Designed with busy parents in mind, an easy-to-digest guide to making the most of being a parent based on Buddhist principles, from the author of the acclaimed Buddhism for Mothers
Parenthood can be a time of great inner turmoil, yet parenting books invariably focus on nurturing children rather than the parents who struggle to raise them. This book is different: it is an invaluable book for stressed parents. It explores parents' potential to be with their children in the all-important present moment; to gain the most joy out of being with them. Using Buddhist practices, Sarah Napthali offers ways of coping with the day-to-day challenges of parenthood, ways that also allow space for the deeper reflections about who we are and what makes us happy. From advice for the sleep deprived to dealing with the drama of toddler tantrums and thoughts on teenage egocentrism, these teachings are presented in short enough formats to digest on the run. This is Buddhism at its most accessible, applied to the busy, daily realities of ordinary parents.
