Just when you thought youíve heard it allĖParenting from the Heart offers a new and different,
refreshing approach to parenting. This easy-to-understand, down-to-earth book moves beyond parenting theories
and techniques to get to the heart of parenting. If parents know how to look within their hearts to find the
answers they need, parenting techniques are not necessary. If parents know how to find a loving connection with
their children at most times, discipline and consequences are rarely necessary. All parents have it within them
to bring out the best in their children. Approaching parents in this way makes parenting a true pleasure instead
of the battle and chore it often becomes. Many so-called experts say that raising kids is the toughest job any of
us will ever do, but it does not have to be that way. It can be the most joyful thing any of us will ever do.
Parenting from the Heart is a must resource for anyone who cares about parenting and raising children.
I canít tell you how you have impacted my life. I have taught parenting courses for four years,
and when I get up in the morning I now think about treating my kids in a gentle, lighthearted spirit, and it works!
The rest just falls into place. The stress of providing care for eight kids and a husbandís Monday-Friday commute
takes its toll, but Iím learning to pay attention to my thinking and go back to calm and the love returns... Thank
you for writing this book. It is very dynamic and has provided me with a sense of freedom.

Jack Pransky offers practical wisdom grounded in intimate experiences with his own children... It is
refreshing to celebrate with Jack the innate goodness and potential for healthy living that lies within
