Classic Taoist wisdom applied to the world of parenting, guiding mothers and fathers to meaningful conversations and relationships with their children. William C. Martin has freshly reinterpreted the Tao Te Ching to speak directly and clearly to the most difficult of modern tasks-- parenting. With its combination of free verse and judicious advice, The Parent's Tao Te Ching addresses the great themes that permeate the Tao and that support loving parent- child relationships: responding without judgment, emulating natural processes, and balancing between doing and being. "A masterpiece. William Martin captures the essence of what it means to raise a child. Urgently needed, this precious book lifts parenting to new heights."--Judy Ford, author of Wonderful Ways to Love a Child and Wonderful Ways to Be a Family
Bought this book upon recommendation. It is indeed a delightful book. A gentle reminder to me as a mother on parenting my kid not based on the world's standards but by his very own.
