A friend of mine is the mother of a middle-schooler. I often see her borrowing many interesting books from the library. Mostly about parenting. Last time when I saw her in the library, she was checking out the book "The Awakened Family" by Shefali Tsabary.
Shefali is a clinical psychologist, speaker and New York Times bestselling author. And this book, as I figured out later, was about raising children through establishing a deep relationship with them so that they can thrive to be their best, truest selves.
Anyway, coming back to my story. This morning I saw something that is even more interesting. I found her son reading this parenting book in a corner with utmost attention and seriousness. I was intimidated and curious. When I asked, he replied, "Don't tell mom! I want to read this to come up with my counter strategy!"
We are indeed in the middle of a revolution.
