about

Recent scientific research indicates a strong sense of connection between parents and children teaches children how to regulate emotions, master social skills, and develop a healthy sense of identity-essentially how to grow up. Unfortunately, many accepted parenting practices disrupt connection rather than fostering it, which may lead to lasting behavioral and emotional issues in children. According to Dr. Vanessa Lapointe, author of the bestselling Discipline Without Damage, nurturing connection should be the focus of all parenting efforts. But, along the way, many new parents may find themselves working through unsettled issues from their own childhoods. In Parenting Right From the Start, Dr. Lapointe shows parents how mindful, conscious parenting can work to nourish both child and parent.

Through the twin lenses of attachment parenting and the most up-to-date child development research, Dr. Lapointe walks parents through the battlegrounds where problems are most likely to arise for children-sleeping, feeding, toilet training, aggression, sibling rivalry-and she provides appropriate solutions designed to promote connection and growth. Rooted in compassion and understanding, Parenting Right From the Start shows parents how building a firm, caring presence in the early years is one that a child can lean into for a lifetime.

Dr. Vanessa Lapointe is the author of the bestselling Discipline Without Damage. A registered psychologist, she is also the founder of The Wishing Star Lapointe Developmental Clinic. She has supported families and children for more than fifteen years and is a sought-after lecturer. She lives in Vancouver, Canada, with her two sons.
