"The book is both a personal story and an insightful journey into holistic living and parenting. Perhaps the most powerful thread weaving through both Maria's personal story and her advice on traveling a holistic path, is the message that women must rediscover their mothering intuition and learn to trust their gut instincts. Listening to one's inner voice is one of the greatest skills any parent can cultivate, whether they choose to follow holistic parenting, or a more conventional route." - Nancy Peplinsky, founder and executive director, Holistic Moms Network "Maria's path of discovery has achieved something very rare and precious. That she has been willing to share her wisdom with us is a priceless gift." - Kim John Payne, M.Ed., author of Simplicity Parenting, Beyond Winning, and The Soul of Discipline. "This book reflects the intuitive and practical experiences of Maria on her path of conscious parenting. Through her experiences, readers are able to expand their awareness for their own journey as well. Kudos, Maria for an authentic, insightful book." - Jeanne Ohm, DC, executive editor and publisher, Pathway to Wellness Magazine
I have listened to the ramblings of child experts all my life and was refreshed to hear the key message of author Maria Gavriel in ?Love Centered Parenting? that parents are really the ones who know best what is good for their children and family.
In her book Love Centered Parenting Gavriel urges parents to learn the skill of listening to the sound of their inner wisdom and relying on intuition to determine what is best for their child. Husband and wife working together can discover the best approaches to take and then can rely on community for support.
Gavriel's holistic approach to life includes an emphasis on healthy foods, natural birth, breast feeding, and avoiding the traps of the commercialization of children, the negative impact of media, the dangers of processed (refined) sugar, and the risks of vaccinating children.
Gavriel writes with conviction, backed up not only by personal experience but with extensive research which she cites throughout the book. In the early pages I was hesitant about taking an intuitive approach to parenting and shying away from experts, but pages later the approach is not only becomes less of a concern and actually begins to make sense.
Anyone facing the prospect of raising a child for the first time, or of raising a teenager for the first time, will benefit greatly from reading ?Love Centered Parenting.?
