With her children at school, a mother is on to a new stage of her life, playing a new role. The daily challenges she confronts have changed, yet for each one Buddhist teachings of mindfulness, compassion and calm are invaluable. This book explores those teachings through many scenarios, including managing the stress of numerous deadlines, coping with routine and repetition, answering children's tricky questions about how the world works, fitting in with other parents, managing fears and expectations for their children, and dealing with difficult behaviours in both children and adults.
About the Author
Sarah Napthali has never been on a retreat for more than two nights and she can't remember ever meditating for more than an hour and a half. She describes herself as no spiritual giant but rather someone who is bumbling along, constantly humbled by how much she still needs to progress but also amazed at how applying Buddhist teachings can improve her day. She has two children and is the author of Buddhism for Mothers (Allen & Unwin, 2003)
I really enjoyed this book as it reflects the experiences of so many mothers who are trying to live peacefully and raise their children mindfully in the modern world. The author is very realistic about the day to day, busy life of an average family and how difficult it can be to try and stay calm and centered. her ideas and suggestions are practical, easy to implement and they work! I can recommend this for any busy mum who wants to feel calmer, wether you are interested in budhism or not.
