Buddhism for Parents

Postby wizi » Mon Mar 21, 2011 7:24 am

Some of my fellow meditators are parents of very young children and they wanna know if there could be a place for discussion for parents on this forum? The aim would be to discuss their difficulties in parenting in the light of their buddhist meditation practice. Is there such a space already? I just had a look around and didn't see any.. but would be delighted if the admin can point that out if it's already available. Tx! :anjali:
All beings like yourself are responsible for their own actions. Suffering or happiness is created through one's relationship to experience, not by experience itself. Although I wish only the best for you, I know that your happiness or unhappiness depends on your actions, not on my wishes for you.
May you not be caught in reactivity.

Greetings Wizi,

I would recommend the Theravada For The Modern World forum.

See for example, the following topics...

Buddhism for the 21st Century Parent
viewtopic.php?f=14&t=3301

Attachment and my new baby daughter
viewtopic.php?f=14&t=1622

Metta,
Retro. :)
“I hope, Anuruddha, that you are all living in concord, with mutual appreciation, without disputing, blending like milk and water, viewing each other with kindly eyes.” (MN 31)

What is the final conviction that comes when radical attention is razor-edge sharp? That the object of the mind is mind-made (manomaya). (Ven. Ñāṇananda)

"If you have always believed that everyone should play by the same rules and be judged by the same standards, that would have gotten you labeled a radical 50 years ago, a liberal 25 years ago and a racist today." (Thomas Sowell)
