This is part two of a four-part training. Mindful or conscious parenting is the application of mindfulness practice to the art of parenting. In a world that is fast-paced, stressful and demanding, this approach guides parents to be self-aware, present and responsive to our children instead of distracted, controlling and reactive. A mindful parent is imperfect, vulnerable, and willing to learn from our children, and skillfully balances boundaries with love and compassion. By transforming ourselves as parents, we empower our children to be their authentic selves and find their own path to fulfillment and success.
Part 2 – Reactive vs Responsive Parent
In session two, we dive deeper into understanding how mindful awareness practices (MAPs) build resilience in the family. We unpack stress and how we can use these tools to be more self-aware, less reactive and more responsive our children, and to prioritize self-care.
