Forty Things I Wish I'd Told My Kids : Mindful Messages about Success, Happiness, Leather, Pickles, and the Use and Misuse of Imagination
by John Allcock


Overview - 40 Things I Wish I'd Told My Kids is about being a successful human being and living a happier, more meaningful life. It contains the important things parents wish they had been able to teach their kids, but couldn't -- because they never learned them, or only learned them later in life. These include:
  • Don't be ruled by the tyranny of events
  • The belief that happiness comes from getting what we want is false
  • Pain is unavoidable; suffering is optional
  • We live in a sea of uncertainty -- but we already know how to swim
  • Don't treat the present moment like it's a shabby motel room
    40 Things I Wish I'd Told My Kids brings mindfulness to the widest possible audience -- by presenting it not as special and exotic, but as practical, simple, down-to-Earth principles for living that every parent wants their kids to know
