The Dance of Parenting: Finding Your Inner Choreographer, guides parents into parenting from a different part of themselves. This is necessary if they are to solidly deal with the fast paced uncertainties of digital and other rapidly changing life influences, the new options for life expression available to children, and the confounding amount of information about how to parent.
It’s time for parents to change their dance!
The book helps parents focus on their specific parenting challenges and offers easy to implement processes that foster engaged, growing relationships with their modern kids, all while expanding their own life.
Natasha, a parent and public health nurse, uses four foundational capabilities with which every parent can work.
This guide will help parents:
- Feel strongly empowered to parent their kids successfully.
- Use tools and exercises for customizing solutions to gnawing, little or big challenges.
- Reflect on their parenting through simple self-assessment.
- Free themselves of some experiences that keep them from enjoying their children.
- Have grounded rationale for dynamic parenting practices.
- Work through a specific parenting challenge or conflict, coming out with more engagement with their child instead of alienation.
- Understand how to overcome the common causes of becoming exhausted by the dance of parenting.
- Even out the unnerving experience of the ever changing tween and teen years.
- Know they’re not alone in this vast, uncertain experience of parenting.
- Feel inspired, even though challenged or tired.
- Get really good at quickly ‘reading’ their child’s needs, without all the stressing.

What readers are saying:
“If you feel called and you’re looking for parenting guidance and support, check out Natasha’s book, I can’t recommend it enough. Natasha is a highly experienced mother, parenting educator and nurse. 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, L.O.V.E., 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. :)”
