"Conscious Parenting is a call to collectively raise our standards of life and reach the potential inherent in ourselves and our kids. The mind-blowing conclusions in this book make it an essential guide and resource for every person who knows a child--we'll be wise to listen." --Ruby Roth, author and illustrator of children's books That's Why We Don't Eat Animals, Vegan Is Love, and V Is for Vegan "In this important and much-needed volume, Dr. Gabriel Cousens and Montessori teacher Leah Lynn weave insights gleaned from decades of clinical research as well as from deep immersion in respected ancient wisdom traditions. This pioneering book is perhaps the first to address the important issues surrounding nutrition and parenting in a deep and holistic way." --Will Tuttle, PhD, author of The World Peace Diet "Kudos to Gabriel Cousens, a long-time pioneer in promoting veganism and increased spirituality, and Leah Lynn for writing such an important book. Conscious Parenting is encyclopedic in providing the scientific and spiritual basis for becoming a successful vegan parent, including how to best support a child's physical, social, emotional, and spiritual development.... At a time when it is becoming increasingly apparent that a societal shift toward vegan diets is essential to efforts to help avert a climate catastrophe and other environmental disasters and to help reduce the current epidemic of diet-related killer diseases, this thoroughly researched and clearly written book is a valuable addition to the rapidly increasing literature on veganism." --Richard H. Schwartz, PhD, Professor Emeritus, College of Staten Island and author of Judaism and Vegetarianism "Following Dr. Cousens's guidance, you and your children can reach extraordinary health." --Neal Barnard, MD, author of Power Foods for the Brain "Gabriel Cousens and Leah Lynn have restored parenthood to its true purpose: drawing out the Light of God that is a child." --Rabbi Michael Shevack, founder of the Association for Universal Judaism and author of The Six Fix "A landmark contribution in the field of pediatric care." --Anna Maria and Brian Clement, PhD, LN, directors of the Hippocrates Health Institute
