Ready, Set, Breathe: Practicing Mindfulness with Your Children for Fewer Meltdowns and a More Peaceful Family

“This is the book I’ve wished for – all my swirling thoughts about mindfulness, put neatly into a book, with clever suggestions on how to work with my kids and hilarious anecdotes of what life is truly like with younglings. I’ve been practicing mindfulness for several years and have been finding ways over this time to introduce the concepts to my 7 and 10 year old boys. This book brings together so many different ideas and has me grabbing for paper and pen to write them all down. Carla’s book reminds me to take a breath, respond with openness and curiosity, and connect non-judgmentally with the amazing kids in front of me.” -Reader Review on Amazon

Parenting in the Present Moment: How to Stay Focused on What Matters

“I don’t love a lot of parenting books but this one, I loved! Unlike many parenting books, Parenting in the Present Moment is not written from an ivory tower. It has a very personal feel and the key points are so simple to grasp making it not only easy to read, but easy to love. If you struggle with being mindful like me and so don’t think you could be in the present moment if you tried, check out this book. Carla gave me hope that maybe, just maybe, I could be the more mindful person I strive to be!! And guess what – shortly after I finished her book, I found that I was closer to being that person. Her points and tips stuck that easily! Wonderful read.” –Reader Review on Amazon
