Event description

Description

The basis of mindful parenting strategies is mindfulness, which is a form of meditation that has been practiced for centuries. More recently, mindfulness has been used as an evidence based treatment for mental health and chronic illnesses. Mindful parenting involves tuning into and feeling compassion and empathy for your own emotions and those of your child. Mindful parenting strategies teaches skills and nurtures connections in our children’s brains that
will help them regulate their thoughts and behaviours.

Workshop objectives:

• appreciate the value of a mindful approach to parenting
• learn how to help your child to do their best in the moment
• make the most of opportunities to connect with your child
