This review is based on an audiobook that I received. It is an honest review and the complimentary receipt of it in no way affected my review or rating.
'Mindful Parenting: The Timeless Art of Raising Kids' by Alice Walker is a selflearning book.
This audiobook is about 1hour long that informatical by nature.
I'm new to the narrator Sri Gordon. She has a nice voice and her narration is excellent. She is easy to listen to and his perfectly paced reading. The sound quality is good. it was nice and clear. Sri Gordon her performance overall greatly adds to the enjoyment of the book. Because I sometimes drifted away. But She always brought me back to what she was telling me.
This audiobook had very good basic information about "Mindfulness".
In the beginning of the book Alice Walker explained where the therm Mindfulness came from and what she think this means.
Also she tells about the history of mindful thinking and the people that have promoted it
The subject matter, what I think is "Mindful Parenting" covered was very interesting, but it was only about half the time of the book. I would have like more material about Mindful Parenting itself.
I or the audience could have benefited more by talking about the specific parenting method and giving examples.
Talking about the people who have used and/or brought it to America could be the extra or the bonus of this audiobook. If you want more background information.
I really liked the history of where the method "Mindfulness" came from. I find this very interesting. I also think that that part was necessary to explain what "Mindful Partenting" and "Mindfullness" have in common and it probably needed to understand the thread of the story.
After some consideration I would recommend this audiobook to parents or parents to be, who wants to know more about "Minderful Parenting". Because this audiobook is not really a guide about how to do things. But more like inspiration for yourself. So you could fit this in your own situation.
I received this audiobook in exchange for an honest review
This had good basic information on mindfulness. I like these little mindfulness audios because I find them to be great mind cleansers, as well as reminders. They are like daily meditations or time to let go of the day to day and re-center. The only thing I was confused about was the mindful parenting title. It speaks more of mindfulness in general and then a debate on the idea of mindfulness parenting causing parents stress, but not really about actual mindful parenting. But, otherwise it has interesting things to say about mindfulness.
