The first two years are the most crucial time in a child’s education and development.

Parental role-modeling is the most essential component in childraising, says author and child-advocate Lee Lozowick. We can’t give our kids what we don’t have ourselves! He invites parents and educators to examine areas of unconsciousness in their own lives, pointing out how these can jeopardize a child’s well-being, and presents a strong case for making parenting a substantial part of one’s spiritual practice throughout the childraising years.

The book begins with a discussion of conscious conception and continues with a treatment of conscious pregnancy, birth and bonding. Lozowick, like so many other child advocates, stresses the importance of breastfeeding and keeping the infant “in arms” especially in the first two years of life. Giving children this optimal start is absolutely vital to their mental, emotional and physical health and well-being.

Later chapters include such relevant topics as honesty in our communication with children; our use of language as the descriptor of reality; an holistic context of education and the homeschooling alternative; and play, emotions, and energy management.

This is not your run-of-the-mill parenting book. Lee Lozowick decries the status quo of much contemporary thinking and practice about who children are and what they really need. His words have commonsense appeal, but offer no sweet consolation to those who are unwilling to make their parenting responsibilities a top priority in their lives.

Lee Lozowick is a father and a dedicated child advocate. As a spiritual teacher for an intentional community based in both the USA and Europe for the past 35 years, he has worked with hundreds of parents and children in both day-to-day and crisis situations. He is author of over 20 books, many translated into French, German and Spanish.

“I loved this book. The incredible passage about breast-feeding alone is worth the price of the book. As a pediatrician, I have been struggling for many years to put into words these things treated so eloquently by Lee Lozowick.” – Charles R. Attwood, M.D., FAAP, author: Dr. Attwood’s Low-Fat Prescription For Kids, One Diet for the Whole Family.

"As a parent, physician and child-advocate I was inspired by the material in this book. While I don't agree with everything in Lee's program, overall I can recommend Conscious Parenting as a useful guide for parents who are seriously willing to look at their own behaviors and how these affect the health and happiness of their children." – John W. Travis, M.D., MPH, co-author: Wellness Workbook.
