★★★★★ Awesome course! This course helped me when I was struggling dealing with my 7yr and 14yr daughters behavioral issues. Now I’m much calmer and am able to set boundaries much better. As every child is unique, this course helps parents identify the personality traits of children with an ayurvedic approach that is thousands of years old. I strongly recommend this course because it made my life and parenting easier.—NY

Overview

Dharma Parenting offers a uniquely individual approach to raising a happy and successful child. The word “Dharma” means a way of living that upholds the path of evolution, maintains balance, prosperity and spiritual freedom.

Dharma Parenting book, published by TarcherPeregree (Penguin) available at Amazon.

Dr. Wallace and Dr. Travis combine knowledge from modern science, Maharishi AyurVeda®, and their personal experience to show how to unfold the full potential of your child’s brain, as well as how to nurture his or her inherent brilliance and goodness.

Each lesson presents a detailed overview of how your child’s brain is developing at that age, and how that affects their needs and abilities. In addition, Dr. Wallace and Dr. Travis discuss experiences from parents from each age group so you can see how the Dharma Parenting Tools can be applied at every stage of development.MORE

Coupling old and new wisdom, this course in Dharma Parenting offers unique insight into why a child is the way he or she is and reveals how to bring each child into a state of balance. To help you understand how to use this knowledge in your own families, the lessons include interviews with parents who have applied the Dharma Parenting tools to their own situations.

For the first time, we can understand why one child learns quickly and forgets quickly while another learns and forgets slowly; why one child is hyperactive and another laid back; or why one falls asleep quickly but wakes in the night while another takes hours to fall asleep. And Dharma Parenting provides tools to help you understand and work within your child’s basic nature to nurture their growth and development.
