Buddhism for Mothers opened my eyes to a completely different way of looking at parenting, and at everything. One small example- before reading this book I would get mad or even just annoyed at my kids all the time. I couldn't figure out how to change their behavior. This book helped me see that I should start by dealing with my anger, separately from whatever my kids are doing. Basically she's saying that if you start to feel angry, don't suppress it or express it. Just notice it, and the effect it's having on your body. Remember that the feeling is only temporary, so you don't want to give it too much power. Use it as an opportunity to grow by exploring what's causing it and then resolving it. Well, that explanation doesn't really do the book justice. But you might be able to get a taste from it, that this is an approach that starts by helping you to become more loving, and then the rest sort of takes care of itself. But she's very specific about how to be loving, and patient, and accepting. There's a lot more to it than you might think. My kids still start to drive me crazy, but now I have a way of turning that into a moment where I can practice what I've learned. Just that switch from feeling emotional, to analytical changes the whole dynamic.

These books changed my life and really frames the task of being a new mom in a quite radical way: your love for yourself and the world must be the same as your love for child. Every Buddhist lesson can be learned and should be learned through the tasks of parenting. Keep it by my bedside. Best addition to my life to help with being a mom. Get it for all moms!

What I like about this book is that the author writes as both a practicing Buddhist and a hands-on mother, and her personal stories bring the two together. She doesn't write in the voice of a Buddhist 'teacher', or as a parenting expert. She shares stories from the trenches of her daily experience, and is very honest about how she feels in the moment. This makes it easy to translate into your own life.

All of the chapters revolve around a question, such as 'Who am I?', 'Where am I going?', 'What does this moment require?' and even 'What can I do about all the housework?' The most meaningful chapter to me personally was 'Who are my children?', which addresses the ideas and projections we often impose on our children, out of concern or denial.

I personally liked this book more than the prior, because it also covers the themes of mindfulness well, but branches out into more psychological issues associated with motherhood and ties them back to Buddhism. I think any parent can benefit from this book.

As a mom who is always looking for ways to better my understanding of my kids, I find this book absolutely amazing. I'm only on the second chapter but i'm blown away by how clear and simple this book is!
you don't have to be a Buddhist to understand it, you don't need to think so much about it. it's just makes so much sense, I want to buy it to all my friends who have kids! I'm only starting the book and I'm already aware and mindful :) of course it needs a bit of practice but it feels so good already I feel more patient, less upset when they misbehave and that makes me handle situations a bit calmer. Unrealistic?? I don't think so. I have faith that anyone who tries will succeed.
The author talks so well about being here, in the now and enjoying our kids, who they are... think about it, those kids that I adore will someday grow up to become a reflection of how our relationship is now. Am I being here for them? Am I giving them enough awareness and attention for them to blossom into the persons them want to be?
All our actions and words now are shaping and creating the future... what kind of future do we want?

Every parent should read this book. Its not a religious book, its a book on how to live a better life and be more present for you children. Wish I had this a few years ago. Anyone could benefit from reading this.
  • Doomredeemer
I loved this book. It is hard being a mom in a world that expects you to be perfect. This book uses basic buddhist ideas to calm you and redirect you to what is important.
  • Uleran
Thank you for writing a book that is relatable, real and inspiring. Not to mention encouraging and thoughtful. I've started my day with it for a few weeks now and it has helped guide my daily parenting.
This book is great! It's a book ALL mothers could benefit from reading... no need to be a Buddhist to gain valuable insight. Its strikingly honest about motherhood and offers strategies that are easy to implement into everyday life.
