I think readers are primed for a parenting revolution. I think the material in this book will be received with open arms and a great sigh of relief.

Deidre Steadman came to understand the psychological benefits of fierce non-conformity and staunch independence when she personally came to appreciate the psychological assests of the ‘rebel. ’It prompted her in writing “The Revolutionary Who’s Raising You: Empowered Parenting and Spiritual Psychology” (published by Balboa Press AU).

In this book, Steadman combines psychological savvy, storytelling, metaphor and humor to weave together an evocative vision for empowering parenting. This guide tackles the many misconceptions upon which the old psychology of parenting is built. She dispels the parent-by numbers myth and helps parents reawaken to their instinctive confidence, their natural clarity and their innate joy.

“I think readers are primed for a parenting revolution. I think the material in this book will be received with open arms and a great sigh of relief,” Steadman says. “Parents instinctively know that there are fatal flaws within a traditional approach, but they are floundering to find an alternative. I believe that our children can be our collaborators, they are sometimes our students, and most often they are our teachers.”

Filled with examples and actionable advice, “The Revolutionary Who’s Raising You” seeks to inspire parents, educators and mental health workers to raise self-confident, resilient, happy children. Above all, this book awakens parents to the spiritual savvy and psychological mastery of their child.
