In an episode of Mom2Mom with Maria Sansone, Destini said that in her new book, "Very Intentional Parenting," she suggests that a peaceful, gentle, conscious parenting approach is a way of raising kids using respect, boundaries, and limitations rooted in compassion, and nonviolent communication.

And, she teaches parents that they can only be their best versions of parents when they take care of themselves first.

No worries, she gets concrete, offering real-life solutions to everyday problems (i.e. the dreaded morning routine). Davis also shares what it's like to have her first book hit the shelves.
