Show Description

This week, Valeria is joined by clinical psychologist and New York Times Bestselling Author, Dr. Shefali. Together they dive into the definition of conscious parenting, the myths and truths of the concept, the struggles of modern parenting, and the journey of radical awakening for authenticity in adulthood. Valeria also takes a vulnerable leap and shares a retrospective on the conversation with Dr. Shefali, further explaining her thoughts on conscious parenting after sitting with the idea for a few weeks. She boldly admits her mistakes as a parent, outlines the practices she uses with her own children, and details why they work (and sometimes don’t!).
