Episode 54: Conscious Parenting with Dr. Shefali

I had the amazing opportunity to interview Dr. Shefali, an international speaker, clinical psychologist, and author of seven books, about her new podcast "Parenting & You with Dr. Shefali."

This episode was truly a pinch-me moment as I had the incredible opportunity to interview Dr. Shefali. Dr. Shefali is an international speaker, clinical psychologist, and author of seven books. She is the mind behind her two landmark books The Conscious Parent and The Awakened Family. She specializes in the integration of Western psychology and Eastern philosophy to give parents and families the best of both worlds. She is launching a brand new podcast called “Parenting & You with Dr. Shefali.” She coaches families live on each episode so what you are hearing is therapy in action. I learned so much during our conversation and I’m excited to share it with all of you.

Here’s what we talk about with Dr. Shefali:

  • The reasons behind choosing to talk with real parents in real time on her new podcast rather than speaking with experts.
  • How to navigate the internal need to find all the “right answers” in parenting scenarios and shift to see how parents’ internal struggles are reflected onto their children.
  • Tools for parents who struggle to regulate their own emotions in stressful parenting situations. 
  • Recognizing what your personal triggers are in relation to your past experiences to create a more relaxed parenting experience. 
  • Why some parenting advice or strategies might not immediately work for every child or family.
  • Dr. Shefali’s perspective on how to respond and work with young children who have tantrums in the moment and how to stay regulated. 
  • How to gain more cooperation from your children by building connections and partnerships with them.
