Understanding Your Child’s (and Your) Emotions

Understanding Your Child’s (and Your) Emotions

A study guide, glowing review, and slight criticism of Liberated Parents, Liberated Children

This book, “Liberated Parents, Liberated Children” is fantastic and influenced me greatly–as a mom, wife, and person. If I could describe it in one phrase, it is “emotional health”–of your child and you. This is an overview of the highlights, meant to act as a powerful study aid to the book.

The issue I take, mentioned below, is that the authors say they are opposed to a “rational” model of parenting. I attempt to show in this article that empathy and reason *are* compatible. By rejecting “reason,” I argue, there is a certain rigidity to the philosophy presented that doesn’t allow it to be fluidly adopted by its students.
