You don't need to be a Buddhist, or even religious, to enjoy this wonderful book. Among other things it shows us how to be fully present when we are with our children. Something that is so hard for us to do in this age of distraction.
Not an easy path to follow, but definitely one worth exploring. All about seeing your child for who they really are and what they are really looking for, with a sense of respect and courage. About being willing to explore unresolved issues within oneself that parenting inevitably triggers, rather than blindly reacting to them in our interactions with our kids. Many of the ideas are similar to those in How to Talk to So Kids Will Listen, and Listen so Kids Will Talk, but go much deeper.
