Explains how to resolve inner conflicts, includes advice on compensating for the poor parenting one received as a child, and suggests self-parenting exercises

Publishers Description
SELF-PARENTING: The Complete Guide to Your Inner Conversations is the classic and original how-to book defining the concept of "self-parenting." Many of us grew up within a parental environment that did not support our childhood needs for love, support, and nurturing. As adults, we mentally continue the same patterns as an "Inner Parent" that left us feeling alone and abandoned as a child. By beginning the daily practice of positive Self-Parenting, the negative outer parenting patterns taught as a child (and subsequently internalized as an adult) can be recognized and reversed. The foundation of the SELF-PARENTING is the daily practice of the Self-Parenting Exercises, a thirty-minute session of cognitive interaction between the Inner Parent and Inner Child. During these daily half-hour sessions Illustrated In the book, the reader learns how to love, support, and nurture his or her Inner Child as well as increase their awareness of the profound implications of their Inner Conversations in the "real world."

Reviews - What do customers think about Self Parenting: The Complete Guide to Your Inner Conversations?

A book that will change your life  Feb 23, 2007
Most books like this tell you to love your inner child, but don't tell you how to go about it, or the exercises are long and involved. This book is written in a light and humorous way so is easy to read in a short time. The exercises really work and are easy to do. This book changed my life, and if you read it and do the exercises, I can practically guarantee it will change your life for the better.
A "How To Actually Do It" book  Sep 12, 2005
I have read many books that discuss the benefits of developing a relationship with your Inner Child. This book offers you an actual method that you can put to use every day for doing just that. I have been using Dr. Pollard's technique of thirty minute sessions every day for nearly two years and have found it to be a very rewarding adventure. I promise you that it has changed my life in many ways. A great book and a very practical methodology for getting to know and understand and "listen to" your inner child.

Wonderful Book...  Sep 10, 2005
This small and easy to read book teaches a wonderful way of reconnecting with the Inner Child. I am a self parenting practitioner since only 3 month and can only recommend this book to everyone who is willing to face their true essence and is willing to learn one of the most valuable things in life, to listen. Listening to everything your Inner Child has to say and was never allowed to or afraid of expressing. It also helped me in my daily relationships and interactions to become more aware of my listening skills.
This is the task in the beginning of Self Parenting to listen to the voice of your Inner Child and to relearn the parenting style you have been exposed to.
Self Parenting is like everything else in Life. It is not a quick fix, like a tablet you swallow, it requires endurance, commitment and strength in order to feel the results. Like exercise or meditation. To do it just once or on and off will not create the change you are looking for.
But the good news is, IT IS FUN!!!
Self-Parenting: The Complete Guide to Your Inner Converstns.  Jan 27, 2000
The information provided in Self-Parenting was written with great clarity, which makes this book easy to understand and use. The ideas conveyed here were also done with love and nurturing. Both my inner child and I LOVED the whimsy of the illustrations and large print. It's a very well-written book and a great tool. I've used this technique in the past and found it very helpful. I expect to get back to it in the near future.
An excellent tool for re-parenting of self  Dec 25, 1998
I have been using this book with my clients for more than seven years. I am so disappointed that it is out of print. It is a positive life experience when practicing self-parenting--going from negative inner parenting talk (e.g., "you're stupid", "life is a bummer", "you'll never get what you want", etc.) to having the loving/nurturing parent listen to the inner child and allowing him/her to be heard (e.g., "I want you to succeed because you are worth it--what do you want to do to make that happen? The child responds "I want to go to school to make myself the best I can be". The parent agrees, the child goes to school and everyone wins!!). It is a very simple concept and a very powerful tool from changing folks shame based existence into love, kindness and success. I would recommend Self-Parenting to anyone who has grown up in guilt, fear, shame and rage.
