What happened to the good old days when parenting was easy?
In The Mindful Mom, Michelle Lim-Chua encourages young parents to slow down and take a more simple and natural approach to parenting. Written especially for young Asian parents, she challenges readers to put aside the “kiasu” culture and focus on the beautiful journey of raising a child. From pregnancy and confinement to what to pack for the baby’s first flight, this guide shows parents how to make conscious, purposeful, healthy and safe choices for their families. New mothers will appreciate her honest parenting philosophy that isn’t about achieving “perfection” but rather being present and mindful about every moment with their babies.
