The Dance of Parenting: Finding Your Inner Choreographer, is a great companion book for parents, all the way through the young adult years. It walks with moms and dads through common parenting challenges that derail the parenting dance. Then it moves through an easy framework for empowering parents to confidently discover their individual solutions to a challenge they have encountered in their parenting dance.
Natasha, a parent and public health nurse, uses four foundational capabilities with which every parent can work.
The L.O.V.E. guide in the second part of the book provides prompts for parents as they move towards getting their parenting dance back to ‘flow’.
This book invites parents to:
- Feel empowered to parent their kids successfully, all the way into adulthood.
- Customize solutions to little or big challenges.
- Reflect on their parenting through self-assessment.
- Utilize dynamic parenting practices with grounded rationale.
- Work through a specific parenting challenge or conflict, coming out with more engagement with their child or young adult instead of more disconnection.
- Understand how to overcome the common causes of becoming drained by the dance of parenting.
- Even out the experience of the ever changing tween and teen years.
- Feel inspired, even though challenged or tired.

“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. :)”
