Everyday Blessings: The Inner Work of Mindful Parenting
The bestselling author of the million-copy bestseller Wherever You Go, There You Are and Full Catastrophe Living joins forces with his wife, Myla, in this revised edition of their groundbreaking book about mindfulness in parenting children of all ages.
Updated with new material -- including an all new introduction and expanded practices in the epilogue -- Everyday Blessings remains one of the few books on parenting that embraces the emotional, intuitive, and deeply personal experience of being a parent, applying the groundbreaking "mind/body connection" expertise from global mindfulness leader, Jon Kabat-Zinn and his wife, Myla Kabat-Zinn.
Mindfulness is a way of living and there is increasing scientific evidence of its value for optimal health and well-being. A new field in psychology is devoted to mindful parenting, and mindfulness is being increasingly integrated into K-12 education. There has never been a better time for cultivating greater mindfulness in parenting and in family life.

Not a book to teach parenting, thank goodness. A book that helps you to have respect and compassion for yourself and you co-parenting partners - and your children, at whatever age they are.

But ultimately this book challenges you to make decisions about how you parent based on the reality of who you are and who your child is rather than based on a formula that is bound to fail you at some point. A book for parenting through the whole span of a child-parent relationship -and that is a lifetime.
