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)
Written in a clear and engaging style, this warm and simple meditation facilitates parenting with awareness, purpose and love. "Buddha Torrents" on "Buddhism for Mothers of Young Children""
