Abstract
Ce livre propose une réflexion sur l?ensemble de la culture familiale (valeurs, priorités, vie quotidienne et communautaire, discipline, etc.) basée sur l?ouverture d?esprit, la tolérance et la diversité. Cette façon de percevoir la vie parentale permet d?accueillir les nouvelles idées sans se départir de son jugement et de faciliter l?intégration pour tirer le meilleur de chaque situation. En s?appuyant sur des stratégies d?ouverture et d?adaptation, Apprivoiser la vie de parents incite au développement des compétences parentales en fournissant des outils pour composer plus facilement avec ses forces, ses faiblesses, son histoire familiale et son tempérament.

A young boy becomes fascinated with his mother's bindi, and asks her to explain what it is and why she wears it. She tells him that the red dot is commonly worn by Hindu women to indicate the point at which creation begins. When he wishes to have one of his own, she agrees to it, and teaches him about its cultural significance, allowing the boy to discover the magic of the bindi, which in turn gives him permission to be more fully himself.
