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 coping with routine and repetition, answering children’s tricky questions about how the world works, fitting in with other parents, managing our fears and expectations for our children and dealing with difficult behaviour in both children and adults.
