This is the kind of relationship I strive to have with my daughter, and any other children I might be blessed with. I cannot get enough of this book; The Conscious Parent by Dr. Shefali Tsabary. "Without our realizing, we so often endorse our children for their actions, rather than for just being. Our children need to grow up with the awareness that who they are is worthy of celebration. Their core must be unconditionally celebrated."
