What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher


"Mary Hartzell has helped me immeasurably in my quest to be the best possible parent I can be (I often fail). Her research and hands-on practice both as a teacher, and as the director of First Presbyterian Nursery School in Santa Monica, have enabled her to write and create some of the most invaluable resources for parents. Her book, Parenting from the Inside Out, is a must-have for any parent...I gave a friend of mine a copy of Parenting... and she said, "This book is changing my life. I like my kids again."

This review is premature - I am still reading the book. BUT, I can tell you already that it is going to be one of the most helpful, biggest eye-opening, hardest-to-take books on parenting I've read. Unlike many of the books on the shelves, this book delves into the reasons we parent the way we do, challenges us to face those reasons, dares us to address them, and then applauds us as we move beyond our past and parent bravely into our future. It is not too Freudian in its approach (as much as you'd like to blame it all on your Mother), but reveals how our history becomes our future IF we don't break that cycle. It is a bit of a dry read. Don't make the mistake of reading it in bed at night - it has cured my insomnia. It goes much better with a cup of coffee in the morning. I am eagerly anticipating the opportunity to "graduate" from this book a better parent, and a better me! You will be glad you read this book.

I am a MSW student and had to read this for a course. I am a mother of two amazing children yet find myself feeling short or reacting in ways to them that later I wonder why I responded the way that I did. This book helped me to realize the Why. After reading it and having a better understanding of myself, I am more able to apply my past and childhood to those reactions and have a conscious awareness of my own actions and emotions. It helped turn my implicit memories into explicit (autobiographical) memories that I can work on as an adult, and as a parent. Those types of memory are explained in the book. In order to read this book and be receptive to its message it should be approached by the reader with the state of mind that allows pain, happiness, and hard truths about our own parents to surface and be dealt with in a non-judgmental way. (Our parents had their own childhood, too). If the reader is able to do this then the book will be a very useful tool. If the reader isn't able to do this and has unresolved issues stemming from childhood, having a support system or therapist might be beneficial.
