Dear Caring Parent,
I have come to know, for sure, this about parenting:
My inner thoughts, feelings, and imaginings (my mindfulness) are what shape my parenting more than anything else. Mindful parenting affects what I learn about. All the things I am mindful about affect how I interact with my child in joy, in conflict, in chaos, not to mention how I interact with my parenting team members, family, friends, and self. They affect my parenting success.
I also know for sure that when I am coursing through the experience of parenting, I do best when I have a default system to ‘collapse into.’ Having a default system that buoys me up makes me more energetic, more joyful, and more confident when I’m problem-solving, feeling overwhelmed, dealing with something new to me, wondering if I’m a good parent, worrying, or feeling unappreciated or misunderstood.
This book, The Dance of Parenting – Finding Your Inner Choreographer, is me writing to you, based on my personal experience and twenty-plus years of professional work as a maternal child health nurse.
Parents’ stories are all different, but we have so much in common! By the end of the book, you’ll have a simple, systematic, loving guide to help you through your range of experience in parenting.
Take care now, Natasha

More importantly, she is one of the most loving, kind and whole-hearted women I know. She comes to her work from the premise that we all want what’s best for our children. With gentle guidance, backed by the latest parenting research and her many years in the field, she gently guides parents to determine what is best for everyone in the family with a loving, compassionate approach toward the parents and the children, alike.” LL, Mom
“Natasha speaks of an innate wisdom that parents inherently possess and how to reconnect with it when you find yourself thrown off track by the sometimes unsteady seas of parenting. She offers concrete and practical steps in the L.O.V.E. process to get back on course when you feel like you’re adrift with your child. I had several ah-ha moments about a challenge when reading the book.” Don, the Grandfather

“It is rare to find a book that applies from early childhood all the way up through an empty nest, but in reading Natasha Solovieff’s book The Dance of Parenting, I found thoughtful perspective and truths that extend over the years. A bright, positive, useful approach to the hardest job we love the most – with tips and strategies for all those times it is the hardest job we love the least. :)”
