From Publishers Weekly

Buddhist practitioner Napthali has written an eminently practical book that gives frazzled mothers usable advice and empathy. At a time in their lives when women must balance the pulls of instinct, hormonally charged emotion and familial and social expectations, it is both possible and highly beneficial to practice Buddhism. While Buddhism has a long history of monastic practice and application, its modern expansion into the West has emphasized its relevance to householders. Parenting books are a logical application, though still relatively few in number (e.g. Jacqueline Kramer's Buddha Mom: The Path of Mindful Mothering). In a highly selective culling of teachings, Napthali wisely focuses on maternal mind states and how Buddhism can give a mother insight and literal breathing space before she responds to any parenting situation. The essential Buddhist teaching that all things are impermanent is highly relevant when responding to, for example, a toddler throwing a tantrum in public. The book is perhaps less deep than those written by longtime teachers, as so many Buddhist books are. But precisely because she is not a teacher and is in the midst of mothering, Napthali offers 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.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Refreshing, Life Changing. 7. September 2006
Von Kristin M. Scott - Veröffentlicht auf
IF YOU'RE A MOM, BUY THIS BOOK! I am sceptical of anyone trying to preach an idea to me, and I do not claim to be Buddhist. I just LOVE this book. I checked it out from a local library, but am now purchasing it so I can always have it around. It not only approaches ways to be a calmer mom, but a calmer being in your daily encounter with the world. It has changed how I approach issues, big or small; it's also inspired me to demonstrate the same zen-buddhist coping tools for my children; and it has helped me to stay in the present moment. This book taught me that Buddhism is a spirituality more than a religion. It's all about being responsible for your own feelings and your own perception of the world. My 6-year old is already practicing the Buddhist principle of impermanence - I overheard him telling my 2-year old that his feeling scared about starting preschool would pass, and soon he'd be having fun and forget that he was ever scared. WOW!

5.0 von 5 Sternen A book to savour 15. September 2006
Von Suzanne Spector - Veröffentlicht auf
One of many great things about this book is that it seems to have been designed to be read in little snippets. I find that I am reading 5-10 pages, then cogitating on them for a few days, and then continuing to read.

The author is very honest and refreshing. She tells of her near blissful joy at seeing her young childrens' smiling faces when she picks them up at childcare at the end of the day. Then tells how, at times, her mindset is replaced a few hours later by thoughts of the "I just can't take this mind-numbing drudgery and redundancy of entertaining preschool children for another minute!" variety. If we are honest, we've all harbored those thoughts at one time or another.

On every page, you get the sense that the author is a very real person who can relate to both the best and the stressed in us all.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Thank You Sarah Napthali... 14. November 2006

...for writing this book. There is so much wisdom condensed into its pages. I've highlighted and Post-It tagged so much of this book because there is so much of it I want to remember, so much of it by which I want to live. I've been able to apply some of the techniques in my day-to-day life with my 23 month old daughter and it has been very helpful. I highly recommend this book to any mother or father, or really anyone who wants to better deal with negative emotions, moodiness and stress and be more kind.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A lifeline 17. März 2006
Von Jaka Talbot - Veröffentlicht auf

When I was suffering from postpartum depression, and my mind was filled with crazy thoughts of guilt, worry, and hopelessness, this was a real life saver. This book helped me see everything from a completely different (and more healthy) perspective. I would recommend this book to every new mom, no matter what faith she is.

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.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Essential reading for Moms 7. Februar 2008
Von Julia Flyte - Veröffentlicht auf
I am not a Buddhist, although there is much about the religion that I think can help us in everyday life. I picked up this book more for the tips on parenting than to learn more about Buddhism. For this reason I only skimmed through the initial and final chapters which are more about Buddhism, and concentrated on the segments in the middle.

What I particularly like about this book is that is very upfront about how difficult and lonely parenting can sometimes feel. Sarah Napthali (and the other women whom she quotes) are very frank about the times when they've been angry with their children or partners, when they've felt depressed or anxious or when they just fail to enjoy parenting as much as they'd like to. It's clear that being a Buddhist doesn't mean that you never feel these difficult emotions, just that you work on not giving in to them. Because this book is written in such an unjudgemental and empathetic way, I found it very inspiring. I think this should be required reading for every mother!

My only critique really is that the book is too topline. Although Napthali does give a handy list of techniques to help you parent in a more calm way, I found that some of them were more headlines than how to-s. The book also includes a chapters on topics like concerns about ageing and relationships with your partner and while these were interesting I would have preferred her to spend more time on parenting issues.

Nevertheless, it's a fabulous book to keep on your bedside table. I liked to read a few pages and reflect back at the end of the day.
