Crouching Father, Hidden Toddle (Hardback)

Unavailable. No reason given.


"Crouching Father, Hidden Toddler" humorously applies the soothing wisdom of the Tao to the chaos and confusion of new fatherhood. Celebrated columnist and father of two, C.W. Nevius examines the challenges that plague first-time fathers - from baby-drool stains on business suits to what to do with a dirty nappy. Solutions to these predicaments come in the form of insights borrowed from Buddhism, the author's wry observations of his own children, and 1960's kung fu movies. New dads might try such novel techniques as finding a learned sensei to guide them (ie, a parent of children who don't bite) or enlisting Samurai Sleep Training (wherein a baby's sleeping pattern is reversed to better accommodate evening TV). "Crouching Father, Hidden Toddler" is required reading for those who want to rear their kids with perspective and a sense of humour.
