Applying the ancient yet timeless 81 principles of Taoism to parenting, The Tao Of Parenting features instructive anecdotes from four families to demonstrate how Taoist teachings help parents raise good, healthy children. The stories are just as diverse as the families who tell them (a blended family featuring children from separate marriages, a couple with different cultural and ethical backgrounds, a single parent of twin boys, and a couple with different parenting techniques learning to compromise).Some of the Taoist principles used by these families include:
*Do Not Think of Self. Shows the rewards parents receive by making their children their number one priority.
*The material is fleeting, the spiritual is everlasting. Demonstrates the rewards of caring for those in need.
*Do Not Be Authoritarian. Shows how to foster self-reliance and responsibility in children while supporting their efforts, rather than controlling their every move.
*Follow the middle road; it is the heart of knowing. Offers the benefits of parents being neither too permissive or too strict, but rather adjusting the rules for each child and each circumstance.
There are many more valuable lessons in this special book which can be used by parents of all faiths to help guide their lives and those of their children.
