Finding peace while raising children
There is no one-size-fits-all approach to parenting. There is no single answer to strictness vs. leniency, screens vs. no screens or any other parenting question that you could set forth. Now, the editors of Parents magazine present a refreshing new approach to parenting through mindfulness in a new special edition - The Mindful Life. As a parenting strategy, mindfulness is more philosophy than formula. It urges us to be non-judgmental, not reactive; to listen, not rail; and to see the world through our children's eyes. Presented in three distinct sections "Togetherness, Present Parenting and Thoughtful Practices" The Mindful Life emphasizes family harmony, parenting in a Facebook world, teaching generosity, 13 ways to get closer to your kids and much more. The Mindful Life will help you embrace mindfulness from playtime to bedtime and every time in between, and can help you find joy and peace in an often-hectic world, leading to a happier, calmer you.
