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?
I'm so glad I read this book when my son was only a few months old, I'm sure I'll be able to deal with him in a more calm and patient way for the rest of his life.
My favorite lesson from this book: treat every person and every situation with gentleness, patience, and persistence. But remember, treat YOURSELF with gentleness and patience too. Being a new mom is hard enough without beating ourselves up about it.
