A must read book for mothers
If you could sum up Buddhism for Mothers in three words, what would they be?
A different approach to motherhood and life
What other book might you compare Buddhism for Mothers to, and why?
I have read many many books on gentle parenting and parenting in general, but no other book has had such a great effect on me. It helped me to enjoy life, kids, even my kids trantrums are now a moment to learn and not to get nervous as I did before. I don't know why I didnt know about this book when I was pregnat!
Which character – as performed by Rebecca Macauley – was your favourite?
Neutral calm voice.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
I just heard it when taking my kids for a walk in the buggy. It was more like a spa session hearing this book!
Any additional comments?
Is not a religious book, it shows you how to approach life in a more mindfull and loving way.

What made the experience of listening to Buddhism for Mothers the most enjoyable?
I find this book helpful. I saw that one reviewer called it negative. I don't see it that way and in fact, to say that may actually be evidence that one missed the point of the book. It's very calming, realistic and helpful. The author acknowledges many of the challenges of parenthood (as opposed to using motherhood only because this advice is equally good for fathers.) I'd highly recommend this book and have already done so to several friends and family members. It's definitely on the "self-help" train. So, be prepared for that approach.

this will forever be my go to book when I feel the overwhelming demands of being a mother. I feel I'm a better person and parent after listening, and Sarah spoke the truth of the frustrations of being a parent with my solutions on how to refocus and be mindful.
