Wasn't sure where to post this... feel free to "teleport" it. Just a recommendation for the book "Buddhism for Mothers of Young Children":

Now, obviously, I am not a mother :mrgreen:
My wife got this book, in part to help her understand my practice, and in part because our little ones can be quite the handful! Funny thing is, I actually read through the book before she got a chance to, and I can say that it is just as useful for fathers or caretakers of any kind. All of her writing is geared to the actual nitty-gritty day-to-day rearing of children, and her application of Buddhist principles to this is excellent (imho).
This is actually the 2nd of three books she's written, each one corresponding to the increasing age of her children and the new challenges. In this one, if I remember correctly her kids are 2 and 6.
Anyway, just thought I'd pass along this recommendation. Using Jundo's scheme, I give this book 4/5 Buddhas!
