Everyday Blessings: The Inner Work of Mindful Parenting
This book is a wonderful read to stay focused and not miss the real intention we parents have in our hearts when we're still. So many issues are raised: too many for me to list. I remember Amanda Soule mentioning this book as a recommendation, and she seems slow to preach too loudly about parenting. I could hear in it the echo of her and Steve's words about their kids and what they need from their parents: "all they need is for you to love them." It's good to remember. This book talks about practical things as regards that message. I hope I'm not blowing it off by not discussing things further, but I definitely consider this one high on the parenting books list.
