SHARE YOUR WISDOM How does Buddhism inform your parenting? Is Buddhism helping you keep up your hope? Send your answer and location to email@example.com My two sons are twelve and fourteen, and I have needed to practice nonattachment as I experience their evolution. I used to struggle with the perspective that our children are not ours. My heart wants them to stay small forever. So my practice, every day, is to release them into their day with trust and understanding of the courageous steps they take into the unknown and to be present with them each time they return, revealing more of themselves. —Michelle Visser, Laramie, Wyoming When my kids’ lives are messed up, it’s not my fault. When my kids achieve greatness, it’s not to my credit. —Ann Phillips Seide , Thousand Oaks, California 1. At wit’s end, breathe and ask, “What now?” Listen to what you hear. 2. Instill trust in your infant by responding to their needs quickly and with an even mind. 3. Being present for your toddler creates a field of trust for the teen years. 4. When there is no alternative but to trust your teen, trust them. 5. When your adult child faces difficulties, show that you have confidence in their ability to get through to the other side. —Peggy Walsh Craig To find the balance in being compassionately neglectful. Our children share genes and some karma, but they are their own people. —Chris Billows, Winnipeg Giving birth, women are told to breathe. But after our child is born we hold our breath, always awaiting the next step and missing the present moment. We take pictures of what we did not fully experience, acting as a diary of missed moments. Giving birth, we breathe life out of our bodies and into unique new lives that we love and care for so much that we forget about ourselves. We need to take time to breathe for ourselves, slowly and mindfully. —Simona Noaghiul-Yland, New York I ask myself regularly whether or not the lesson I try to teach my son is to fit into societal norms or to keep him safe and happy. —Travis Champion, Montreal Buddhist practice helps me think before I say something and, if I get angry, I can see the anger, breathe, and let go. —Sam Taylor LION’S ROAR | JANUARY 2019 23
