The Conscious Parent: Transforming Ourselves, Empowering Our Children

This innovative parenting style recognizes the child's potential to spark a deep soul-searching leading to transformation in parents. Instead of being merely the receiver of the parents' psychological and spiritual legacy, children function as ushers of the parent's development. Once parents are learning alongside their children, power, control and dominance become an archaic language.

When Karen Siff Exkorn's son, Jake, was diagnosed with autism, she struggled to pull together comprehensive information about the disorder.

Thirty years ago it affected only 1 in 2,500; today 1 out of every 88 children in the United States and 1 out of 64 in the UK are affected. Autism has quickly become a worldwide problem.
