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

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

Metta,
Retro. :)
Through corruption of the Dhamma comes corruption of the discipline, and from corruption of the discipline comes corruption of the Dhamma. This is the first future danger as yet unarisen that will arise in the future. You should recognize it and make an effort to prevent it. (AN 5.79)

Neither traceable in the Discourses nor verifiable by the Discipline, one must conclude thus: 'Certainly, this is not the Blessed One's utterance; this has been misunderstood by that bhikkhu — or by that community, or by those elders, or by that elder.' In that way, bhikkhus, you should reject it. (DN 16)
