Buddhism for Mothers of Schoolchildren by Sarah Napthali


Buddhism For MothersTitle:Buddhism for Mothers of Schoolchildren: Finding Calm in the Chaos of the School Years (Paperback)
Author:Sarah Napthali
Price: Rs. 1,073

This is one book that I would like to share with parents not only mothers. However, mothers will find it more helpful. Parenting is a challenging task where a parent needs to grow with the child. Here is a book which defines the challenges and offers solutions based on the sound principles of Buddhist philosophy.

The subtitle of the book is, ‘Finding Calm in the Chaos of the School Years’ and says all.  If you are looking for a practical guide on parenting, you would be disappointed. This book has no diet-charts, weight/height charts or milestones to refer. However, it is about becoming a more ‘mindful’ mother and how to be a mother and find time to be an individual without the feeling of guilt or frustration.

When you run through days, weeks, months, year after year, packing lunch boxes, cooking, teaching, picking, dropping the children, life becomes drudgery.  Sarah teaches you to find calm, peace and happiness, in the midst of all the chaos of the school going years. She believes and endorses that these states are not as elusive as they seem. These are scattered throughout those lovely moments throughout the day and need to be mindfully experienced.

Sarah Napthali a mother to two boys who thoroughly understands the challenges faced by mothers as caretakers, nurturers and also as individuals.
She is a gifted writer, and her prose flows smoothly like a graceful river. Her insights are detailed and expressed fluently with real-life situations.

This is must buy for all parents, especially stressed-out mothers who feel almost hopeless at times.
