Classic Taoist wisdom applied to the world of parenting, guiding mothers and fathers to meaningful conversations and relationships with their children.

William C. Martin has freshly reinterpreted the Tao Te Ching to speak directly and clearly to the most difficult of modern tasks — parenting. With its combination of free verse and judicious advice, The Parent’s Tao Te Ching addresses the great themes that permeate the Tao and that support loving parent- child relationships: responding without judgment, emulating natural processes, and balancing between doing and being.

“A masterpiece. William Martin captures the essence of what it means to raise a child. Urgently needed, this precious book lifts parenting to new heights.”– Judy Ford, author of Wonderful Ways to Love a Child and Wonderful Ways to Be a Family

About the Author

A native Californian, Bill graduated from the University of California, Berkeley, with a degree in electronic engineering. After four years as a research scientist for the U.S. Navy, Bill returned to graduate school, earning a master’s degree from Western Theological Seminary in Holland, Michigan. He did not find himself fitting within the traditional clergy structure, so, guided by his love of the Tao Te Ching, he began to seek his own way. He has been a student and teacher of the Tao for more than four decades and has published many books on the subject, including the popular, Parent’s Tao Te Ching. Bill now lives in southern Arizona with his spouse, Nancy. He continues to teach classes and work with private students.
