Raising school children is a radically different experience from tending children under the age of five. With children at school, life is both easier and harder and there are very different challenges on the horizon—mothers are often thinking of going back to work, or juggling work–life balance issues. They are questioning what they want out of life, how they want to interact with the world, and creating new definitions for themselves. Children are more demanding too, asking questions, testing boundaries, and beginning to define themselves as separate from their parents. Sarah Napthali explores the distinct issues arising from this phase of motherhood and how Buddhism can play a role in providing answers and direction, in her usual warm, wise, inclusive, and accessible style.

About the Author:

Sarah Napthali is a mother of two who tries to apply Buddhist teachings in her daily life. Her working life has ranged from teaching English as a Second Language and corporate training, to human rights activism and interpreting. She is the author of Buddhism for Mothers and Buddhism for Mothers with Young Children.

Review:

"An eminently practical book that gives frazzled mothers usable advice and empathy . . . the approachable and authentic perspective of a rank-and-file practitioner who lives the techniques and situations she writes about. This book will be most useful for mothers of young children, providing them spiritual resources at a life stage when women need all the help they can get."  —Publishers Weekly on Buddhism for Mothers

"The author guides busy women in the art of transforming their lives in the midst of chaos."  —Library Journal on Buddhism for Mothers

“A lovely book for anyone that wants to become more present in their parenting.”  —AmericanBuddhist.net on Buddhism for Mothers of Young Children

“Written in a clear and engaging style, this warm and simple meditation facilitates parenting with awareness, purpose and love.”  —Buddha Torrents on Buddhism for Mothers of Young Children
