Buddhist Parenting Book Review

buddhist parenting book

A recent viral hit on the internet is the Buddhist Parenting Book by Fiona Giles. I’ve seen it described as “a parenting manual for the spiritual parent.” That sounds like a pretty tall claim, but the book does serve its purpose. This article will take a look at the book and see how it can benefit Buddhist parents.

First, let’s get to the good stuff. The book has chapters on how to be a parent in general and then chapters on Buddhist parenting. The author begins with a short story about her own parents and then goes into the meat of the book in the second chapter. She starts out as a “curious kid” who is interested in all aspects of her life. But her interests seem to transform when her father died and she is thrust into an entirely new environment.

A Philosophical Way

The chapters of the book deal with Buddhist parenting in a philosophical way. The first chapter deals with death and dying. It includes a quote by Buddha regarding the coming of death and explains that when a parent dies their children also die. This serves as a good introduction to the philosophy of death and dying.

The next few chapters deal with the four noble truths that form the foundation of Buddhism. They are mindfulness, serenity, contentment, and wisdom. These four noble truths are important in developing a good and meaningful relationship with your child. One chapter focuses on teaching these noble truths to children.

Growing Spiritually And Emotionally

Background pattern

The book talks about how parents must be proactive in making sure that their children are growing spiritually and emotionally. The authors do not mince their words, and they definitely express their displeasure at parents who refuse to do this. They remind parents that a big part of being a parent is putting on the right shoes. They also mention that it’s important to have compassion and follow the teachings of Buddhism.

Parents must be spiritual and learn to listen to their child’s voice. Another interesting aspect of this parenting book is that it provides a script for parenting. If you’re not familiar with the script, then it provides some advice on how to be a good parent. In the script, the authors recommend that parents should not assume that their child will make the decisions for them. They also advise that parents find ways to support their child and make them feel comfortable about their decisions.

Information In The Book

There are many other helpful tips and information in the book. It provides an excellent outline on what parenting is all about. It also provides information on how to become a good parent from parents who have been through the process before. It talks about how to talk to children and kids to make them want to do good things. It also talks about how to create meaningful family relationships.

This is an excellent Buddhist parenting book and it is recommended by many experts. It is designed to help parents have a better understanding of Buddhism. Because of the emphasis on compassion and listening to your child, this book has received many positive reviews. If you are interested in learning more about parenting, Buddhist parenting books are the best place to start.

Improve Their Parenting Skills

The book will give parents several different methods that they can use to improve their parenting skills. One method that the author advocates is called the Five Animal Strategy. This is based on the Chinese concept of yin and yang, which are used to explain the relationship between the physical body, mind, and spirit or life force within us. According to this strategy, positive energies can flow freely through any blocked energy pathways (when put in writing, this is called a “boundary”). If you improve your parenting skills in this way, you will increase your happiness, improve your spiritual well-being, and improve the quality of your parenting.

The authors also encourage parents to be present with their children when they are learning. They should not only be present when learning new things, but they should also spend time with their children and teach them about life and religion. When parents are present, their children will be more likely to take lessons seriously. This is also a great way to help parents develop trust with each other.

Final Words

It is also useful to parents who want to learn about Buddhism but are not certain if they could ever become a Buddhist.
