"Rebecca Eanes knows a secret about parenting: It isn't just about
raising children. Parenthood requires us to grow, too. Often,
parents know that they're over-reacting to their child's behavior
because of their own triggers, but they don't know where to begin
to heal those triggers. By sharing her experience, asking questions
that develop insight, and providing healing exercises, Eanes walks
parents through the process of recognizing their triggers,
excavating them, and rewriting their stories. She even includes
several chapters on how to communicate with your partner about
these issues, so you can work together better as a couple. This is
a terrific guide for any parent beginning the journey of

"In our always connected world of social media and Google searches there is a never-ending flow of new and better parenting information. It's easy to get lost in the sea of best practices. The focus is often on changing kids behavior or all the reasons you are ruining your kids. The problem is that so much of what we read seems to conflict and leaves us feeling powerless rather than truly supporting parents and families. Rebecca's new book "Positive Parenting" emphasizes that parenting is far more than simply making kids comply. It's about real lives, relationships, and people; It's about real moms', dads' and kids' stories and how to make those stories incredible. This book gives the reader timeless, foundational principles and practices that help to build the parent, the child and the family as a whole from the inside out."
--Andy Smithson, www.truparenting.net
"Positive Parenting" beautifully illustrates the choices that modern-day parents have to raise healthy and successful children through nurturing, empathetic relationships. Bolstered by research in neuroscience and human development, Eanes shows how parents must grow alongside their children, and how this parallel journey helps young people reach their full potential. This is a must-read book for all who care enough about their children to reflect deeply on themselves as parents.
