Mindfulness for Parents (6 week Online Course)
You are not alone.
If you feel like you are sometimes failing as a parent. If you feel like you yell at your kids more than you ever thought you would. If you just don't know how to get your kid to listen or how to be a parent without losing your shit. If you feel like you are losing your identity at times because all you do is schlep the kids to practices and buy groceries.
This course is here for you.
Mindfulness for parents offers real-world, practical tools for self-care, communication, and dealing with big emotions (yours & theirs).
You'll walk away with tools for:
- how to take care of yourself even when everything feels like chaos
- how to make mindfulness fit with your life and your family
- how to check your own nervous system before losing it when your kid is freaking out, hurt, or otherwise dysregulated
- how to use your body as a resting point when your mind is going a mile a minute
In this course you will get:
- Guided meditations and practices to build your own mindful awareness, presence, and resilience
- Opportunities to connect & share/brainstorm with other parents
- Tools for recognizing and managing expectations
- Technique and suggestions for positive discipline (letting go of the yelling and finding solutions that work)
- Self-care techniques
