The Gifts of Imperfect Parenting: Raising Children with Courage, Compassion and Connection is rated 5 out of 5 by 1.
We all know that perfect parenting does not exist; however, we still struggle with the social expectations that teach us that being imperfect is synonymous with being inadequate. These messages are powerful and we end up spending too much precious time and energy managing perception and creating carefully edited versions of families to show to the world.

Based on 12 years of pioneering research, Dr. Brené Brown off ers a new perspective of the subject of perfect parenting. She states, "It's actually our ability to embrace imperfection that will help us teach our children to have the courage to be authentic, the compassion to love themselves and others, and the sense of connection that gives true purpose and meaning to life."

Dr. Brown proposes that the greatest challenge of wholehearted parenting is being the adult that we want our children to grow up to be. The Gifts of Imperfect Parenting is a practical and hopeful program for raising children who know that they are worthy of love, belonging, and joy.

Drawing on her research on vulnerability, courage, worthiness, and shame, Dr. Brown invites listeners on a journey to transform the lives of parents and children alike as we explore how to cultivate wholeheartedness in our families.

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from For every parent (and teacher and coach...) Packed full of great stories that you can relate to. This audiobook has the power to transform your relationship not only with your child(ren) but also with yourself, your spouse, your parents.... I usually stay away from the "self-help" aisle, but I thoroughly enjoy Brene Brown. I don't feel like this book has me trying on a new parenting style, but helps more by reminding me of things I already know intrinsically but may not be in the habit of practicing.
