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 is the author of the highly successful Buddhism for Mothers and Buddhism for Mothers of Young Children.
Within this book, mothers will find the inspiration to be more patient, loving and attentive towards their children, other family members, other parents, but most of all, themselves.
Remarkable and remarkably useful... For all those mothers grappling with the inevitable problems of school-age children this is a book guaranteed, at least, to offer comfort and provide good advice. Sydney Morning Herald I absolutely loves this book. I loved it for its honesty, openness, frankness and tender adherence to a belief system steeped in the antithesis to indoctrination - simplicity and love. Australian Women Online
