Dear Caring Parents!
Are you saying to yourself “I can’t believe I keep saying THAT!”. Or are you going round and round on the same worry? Or maybe you are feeling uncertain because you can’t figure out if you are doing this parenting thing right – there’s so MUCH input? Maybe you just are exhausted from all you are doing and are having trouble “feelin’ the luv” with some parenting challenge?
We don’t have to be perfect with our parenting, thank goodness! But it sure is nice to know how to right it all when things are stressing us, causing rifts in relationships, or we are just plain old overwhelmed. And it’s REALLY NICE to build insights and skills that keep us from getting there as much in the first place.
This book is about just that, setting it right. It’s about you finding your own customized, loving way to get back in step. This book is my toast to the L.O.V.E. of loving our children!
Caring for our children is like a great dance – it takes us to great highs and, yes also, great lows. We recognize that parenting is our ‘greatest task’. We put our best selves forward for it. And then life happens and we’re in unfamiliar territory. We’re totally uncertain! We go from being ‘dance on’ to ‘dance off’.
The Dance of Parenting – Finding your Inner Choreographer, discusses what parenting looks like when the parenting dance is flowing, common things that get moms and dads out of flow, and how, whether it’s a common cause or not, you can get back into your very own flow. It’s based on my professional view into the hearts of parents and children over many years, as well as living my own very unpredictable experience as a parent.
So, if you are looking to INCREASE YOUR CONFIDENCE and AFFIRM your parenting (you ARE already pretty darn smart about it), REDUCE PARENTING STRESS through creative problem solving, or to GROW YOUR PARENTING SMARTS, join me in this book. Find YOUR way to new, deeply fulfilling and loving solutions. Expand your PEI – parental emotional intelligence. You can!
Take care now, Natasha – BSN, M.Ed

More importantly, she is one of the most loving, kind and whole-hearted women I know. She comes to her work from the premise that we all want what’s best for our children. With gentle guidance, backed by the latest parenting research and her many years in the field, she gently guides parents to determine what is best for everyone in the family with a loving, compassionate approach toward the parents and the children, alike.” LL, Mom

She offers concrete and practical steps, L.O.V.E., to get back on course when you feel like you’re adrift with your child. I had several ah-ha moments about a challenge when reading the book.” Don, the Grandfather

“It is rare to find a book that applies from early childhood all the way up through an empty nest, but in reading Natasha Solovieff’s book The Dance of Parenting, I found thoughtful perspective and truths that extend over the years. A bright, positive, useful approach to the hardest job we love the most – with tips and strategies for all those times it is the hardest job we love the least. :)”
