Parent-child relationships can feel (and be!) hard. That’s why today we welcome Dr. Shefali, acclaimed clinical psychologist and bestselling author, who specializes in the integration of Western psychology and Eastern philosophy. In her latest book, The Parenting Map, Dr. Shefali offers a profoundly practical and groundbreaking parenting solution that helps parents actualize their deepest desire for their children (Hint: The want for your children to be happy and healthy has more significance than you might think). 

The Almost 30 community lives with pure intentions, so why should parenting be any different? In this episode, K+L chat with Dr. Shefali about breaking generational patterns, empowering children and in the process, transforming your own life.  

This episode is truly for everyone, no matter if you currently identify as a parent, aspire to be one, or child. 

If your child did not finish all the pasta on the plate, that’s because she’s honoring her body. Don’t tell her: “Just two more bites. Eat it!” You’re telling her at that moment then to override her body. How will she know what she wants, if we keep overriding our children? – Dr. Shefali

We also talk about:
  • Conscious parenting + intentional connection
  • Over identifying with being a parent + martyrdom 
  • Breaking generational patterns
  • Identifying the ego in your approach
  • Rethinking how we choose to discipline
  • Looking at our own childhood wounds
