Sometimes being a parent can seem like one long to-do list: taking the children to and from school and clubs, arranging babysitters, feeding them and putting them to bed. Parents often feel trapped in a straitjacket of routine tasks, all of which prevent them spending quality time with their family. Professor Susan Bögels is the developer of the Mindful Parenting method, and has been training parents in mindfulness for over twenty years. Now, she shares both her expertise and her own experiences as a mother and child with a general audience for the first time. An inspirational self-help book for busy parents, Mindful Parenting: Finding Space To Be – In a World of To-Do shows how we can all find a balance between a ‘doing mode’ and a ‘being mode’ when interacting with our children. Chiefly, it helps readers to deal differently with parenting stress by noticing automatic patterns of reacting to their children, and by taking better care of themselves as parents. The book also explains how to deal with stress, conflict and guilt, and how to cultivate conscious, unbiased attention in a simple way. Together, the chapters form an 11-week self-help course in mindful parenting, supported by practical exercises and guided audio meditations.
