Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"The pages of this book invite us to discover a way of parenting in the present moment that helps us see our children for who they are and ourselves with greater awareness. Myla and Jon Kabat-Zinn show us a wise path that leads to deep connection, empathy, and love both for our children and ourselves. Their book is a treasure, especially for these fast-paced, accelerating times when many of us seek more balance and wholeness in our lives and relationships."—Nancy Carlsson-Paige, author of Taking Back Childhood: A Proven Roadmap for Raising Confident, Creative, Compassionate Kids.

"The Kabat-Zinns' book is a gift and a blessing, filled with wise counsel for stepping wholeheartedly into the parenting journey. I urge parents to take refuge in this beautiful book, and to be inspired to embrace each day as an opportunity for learning, growing, and loving more deeply."—Susan Stiffelman, author of Parenting without Power Struggles: Raising Joyful, Resilient Kids While Staying Cool, Calm, and Connected

"Myla and Jon Kabat-Zinn are pioneers in cultivating the inner clarity that creates the parental presence our children of any age need to become securely attached. Their personal and professional insights in this accessible, story-filled classic volume enable us to become the kind of parent we want to be-open, attuned, flexible, and compassionate to our children and to ourselves. This revised and updated edition of the original source for 'mindful parenting' gives us new guidance to create the life of love our children deserve. Soak in their words of wisdom and everyone will benefit!"—Daniel J. Siegel, M.D., author of Brainstorm: The Power and Purpose of the Teenage Brain

    Every parent should read it

    This book taught me how to stop losing my temper with my kids. I shudder to think how it would have been if I hadn't read it. Worth every penny.

    read over and over

    This is by far the best parenting book I have encountered. Practical, not mystical --you don't need to be highly spiritual to learn from it. I wish my parents had read this book. I have read this book, from cover to cover, more than once. I can't say that about any other parenting book.

    Mindful Parenting is the answer

    This book confirms the basic techniques I used in rasing my child - who is now a well adjusted adult. In addition I taught my child about a God unlike the God I was raised with. The concepts needed to accomplish the latter, can be found in the book An Encounter With A Prophet or as a second choice Conversations With God
