Mountains have some qualities we can do well with as parents. They are very grounded and still; and however, the weather around the mountain is – stormy, sunny, cloudy, windy – the mountain remains unchanged. It affronts all these situations with equanimity. A quality we can appreciate in parenting. So, sit down from time to time, become present and visualise a mountain (one you know, or you imagine one) and try to bring this image into your body.
