Summary

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.

Narrator is awful

I absolutely love the book. But the narrator has a sing song voice with the exact same way of reading every sentence. It drives me crazy. It's hard to listen to and understand what she is saying. But the information in the book is amazing.
