DePino covers all bases in her parenting book by including segments on how to bolster confidence in kids, encourage responsible behavior, motivate excellence, teach coping skills, and discipline wisely and compassionately. The principles of Mindfulness permeate all of the anecdotes about issues that every parent encounters such as kids' preoccupation with electronic devices, respect for parents and other authority figures, and dealing with conflicts at home and school. While reinforcing important parenting skills in a practical, user-friendly manner, the author stresses Mindfulness techniques such as mindful listening and talking, assertive communication, and loving kindness to help parents communicate better with their kids and to help families live more happily and harmoniously. As the author states in her introduction: 'If you incorporate Mindfulness into your daily dealings with your children, it's highly likely they'll turn out to be smart, caring, and responsible kids who know how to deal with all the problems that come their way.' -- Elaine Karmilowicz, principal, Bright Horizons, St. Mary Hospital Child Development Center
