Dr. Phelan breaks down the complex task of parenting into three straightforward steps:

1. Helping your children learn how to control their emotions and refrain from negative behavior, including tantrums, whining, and sibling rivalry
2. Encouraging good behavior in your children and providing positive feedback
3. Strengthening your relationships with your children to reinforce the natural parent-child bond

You'll find tools to use in virtually every situation, as well as real-life stories from parents who have successfully navigated common parenting challenges such as reluctance to do chores, talking back, and refusing to go to bed or getting up in the middle of the night. For years, millions of parents from all over the world have used the award-winning 1-2-3 Magic program to help their children develop emotional intelligence, raise healthier, happier families, and put the fun back into parenting.

Along with other highly-respected parenting classics such as How to Talk So Kids Will Listen & Listen So Kids Will Talk, Parenting with Love and Logic, The 5 Love Languages of Children, No Drama Discipline, and The Whole Brain Child, 1-2-3 Magic is an essential tool for parents hoping to connect more deeply with their children.

    Awakened Family

    $17.00
    FINALIST FOR THE BOOKS FOR A BETTER LIFE AWARD - NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

    "Parents . . . you will be wowed and awed by [Dr. Shefali]." --Oprah Winfrey

    As seen on Oprah's SuperSoul Sunday,

    a radically transformative plan that shows parents how to raise children to be their best, truest selves, from the New York Times bestselling author of The Conscious Parent.


    What if...?

    What if I told you that you can put an end to all of your parenting struggles?

    That you can learn to parent without fear or anxiety?

    That you can end conflict with your children?

    That you can create close and connected relationships within your family?

    ...Would you accept this invitation to a revolution in parenting?

    We all have the capacity to raise children who are highly resilient and emotionally connected. However, many of us are unable to because we are blinded by modern misconceptions of parenting and our own inner limitations. In The Awakened Family, I show you how you can cultivate a relationship with your children so they can thrive; moreover, you can be transformed to a state of greater calm, compassion and wisdom as well.

    This book will take you on a journey to transcending your fears and illusions around parenting and help you become the parent you always wanted to be: fully present and conscious. It will arm you with practical, hands-on strategies and real-life examples from my experience as a parent and clinical psychologist that show the extraordinary power of being a conscious parent.

    Everyone in your family is ready to be awakened.

    Will you take this journey with me?

    Baby-Led Weaning Family Cookbook

    product image
    $19.95

    Yes, your baby can join in at family mealtimes--right from the start!

    Gill Rapley and Tracey Murkett are the creators of baby-led weaning (BLW), a commonsense way to introduce your baby to solid foods. There's no need to struggle with purees and spoon-feeding! Instead, Baby can explore the same foods you enjoy--how they feel, smell, and taste; how to grasp them and chew them--all at his or her own pace.

    The Baby-Led Weaning Family Cookbook includes 99 all-new recipes, many suited for families of 4 or more. Plus, Rapley and Murkett review all the benefits of BLW:

  • It's convenient: The whole family eats the same meal--together. No one puts Baby in the corner!
  • It helps Baby learn: BLW builds motor skills, coordination, and confidence.
  • It promotes lifelong health: By teaching Baby to love a variety of foods and to gauge fullness, BLW helps prevent picky eating, and overeating, later on!

    Diaper Dude

    $15.00
    Dude, you're a dad now!

    Picking up where From Dude to Dad left off, author and founder of the popular Diaper Dude parenting brand Chris Pegula dives into the first two years of parenting and furthers his deeply held belief that you don't have to lose yourself when you become a father.

    Once again written in Pegula's everyman voice and filled with humorous takes on fatherhood from the front lines, the book is an easy-to-read resource for new dads, combining hard-won lessons learned, pitfalls to avoid, and practical advice from a dude who hasn't lost his identity (or his sanity).

    Filled with useful information, hilarious stories of dad madness, a little psychology and science, and engaging sidebars, Diaper Dude covers everything from bonding, babyproofing, and when you'll have sex again to toddlerhood, tantrums, and tag-teaming with your partner to cover all the bases while staying (somewhat) sane.

    Dirt Is Good: The Advantage of Germs for Your Child's Developing Immune System

    $25.99

    From two of the world's top scientists and one of the world's top science writers (all parents), Dirt Is Good is a q&a-based guide to everything you need to know about kids & germs.

    "Is it OK for my child to eat dirt?"

    That's just one of the many questions authors Jack Gilbert and Rob Knight are bombarded with every week from parents all over the world. They've heard everything from "My two-year-old gets constant ear infections. Should I give her antibiotics? Or probiotics?" to "I heard that my son's asthma was caused by a lack of microbial exposure. Is this true, and if so what can I do about it now?"

    Google these questions, and you'll be overwhelmed with answers. The internet is rife with speculation and misinformation about the risks and benefits of what most parents think of as simply germs, but which scientists now call the microbiome: the combined activity of all the tiny organisms inside our bodies and the surrounding environment that have an enormous impact on our health and well-being. Who better to turn to for answers than Drs. Gilbert and Knight, two of the top scientists leading the investigation into the microbiome--an investigation that is producing fascinating discoveries and bringing answers to parents who want to do the best for their young children. Dirt Is Good is a comprehensive, authoritative, accessible guide you've been searching for.
