A Parenting Revolution for Higher Evolution: Raising Resilient, Responsible, Compassionate Kids from the Inside Out expresses views that are not widely accepted by western society but could be embraced by parents who wish to shift their focus to raising well-adjusted children. The book begins with statistics about the increasing suicide and anxiety rates in children and moves on to discuss revolutionary parenting. Using examples from her own life, Julie Phillips Hatch explains how the world’s views are damaging the souls of our children, but provides strategies and exercises readers can use to increase awareness and bring calmness. The author encourages readers to guide children naturally, avoiding the urge to enforce their ideas of natural progression on the child, and allowing them to move through difficult transitions with ease. Examples of surface and vertical living, focusing on connections instead of social validation, and the possible effects of fear-based parenting are discussed at length. The author also advocates for free-range play and time in nature as a means to nurture a child’s creativity and decision-making skills.
Julie Phillips Hatch has been a pediatric nurse for thirty years, and a parenting coach, so her viewpoints in A Parenting Revolution for Higher Evolution seem solidly based on her observations and experiences. The exercises were easy and meaningful, incorporating opportunities for self-care and focusing on the inner characteristics of the caretaker and the child. Though the author leans toward Chinese Traditional Medicine and Taoism, values in other religions, like Christianity, are outlined. I liked the idea that what worked for one generation of children will probably not work for subsequent generations, and I encourage caregivers to read the book with an open mind.
