Hi, folks. Thanks to all for your kind welcome.

I am the doting parent of a five-year-old son. Sometimes I've wondered if there are good "Buddhist books" specifically on parenting (or should I run in the opposite direction?!). Also, lately my son has started asking what meditation is and how it's done. He sometimes comes into the room when I'm meditating and imitates my body position. At such a tender age, I'm not sure the best way to answer, both in an age-appropriate manner and in such a way that leaves room for him to find his OWN answers, as his questions continue to develop. Much as I value my practice of Buddhism, I don't wish to turn him into a little Buddhist!

Thoughts anyone?
