Overview

This anthology explores the challenges and rewards of teaching Buddhist values and meditation practice to children

The family practice of such Buddhist values as compassion and self-reflection has the potential to guide and empower children and parents, as well as foster community. With essays, poems, stories, and songs, Buddhist parents touch on a variety of topics: child rearing as a valid and rich spiritual path, Buddhist holiday ceremonies for kids, sample education programs, and ways to deepen understanding between parents and children.

When Buddhists become parents, they sometimes encounter conflicts between their practice and the demands of childrearing. How can time be found to meditate? The 155 essays, poems, and stories in this book will be of value both to Buddhist parents seeking answers and non-Buddhists who want to combine a sense of spirituality with everyday activities regarding children. 20 line drawings.

    EXCELLENT FOR TEACHING BUDDHISM TO OUR KIDS

    I believe this is the only book needed for teaching our values to our children in a society in which they're bombarded by Christian values and influences. I'm using this as a guide book to teach my 4 yr old living in the 'Bible Belt', with no buddhist in site...except us! This will help build up her self-esteem, having pride in her beliefs, and to simplify ways in which we can meditate together.
