"This is a must-read for every family that yearns to create peace and harmony.”
—Shefali Tsabary, Ph.D., New York Times bestselling author of The Conscious Parent

Tired of yelling and nagging? True family connection is possible—and this essential guide shows us how.

Popular parenting blogger Rebecca Eanes believes that parenting advice should be about more than just getting kids to behave. Struggling to maintain a meaningful connection with her two little ones and frustrated by the lack of emotionally aware books for parents, she began to share her own insights with readers online. Her following has grown into a thriving community—hundreds of thousands strong. 

In this eagerly anticipated guide, Eanes shares her hard-won wisdom for overcoming limiting thought patterns and recognizing emotional triggers, as well as advice for connecting with kids at each stage, from infancy to adolescence. This heartfelt, insightful advice comes not from an "expert," but from a learning, evolving parent. Filled with practical, solution-oriented advice, this is an empowering guide for any parent who longs to end the yelling, power struggles, and downward spiral of acting out, punishment, resentment, and shame—and instead foster an emotional connection that helps kids learn self-discipline, feel confident, and create lasting, loving bonds.
