Mothering with Courage: The Mindful Approach to Becoming a Mom Who Listens More, Worries Less, and Loves Deeply
In the busy life of a parent, it may seem like self-reflection is a bit of a luxury; who has time to really think about how we parent–and why–when lost in the daily crush? Therapist Bonnie Compton, however, believes it’s important we find the time to do just that. Self-reflection is perhaps the ultimate form of mindfulness, and taking the time to really think about our lives as parents can make a huge difference in the way we relate to our children, our spouses, and even ourselves. Her book Mothering With Courage is packed with information, stories, quotes, and more to get readers really thinking about their parenting styles. Each chapter contains a concise summary, making it easy to absorb this info in small bites, but readers will benefit even more if they take the time to read through every page of this deceptively slim book. Readers will also love the journaling exercises sprinkled throughout every chapter; these writing prompts will help parents determine what’s working for them…and what’s not. This is a great book that is sure to inspire parents to work on themselves.
