“I am here to facilitate individual growth and help heal the world one family at a time” ~ Nina

Whether you’re contemplating conceiving for the first time or you already have children, Parenting for Life provides important tools to help you connect with your growing or grown kids in new and powerful ways. Nina draws from more than twenty-five years of wisdom as a therapist, life coach, and—most importantly—a parent to guide others through the mazes and pitfalls of parenting today. With dedicated sections on how to grow, evolve, and ultimately heal your relationship, this book offers practical wisdom and relational insights that yield dramatic results. Exploring common family dynamics and patterns, Nina Sidell gently guides readers toward an understanding and ownership of their lives and relationships. She then builds upon this foundation to foster mutual respect, love, and empathy between parents and children. Homework exercises at the end of each chapter help readers gain further understanding through their personal parenting journeys. Parenting for Life is a revolutionary guidebook for individuals and couples, both before and after they become parents. It also helps adult children identify problems so that they can better understand and, if necessary, forgive their parents as well.

5stars A Wealth of Information on Parenting

“I happened to attend one of Ms. Sidell’s workshop/seminars and found her to be very insightful and professional in her knowledge and scope of parenting. I was impressed enough to purchase her book right there and then and found it to be a wealth of information that I can actually use in my day-to-day interactions with my children. Kudos to Ms. Sidell and I highly recommend her book to those seeking a more thorough understanding of the trials and tribulations of parenting.”

Nina’s book adds wisdom and a much-needed spiritual component for raising children today. She clearly and profoundly points the way for parents and children of all ages to grow together in their relationship through life. Spiritual parenting is the highest form of service. Highly recommended.

5stars Go-To Manual for Parents

“The ideal go-to manual for parents of all ages, who have children of all ages. This guide through the wilds of parent-child relationship is written from the perspective of a woman who is both a psychotherapist and mom who has ‘been there, done that, got the t-shirt’. What makes the information all the more credible is that the author has raised her sons to successful young adulthood. Her personal and professional take on the topic is evident as she encourages the reader to take responsibility for his or her choices in the ways in which they parent. This magnificent book belongs not only on the shelves of parents, but those of therapists who work with families.”
