Buddhism for mothers

by Jade Nichols (follow)
Healthy Parenting (27)     
Buddhism is often mistaken to be a religion, when it is in fact a simple and beautiful way of life. After reading Sarah Napthali's book The Complete Buddhism for Mothers, it inspired me to share a little about the benefits for mothers in particular, about integrating Buddhist teachings into their lives.

A mother's love is like no other, but children are the greatest teachers with little sympathy; they test our patience every day. Integrating Buddhist teachings into your parenting can be of extreme benefit to you and your children's lives. With an emphasis on mindfulness, patience and compassion, the teachings inspire us to reach our full potential as a parent.

There are endless benefits for mothers in regards to our connections with our children, the pace and the peace in our lives, how much we enjoy every moment, and how our children choose to confide in us when they reach puberty and move into adulthood.

The book addresses common questions and challenges that every mother comes by, including subjects like 'Is this all?', 'Where am I going?' And covers meditation, self-image, finding happiness, relationships with your partner, social life, and much, much more.

The author Sarah Napthali has published quite a few books about applying and integrating this ancient and increasingly popular philosophy into our lives. I personally recommend The Complete Buddhism for Mothers which is an 'all in one' book which includes all the different age groups of children. She also includes plenty of information of the history and different types of Buddhism, short stories, and many different teachings and practices that you can apply to daily life.
