Misadventures of a Parenting Yogi by Brian Leaf is a book from the author who brought us all Misadventures of a Garden State Yogi (which is also great). In this one, he is trying to be a conscious parent and shares with us the many hits and misses in the journey of parenthood.
“In this hilarious, heartfelt book, Brian Leaf tackles parenting with a unique blend of research and humor. He explores Attachment Parenting, as well as Playful, Unconditional, Simplicity, and good old Dr. Spock parenting. He tries cloth diapers, no diapers, co-sleeping, and no sleeping. Join him on his rollicking journey in this one-of-a-kind parenting guide.” – Misadventures of a Parenting Yogi
Misadventures of a Parenting Yogi is a fun, funny, and warm book that gives the reader a smile. Even if you don’t agree with everything the author says in the book, you’ll enjoy reading about his misadventures of parenthood, and the many adorable and heart-touching adventures along the way.
The book is filled with chapters focusing on a topic of parenthood. My favorite chapter was the “How to Talk So Kids Will Listen and Listen So Kids Will Talk” because it is so true, and not just for kids! This can help everyone with their communication skills!
Although I don’t have kids, I found this book to be excellent in case I ever do have kids. It is filled with funny yet useful tips on parenthood while trying to keep yourself sane and true to yourself. I also love how he uses all of his experience now with kids to see through to how it has actually helped him get to the heart of yoga, and stay positive through it all. I definitely recommend this book to parents and future parents.
