Reviews - What do customers think about Meditations for Mothers of Toddlers?
Terrible Twos.. Jun 15, 2007
I loved the toddler years...my child became her own person. Yet with that development came a lot of "no" and "mine" behaviors. Beth's book helped soothe my nerves and reassure me during this challenging phase of motherhood. She reminded me of the importance of this stage of development, not only for my child, but for me as a mother. Honestly, there are a lot of parallels between the toddler and teen years. Beth's book helped me with both.
Peaceful Parenting Jun 4, 2007
As the mother of five children, I have found that you need to be a different parent to each child due to the individual qualities they each possess. There is no 'one size fits all'. That is why I have appreciated this book so much. Each time I read through a meditation, it encourages me to apply my inner wisdom to suit the challenges arising from that paticular child's situation. In essence, it is a new book each time I pick it up. We all need a calming voice of reason when we are challenged by toddler behavior on a daily basis. This book provides that voice.
Renews the Love of Parenting May 10, 2007
This book allows you to take the time to stop for a short moment and reflect on the importance of parenting. One short paragraph a day will renew your love of parenting and your spirit. The book is filled with so many valuable insights and quotes to help you meet the everyday challenges of parenthood. I read this book when my oldest son was a toddler and I have been reading it again now that he is a teenager!! This book helps on all levels of parenting and I would love to see a sequel!!
A Great Comfort Feb 5, 2003
Motherhood is so busy, sometimes I could only read one wonderful page a day. That was comfort enough.
Good for busy moms! Mar 22, 2000
This book is a real winner. As a mother of nineteen month old twins, I do not have a lot of time on my hands, however, I am always in need of a little inspiration. The author combines pithy quotations with great, short, reflective writing. It is easy to pick up and set down at a moment's notice, since each thought is roughly one pargraph in length. I have passed it along to several of my friends and am hoping for a sequel!
