I found the information and research on more peaceful cultures interesting and they didn't write down a couple of things from this book. For the most part though I felt like this was telling me how as an American I've already screwed up in my parenting. I was looking for more examples of how to be more mindful parent rather than how I have not been one.
Peterson is writing a book with a crucial underlying premise, that mindfulness and emotional self-awareness is foundational to healthy parenting. Unfortunately, while Terrassa are great ideas in this book, I'm distracted away from them by her clear bias towards Tibetan culture. In the same way I'd be strongly turned off by a book written with a clear ethnocentric bias towards US or Western culture, she idealizes these cultures, advocating sweeping claims of superiority. Very disappointing to me, as a therapist who is also a Buddhist practicioner I was eager to learn more from her on the topic. I'd recommend Parenting from the inside out, by Dan swivel over this book
