#149 – Dr. Shefali Tsabary – The Awakened Family

The Life of Dad After Show - Episode 149 - Dr. Shefali Tsabary - The Awakened FamilyDrShefaliTsabaryPhD_facebook

Art Eddy and Ryan Hamilton bring on Dr. Shefali Tsabary to talk about her new book, The Awakened Family. As Dr. Shefali outlines in her new book, The Awakened Family, most of children’s anxieties and fears stem from their parent’s unresolved issues – from how they were raised as children. Only once the parent can identify and heal their own emotional baggage will their children be free to be their own individuals.

The Awakened Parent - Dr. Shefali TsabaryWhen Dr. Shefali tells parents that they are the ones that need to change or need therapy, not their children, they are at once shocked and intrigued. After all, until now, the parenting model has been set up in such a way that if the child exhibits a problem behavior, it is always the child who is sent for therapy to be “fixed” while the parent gets a coffee from Starbucks.

Many parents may protest that Dr. Shefali‘s model gives children too much power and control. This is not the case. Moving away from fear-based concerns of “who has the greater control?” she reframes the parenting relationship as one of kinship and mutual reciprocity. She urges parents to see their children as teachers, where they have as much to offer the parent in terms of emotional growth as they have to learn. When the dynamic turns from linear to circular, where both parent and child are seen as growing together, the parent is challenged to turn the spotlight on their own issues and discover all the ways they have yet to grow themselves.

The Awakened Family lays out a clear path to more effective, rewarding parenting, and gives parents the tools to tune into their own needs and challenges in order to better accommodate their children’s needs.

Dr. Shefali Tsabary, Ph.D.Dr. Shefali Tsabary with Oprah Winfrey, received her doctorate in clinical psychology from Columbia University. Specializing in the integration of Western psychology and Eastern philosophy, Dr. Shefali brings together the best of both worlds for her clients. She is an expert in family dynamics and personal development and runs a private practice in New York City.

Dr. Shefali has written three books, including the award winning New York Times bestselling book The Conscious Parent. Dr. Shefali is also a keynote speaker who has presented at TEDx, Kellogg Business School, the Dalai Lama Center for Peace and Education, and other conferences and workshops around the world.

She’s also been featured on Oprah Winfrey’s Super Soul Sunday and Oprah’s Lifeclass.

The Life of Dad After Show - Episode 148 - Dustin 'The White Tiger' Fleischer & Phil Fleischer

Art Eddy and Ryan Hamilton bring on Dustin and Phil Fleisher. Dustin “The White Tiger” Fleischer is a rising pro boxer from Monmouth Beach. Dustin has a perfect 6-0 record with five KOs.

Dustin is joined by his dad Phil, who is a former boxer and staple in his son’s corner. Fleischer has been undefeated since his professional debut at Roc Nation Sports’ inaugural throne boxing event on January 9, 2015 at Madison Square Garden Theater, continuing his quest to become the first grandson of a Holocaust survivor to be crowned world champion.

The guys chat with Dustin and Phil to talk about fatherhood, how Dustin got into boxing, wanting to fight UFC’s Conor McGregor and more. Dustin and Phil share family stories of when the two boxed each other, and the powerful lessons they learned from Dustin‘s grandfather surviving the Holocaust.

Dustin is very passionate about the Monmouth County SPCA. Fleischer‘s aim to “knock out” animal abuse began 4 months ago when he began fostering Missy, who was brought to SPCA because her owner could no longer keep her. Shutdown and unengaged, Fleischer worked with Missy for several months to help her develop social skills and awareness. Thanks to Fleischer‘s devotion, Missy was adopted last month.

Dustin is also an active supporter of Jewish Federation & Family Services/Cafe Europa and Team LeGrand of the Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation.
