Publisher's Summary

Introduction read by author.
In The Spiritual Child, psychologist Lisa Miller presents the next big idea in psychology: the science and the power of spirituality. She explains the clear, scientific link between spirituality and health and shows that children who have a positive, active relationship to spirituality:



Are 40 percent less likely to use and abuse substances
Are 60 percent less likely to be depressed as teenagers
Are 80 percent less likely to have dangerous or unprotected sex
Have significantly more positive markers for thriving, including an increased sense of meaning and purpose and high levels of academic success

Combining cutting-edge research with broad anecdotal evidence from her work as a clinical psychologist to illustrate just how invaluable spirituality is to a child's mental and physical health, Miller translates these findings into practical advice for parents, giving them concrete ways to develop and encourage their children's - as well as their own - well-being. In this provocative, conversation-starting book, Dr. Miller presents us with a pioneering new way to think about parenting our modern youth.

Good info terrible voice

I really enjoyed what Lisa Miller had to say. It is amazing that she is the first to have studied this information. I spent 1/2 a day with Lisa as she spoke to our school and shared with our students. She is very knowledgeable and a great presenter. Unfortunately, the reader of the this audiobook has a very annoying, high voice. I almost couldn’t continue because the reader was so annoying.

good message. way too wordy and repetitive

contains a good message and was worth the read. way too repetitive though, feeling like the writer is trying to convince you with their words rather than facts and data.

contains references to.studies but does not go into the details of them. many single person examples instead of stats to try and prove a point.

overall I wish there was more depth and reliance on studies and data.
