Course objectives:

  • Discuss how to cultivate worthiness in families-the knowledge that we are each always worthy of love and belonging
  • Explain how to engage in creativity and play as a family
  • Discuss how to cultivate a practice of gratitude and joy in the home
  • Explain the value of respect and hard work within a culture of "fun, fast, and easy"
  • Discuss how to embrace imperfection as a parent and how to teach our children to have the courage to be authentic and compassionate

Dr. Brené Brown's Ten Guideposts to Wholehearted Families

We all know that perfect parenting does not exist, yet we still struggle with the social expectations that teach us that being imperfect is synonymous with being inadequate. These messages are powerful and we end up spending precious time and energy managing perception and the carefully edited versions of the families we show to the world. On The Gifts of Imperfect Parenting, Dr. Brené Brown invites us on a journey to transform the lives of parents and children alike. Drawing on her 12 years of research on vulnerability, courage, worthiness, and shame, she presents 10 guideposts to creating what she describes as "wholehearted" families where each of us can continually learn and grow as we reach our full potential, including:


  • Cultivating worthiness in families—the knowledge that we are each always worthy of love and belonging
  • Vulnerability—the key to true connection
  • Engaging in creativity and play as a family
  • Practicing gratitude and joy in the home
  • Respect and hard work in a culture of "fun, fast, and easy"

"It's actually our ability to embrace imperfection that will help us teach our children to have the courage to be authentic, the compassion to love themselves and others, and the sense of connection that gives true purpose and meaning to life," states Dr. Brown. The Gifts of Imperfect Parenting is a practical and hopeful program for raising children who know that they are worthy of love, belonging, and joy.

I found this program to be useful even though I do not have children. This works for me and my relationship with my inner child. I would recommend it for anyone who had a crappy childhood!

Smart, comforting, and insightful. I have had it with politically correct uber parenting. Brene was loving, practical, and straight-forward. We do need to allow children to see that we struggle.

This was a very helpful approach to parenting. My husband and I have two grown children and a teenager and the ideas that Brene Brown discussed really changed our orientation toward parenting our youngest in a very positive way. I wish we had known about it sooner.

Since listening (multiple times) to this program I have noticed a shift in my parenting. The shift is hard to explain other than I am more comfortable being in the moment with my kids, both in their silliness and in sharing their hurts. I definitely recommend.

This CD provides not only provides wonderful incite about parenting; but also gives clarity about how you were parented. Ways of parenting seem to be passed on from generation to generation. Brene" Brown explain how parenting can be done without or at least with much less shame.

Excellent, excellent, excellent! Brene's message is always the same, but the way she tailors it to different situations is so enlightening. parenting is SUCH a challenge, who doesn't need some shame busting there? Her main advice for families to teach the distinction between bad choices and bad "beingness" is so key. it changed my parenting approach to my teenager right away, and actually empowered me to be more authoritative without the fear of being shaming. What a breakthrough tool.

This set of CDs is outstanding! I would recommend it to everyone who is interested in growing. For me, Brené Brown has been life changing. I learned about shame and guilt! Wow, who knew? Brené uses her research in a way that makes it easy to understand. I was blown away by these CDs. I have listened to them at least 5 times already.

My thanks to Sounds True for asking Brené to do this recording!

The Gifts of Imperfect Parenting is from the heart and filled with practical, personal insights and suggestions. I only wish this sage wisdom was available when I was a young mother. As a grandmother, I gave a set to my daughter and son-in-law to support them in parenting their sons.
Thanks you, Brene and Sounds True for another excellent product.

I greatly enjoyed Brene's Power of Vulnerability and was often reflecting on how to bring it into my parenting as well as my own life. This helps do just that, not new if you've heard Power of Vulnerability but does sharpen focus if you're working with children.

This morning I woke up to a producers pick of Brené and I thought to myself, there is noone I'd rather spend my 51st birthday with, besides my daughter, than Brené. So, I decided to get this audio. It was well worth it! I so much love her willingness to be vulnerable and through it teach me that it's okay to live it too. Brené, I love you and I thank you.

I have been a big fan of Brown's work for some time now and have been waiting for her to put something together specifically on parenting. I highly recommend this easy to listen to, funny, thoughtful and quite incisive program on how to raise yourself while you raise your children! Bravo Brene and thank you!
