SoulTalk with Kute Blackson

May 9, 2023

Get ready for an enlightening episode of the SoulTalk Podcast! I had the honor of inviting Dr. Shefali, a clinical psychologist, acclaimed author, international speaker, and wisdom teacher again, to discuss her latest book, The Parenting Map: Step-by-Step Solutions to Consciously Create the Ultimate Parent-Child Relationship.

Dr. Shefali challenges the conventional paradigms and expectations society places on raising children. Instead, she emphasizes the importance of accepting your child’s true nature and raising them based on it. We dive deep into the importance of accepting ourselves and others, without overemphasizing productivity.

Join Dr. Shefali and me as we discuss the world of parenting and give you some of the best tips for raising children. So, take action to become a conscious parent and ensure that your children grow up in a nurturing environment that allows them to flourish.
