The Parent Gardener: Raising Children Who Blossom contains the fundamentals of how to be a nurturing parent. It weaves the teachings of the majority and minority culture (specifically the Navajo) to create an awareness of our physical, emotional and spiritual dimensions that contribute to health and wholeness. Elements of good parenting are identified and explained in a down-to-earth, culturally sensitive way. Fables and problem-solving tools illustrate important concepts related to nurturing. This book is useful for all parents and parents to be. Ideally, it is a teaching tool for small groups, such as high school classes, church groups, rehabilitation programs, dormitory parents and the like.
