The Parent's Tao Te Ching: Ancient Advice for Modern Parents
William Martin wrote this amazing book. I saw a page on a facebook meme passed around from amazed person to person and decided to find the source and read it. It's not long at all. Martin took what Lao Tzu taught in the Tao Te Ching and set it into simple words/verse on the area of parenting. The actual Tao Te Ching is super simple, and Martin didn't want to take away the essence by making it a typical theory/practice/parenting book. For a parenting book, this one is very short/simple. There's tons of meat to it though. I could feel the transformative aspects almost coming off the page, wow. It felt a little like the effects of meditation.
