Interview with Sarah Napthali, author of Buddhism for Mothers (The Green Parent)

Green Parent Dec 2015

The December/ January issue of The Green Parent magazine includes the latest in my series of interviews with parenting experts.

I spoke to Sarah Napthali, author of Buddhism for Mothers, about how even the most time-poor parent can find peace and self-acceptance amid a busy family life.

I feel as though the biggest enemies to a mother’s mental health are self-criticism, harsh self-judgement and the habit of beating yourself up. Practising self-compassion guards against these. For me, it is a commitment to always treat myself as a kind friend would and to shine some of the unconditional love I feel for my children onto myself.
