we still struggle with the social expectations that teach us that being imperfect is synonymous with being inadequate. These messages are powerful and we end up spending precious time and energy managing perception and the carefully edited versions of the families we show to the world. On The Gifts of Imperfect Parenting, Dr. Brené Brown invites us on a journey to transform the lives of parents and children alike. Drawing on her twelve years of research on vulnerability, courage, worthiness, and shame, she presents ten guideposts to creating what she describes as "wholehearted" families where each of us can continually learn and grow as we reach our full potential, including:


  • Cultivating worthiness in families—the knowledge that we are each always worthy of love and belonging
  • Vulnerability—the key to true connection
  • Engaging in creativity and play as a family
  • Practicing gratitude and joy in the home
  • Respect and hard work in a culture of "fun, fast, and easy"

"It's actually our ability to embrace imperfection that will help us teach our children to have the courage to be authentic, the compassion to love themselves and others, and the sense of connection that gives true purpose and meaning to life," states Dr. Brown. The Gifts of Imperfect Parenting is a practical and hopeful program for raising children who know that they are worthy of love, belonging, and joy.
