THE AUTHOR IS THE FOUNDER OF THE MINDFUL PARENTING
Sometimes being a parent seems to consist of little more than an endless to-do list: collecting your children from the day-care centre or school, taking them to (sports) practice, arranging babysitters, bathing them and putting them to bed. As a parent, you often feel trapped in a straitjacket of tasks that must be completed, which keeps you from spending quality time with your child.
Psychotherapist Susan Bögels is the founder of the Mindful Parenting method and has been giving courses in it for many years. For the first time she shares her method with a wider audience, while also drawing from her own experiences as a mother. In an accessible manner, Bögels shows you how to find a balance between ‘doing mode’ and ‘being mode’ when interacting with your children. She explains how to deal with stress, conflict and guilt, and how to cultivate conscious and unbiased attention in a simple way. The combination of theory and exercises that fit easily into everyday life makes this book an ideal self-help course in mindful parenting.
