Do you know what a thrill it is to be able to meet one of your major life influences? Carol Tuttle is the creator of the Dressing Your Truth program that I have raved about as well as the author of some of the most influential books that I have ever read.
I had the opportunity to interview Carol today and am thrilled to be able to share her insights with you. Our main point of discussion centers around the topic of personal identity.
If you have ever felt like you have lost your identity due to the pressures of life, the constant service we give to our families, or have simply struggled in understanding who you are, TUNE IN!
I have always thought that I had a strong sense of personal identity most of my life. I was always clear on what I wanted and for every stage of life I had a vision for myself. (I’ve since found out through Carol’s books that this is a natural gift I have to see the bigger picture). But that doesn’t mean that I always understood this myself. Carol’s books have brought more clarity on who I was and who the people around me are than any other book or program I’ve ever seen. We’re talking a MASSIVE SHIFT in my perspective here.
Carol just released her latest book, The Child Whisperer, The Ultimate Handbook for Raising Happy, Successful, and Cooperative Children, this week–which sold out on Amazon the first day! Books are back in stock (unless they’ve sold out again!), but you should act fast to take advantage of the bonuses that she’s providing for those who purchase this first week of release (details found at thechildwhisperer.com). Order it now even if it has to be on backorder!
Quick Book Review
It doesn’t matter if you are a parent or not, or if you have small children or are now an empty nester. I was amazed at the insight I gained in this incredible book. Not just about the unique nature of my own determined child, but about myself. Carol presents four different types of children and in great detail discusses how to appropriately understand and parent to each of these types.
The Fun Loving Child
The Sensitive Child
The Determined Child
The More Serious Child
Everything from how to potty train, to what extra-curricular activities would be best suited, to dating life, to discipline, to motivation, and beyond. It’s captivating and revealing on so many levels. Reading about the “More Serious Child” (which is the type of child and person that I am) filled me with an amazing peaceful clarity. It was an emotional experience for me to read about the challenges and strengths of my own type and to finally have some understanding of a lifetime of my own behavior and thoughts and feelings. Oh yes, but this is about our own children too, right?! We’ve experienced our own share of struggles with Buzzy and this book has provided the greatest insight on how to tailor our parenting strategies and solutions to fit his nature.
*And just a note for all of you with grown children who don’t necessarily read parenting books anymore…I lent my copy to my fabulous mother and she devoured it and has read certain parts several times, experiencing a lot of personal healing in herself.
I can’t even begin to tell you the incredible enriching conversations that this has evoked with my family and friends who have read the book. Every single conversation we have we end up talking about the things that we have learned and how it applies to our life.
The only regret I have is that I didn’t know all of this earlier. I could have saved myself so much heart ache, misunderstandings, and would have lived with such higher esteem of myself AND others had I understood this information much earlier. I’m just so grateful that I have it now.
I’m giving away a free copy!
If you’d like to enter the giveaway please leave a comment on why you need this book 🙂 The winner will be announced on Monday.
And now, without further adieu, I’d love to introduce you to Carol!
