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.

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. (Posted on October 5, 2014)

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. (Posted on October 3, 2014)

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. (Posted on October 2, 2014)

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.
