Mindful Parenting



What is mindful parenting? It is a way for parents to connect to and have more compassion and understanding with their child(ren).
Mindfulness is deliberate awareness to the present moment with qualities of acceptance, non-judgment, curiosity, and observation. Mindful Parenting is the practice of intentionally bringing purposeful awareness to everyday parenting situations in order to cultivate and deepen the parent-child connection.
Children who grow feeling connected to their parents:
*Have healthy self-esteem
*Do better in school
*Choose healthy relationships
*Feel comfortable around adults
*Explore and try new things
*Have an easier time with change
*Develop a positive self-concept
 In other words, the parent-child connection grows happy children!
