The Parent’s Tao Te Ching: Ancient Advice for Modern Parents
by William Martin
“I give all my friends with children The parent’s Tao Te Ching– a reminder of what matters when raising little ones” – Oprah Winfrey
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
