Summary
A book that helps parents to pay attention to daily life and the relationships they are creating with their children. We easily fall into the trap of parenting without a real awareness of what we're doing and why we're doing it, invariably using other peoples' ideas and values or outdated child-rearing techniques. A Zen Parent, is not a label or prescriptive way to parent, but a willingness to stay present with what's happening and do the right thing. It's a commitment to an imperfect practice of continual self-awareness so we can show up for our children in an authentic and mindful way. The one thing that can be counted on throughout parenting is change - just when we understand our child's experience or buy the right size clothes, they change and grow. Just when we get comfortable with typical life challenges, the world experiences a global pandemic. Being able to parent and live well requires a willingness to get comfortable with disorder and uncertainty, and even more of a willingness to be introspective and creative to once again find reorder. Structured through the 7 bodily chakras, which are used as a framework for human existence, this book is for parents who want to raise their children in a more self-aware and mindful way, to expand their thinking about who they are and what they want to share with their kids. It's a self-study and reminder to pay attention to daily life and the relationships they are creating with their children. And it's an opportunity to live what they want their kids to learn, to show up as themselves so their kids know they can do the same
