New book: "The Art of Blissful Parenting," by Sharon Ballantine

New book by Sharon Ballantine, founder of the the Ballantine Parenting Institute™

There is so much violence and pain that can be avoided by teaching children what it really means to feel and then decide how to act, through teaching them to listen to their own Internal Guidance.

Children are bullied and bully every day, many without any understanding of how to manage their emotions and from an early age lack the ability to manage life changing situations. Statisics are everywhere stating how many of these children become violent offenders early on. What if parents learned the tools to teach children how to navigate a strong sense of self; a strong 'Internal Guidance System'? It would certainly lead to parenting with more ease and less anxiety.

Every new parent is worried about what that navigation entails. Every parent that is not so new to the-most-important-job-in-the-world is concerned about how to (for example) help teens be independent strong people that make decisions for their greatest good. It starts with the parent. Sharon Ballantine has answers, and guidance that will change the world of parents and ultimately their children in her new book, "The Art of Blissful Parenting."

“I am honored to be reading and signing my books on the tour, and talking with parents about how children can be taught that violence should not be an option, and other issues like doing well in school," says author Sharon Ballantine. “It goes beyond telling children what is right and wrong. There is so much violence and pain that can be avoided by teaching children what it really means to feel and then decide how to act, through teaching them to listen to their own Internal Guidance."

In her new book, "The Art of Blissful Parenting" author Sharon Ballantine candidly shares how she learned to overcome her fears as a mother, her mistakes, and how she came into her own 'Internal Guidance System' and taught it to her children. It is her mission and passion above all else to help parents understand how to teach their children how to understand themselves and the world. Why do children bully others and why do they become victims? The list of what our children are exposed to goes on. Come to the book events and learn, share and feel better and more confident as a parent.
