Mindful Parenting

Parenting can be one of the most challenging roles of our lives—yet few of us walk into it having the inner resources and skill sets it demands. What if it were possible to learn new skills that would help to manage the stress of parenting, better care for our own well-being, foster emotional connection, and cultivate a child’s capacity for self-reflection?

Being a mindful parent means living with greater awareness of our moment-to-moment experience while cultivating a nonjudgmental acceptance of ourselves and our children.

Mindfulness practices can be a great source of refuge while managing the challenges of modern-day parenting. Over thirty years of research has empirically shown that developing the skills of mindfulness can reduce stress and anxiety, improve well-being, increase relationship satisfaction, adaptability, empathy, and compassion.

Mindful parenting classes and workshops teach the practices and key principles of mindfulness, communication techniques that foster deep listening and skillful responding, and strategies that can help children learn to self-regulate and reflect while navigating their own life experiences.
