Reviews by Amazon.com – Applying the lessons of everyday mindfulness to parenting is no easy task–especially in our schedule-driven culture. Myla and Jon Kabat-Zinn articulate the knowledge that many parents are beginning to understand in their hearts: that less is often more with children. That all parents, no matter how spiritually evolved, lose it sometimes. That a quiet, dreamy bath can cultivate just as much creativity as after school art lessons. And renewal of energy for both parent and child often comes from the silent cuddle on the sofa. Even non-parents will benefit from this primer on how to live the blessed life.
