Dr. Walfish’s book is an invitation to confront ourselves as parents, but not in a harsh or negative way that leaves you feeling disheartened. Instead, I believe parents will feel encouraged by this book to look at themselves with a new, edifying lens, leaving them feeling realistically confident, and genuinely capable. That’s certainly what it’s done for me.”

–Hal E. Runkel, author of ScreamFree Parenting

The Self Aware Parent is a wise and powerful book. Imbued with the author’s deep understanding of how relationships work, the book includes practical strategies all of us can use to become better parents, and better people. Both as a parent and a professional, I highly recommend this book.”

–Michael Gurian, Author of The Wonder of Boys and The Wonder of Girls

“As a child prodigy, I was the first one in my family to go into psychotherapy because I did not want to repeat what my parents did. Not that they didn’t love, they did. I wanted to undo the old and put new chips in my parenting computer. I highly recommend The Self Aware Parent by Dr. Fran Walfish as a guiding tool that every mother and father should read. It is a necessity!”

–Anna Maria Alberghetti, operatic singer and actress

Most of us want to parent differently than was done to us, we just don’t know how. Dr. Fran uses wisdom and examples to gently empower us to become conscious of and change our parenting patterns. A must for every parent, regardless of the age of your child!”

–Dr. Becky A. Bailey, author of Easy to Love, Difficult to Discipline

“Being a parent has been the greatest learning lesson of my life, and Dr. Fran’s book, The Self Aware Parent, helped me learn much about myself. The book speaks to parents and offers a great deal of practical wisdom.”

–Katey Sagal, actress, singer, producer
