Brilliant – I can’t fault it!

I think the focus of your course is brilliant as it took me years at university and doing college courses to gain some of the information you have managed to compact into these e-books. Conscious parenting is very much a step in the right direction for people wanting to be more aware of their relationship with all people (including themselves). It is an extremely thorough, well thought out and planned course. I actually can’t fault it – well done!

One of the most useful skills a parent can learn; reflective listening is a mixture of skills which includes silence and good attention. Book 7 also introduces paraphrasing, reflecting feelings and reflecting hidden meanings.
We train children to think clearly whilst at the same time teaching them not to express their feelings. However, with children, the ‘surface’ problem is rarely the same as the underlying one.

Reflective listening helps you check with the speaker to make sure you’ve really heard and understood what they meant. It also gives them a feeling of safety in being understood and allows them to continue speaking to explore the problem further.

People in the counselling professions are taught to look beneath what is called the ‘presenting problem’ and reflective listening allows the speaker to open up and trust that their disclosures will not be judged in anyway. Book 7 is the first of two books which teaches you to become an expert listener and is extremely useful, not just with your children but with friends and family too.
