I am a Buddhist parent with children and having experienced some difficult times during (some of ) their teenage years I decided to start this blog in the hope of helping others in similar situations.
Some teenagers (and parents) sail through these years relatively unscathed, while others may encounter extreme difficulties.
The simple teachings of Modern Buddhism can help both non-Buddhists and Buddhists alike, survive what can be turbulent times and emerge on “the other side” as a more positive,peaceful and happy person with sanity intact!
This blog is not intended to provide medical advice or parenting skills, but is a sharing of techniques that have helped me cope with almost overwhelming situations. (So far, so good!)
I am by no means an expert and can only share what I know to work from my own experience.
Some articles may initially be brief with more in depth detail about the topic later.
Good Luck! x
