Overview

Employing a method of discipline used for children, this Zen guide encourages parents to look inwardly and reflect on their motivations in order to respond to their child's needs from a clearer, kinder perspective. It contains meditative exercises for stressed or disgruntled parents and provides accounts of parent/child interactions. In each one, the self-aware parent describes how they would have reacted before learning to take time-out to discover their own motivations. Then each parent tells how he or she responded to the situation from a clearer, kinder viewpoint.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Time-Out for Parents is the most helpful book I’ve ever found for parents. A brilliant, practical manual based in the most important insight: you can’t give what you haven’t got. The more you recognize and attend to your own needs and self-esteem, the more you will personally grow and heal yourself, and the more you will immediately be present in a healthy and loving way in the life and growth of your children. You owe it to yourself and your kids to incorporate Time-Out into your life and theirs today.”  —John Vasconcellos, former California legislator and founder of the California Task Force on Self-Esteem and Personal and Social Responsibility

Time-Out for Parents focuses on the simple aspect of parenting that enevitably creates the most change—empowering the parent to change in order to affest positive self-esteem in both the parent and the child.”  —Jack Kornfield, Buddhist teacher and author, A Path with Heart
