Descriere: WANT A PEACEFUL HOME? If you're like most parents, what you want right now is pretty simple: an effective plan for getting your kids to behave and be happy. You're probably looking for something else as well - something a little deeper. Like many other parents all over the world, you want to know you're doing a good job. You want to feel like you can handle anything. You want to feel confident, competent, and hopeful for the future, for both your kids and yourself. (Oh, and along the way, you'd like a little peace, quiet, and respect as well.) All of the above are possible, even probable, if you can learn to become "Screamfree." You can have the structured, rewarding home life you've always craved, with respectful kids who are responsible for their own actions. All you have to do is learn to pause, so you can respond more and react less. It really is that simple. Once you learn to control your own emotions and behavior, your children will soon learn how to control theirs. Now is your chance to join thousands of other parents in a movement of calmer parenting. This practical, effective guide for parents with kids of all ages introduces proven principles for overcoming the stress and anxiety of parenting, forged in the personal trenches of countless Screamfree families. The new, revised edition includes updated practical applications of the foundational ScreamFree principles, a new chapter on parenting in the digital age, and a comprehensive Q&A section dealing with everything from behavioral problems to allowances and chores. A peaceful home is closer than you think.

A guide to the Tao te Ching and Taoism covering what it teaches and how it interacts with other areas of Buddhism. -- The book appeals to both academic readers and individual seekers, both of whom buy books in large numbers. -- Complements series coverage of related topics such as The Complete Idiot's Guide "RM" to Buddhism, The Complete Idiot's Guide "RM" to Zen Living, The Complete Idiot's Guide "RM" to Tai Chi and QiGong, and The Complete Idiot's Guide "RM" to the I Ching. While many know that Taosim is somehow connected to Buddhism, but they may not understand it's far-reaching influence on Eastern philosophy today. Without Taoism, many believe Buddhism would never have caught on -- concepts of simplicity and balance come to us from the mixing of Chinese Taoism and Buddhism. The Complete Idiot's Guide "RM" to Taoism continues this tradition in helping people understand the history of Taoism, the interpretations of the Tao te Ching and how to Taoism touches our daily life.

Explores the relationship between Jewish and Buddhist traditions and discusses the reasons why some Jews are drawn to Buddhism and become practicing Buddhists.
This engaging contemplation of maturity addresses the long neglected topic of what it means to grow up, and provides a hands-on guide for skilfully navigating the demands of our adult lives. Growing up happens whether we like it or not, but maturity must be cultivated. Challenged to consider his own sense of maturity while mentoring a group of teenage boys, Fischer began to investigate our preconceptions about what it means to be "an adult" and shows how crucial true maturity is to leading an engaged, fulfilled life. Taking Our Places details the marks of a mature person and shows how these attributes can help alleviate our suffering and enrich our relationships. Discussing such qualities as awareness, responsibility, humour, acceptance, and humility, Fischer brings a fresh and at times surprising new perspective that can turn old ideas on their heads and reinvigorate our understanding of what it means to be mature.
