AMAZING!  Apr 17, 2008
Wow a truly amazing book! I am an avid reader and this is actually my very first review! After reading the book I felt I needed express my gratitude for such a wonderful book that will forever change my life. I checked this book out at the library and am now here to buy it! Tons of amazing information and an easy read for those who are busy! This book deserves 10 stars! :o)
FANTASTIC BOOK!  Feb 1, 2008
I have never written a review for this site before, but feel compelled to do so now because this book is so wonderful. It is the best of its genre that I have read (and I read a LOT of parenting books). There are many wonderful suggestions on how to make your children's lives more calm and peaceful. It is perfect for all ages and all religions. The author is also fantastic- I emailed her for an outline for a study group based on the book, and she responded immediately! I always get my books from the library, but I refer to this so frequently (and can see myself doing so for years to come) that I am buying it!
An owesome book  Dec 14, 2007
This book, is a awesome book, a guidence to get get calm and compassionate children, I know that's the title, but it offers great ideas, easy to read, you just can't stop reading.
Two Thumbs Up From The Magazine To Inspire Conscious Parenting & Empowered Kids  Apr 1, 2007
I picked up the book yesterday and couldn't put it down. As publisher of a magazine to inspire conscious parenting and empowered kids, this book reminded me of the importance of helping kids settle down, breath, and connect to the world (and people) around them. It's full practical steps to apply in everyday life but what keeps the pages turning are the personal stories she relates. Some ideas we've heard over and over, such as using breath, movement or touch to soothe, but they serve as great reminders to put them back into our lives. Others are innovative, fun, and simple, such as giving your toddler two nickels to hold on to (one for each hand) to distract them while making a quick stop. Without giving too much away, the book offered a reminder that the way things are isn't necesarily the way they have to be. It IS possible for four 10-year-old boys to be kind, compassionate and gentle with a 4-year-old boy who interrupts their game. Empathy is essential for two humans to connect and understand one another. Empathy is what is lacking within families and in world politics. We started our magazine because we know that it is children who determine the future of the world. With conscious parenting and the ideas presented in this book, our kids have a hope for a more peaceful personal life and world situation.
A childrens book that speaks from the heart  Mar 20, 2007
With practical activities for children, this is more than just a book to be read. The stories and anecdotes are based are true experiences, and give insight to the author's own experiences with the many children she has helped to develop. Bringing kindness and calmness back into or children's life's is truly needed in today's highly stressed world.
