Mindful & Compassionate Parenting 2-Day Workshop
November 19, 2016 - November 20, 2016$299.00
So often the demands of life affect our ability to practice patience and deep listening with our children, which can impact the quality of the parent/child relationship. This inattention can contribute to frustration and confusion for both parent and child. By identifying reactive patterns and exploring options for attending to the unplanned stressors in our lives, we can improve our ability to respond skillfully to our own needs and the needs of our children.
This two-day core skills training introduces participants to the foundations of Mindfulness & Self-Compassion in the context of parenting. In addition, the adolescent brain and its role in preparing a teen for life, along with ways to redirect the attention of a child in the midst of a tantrum will be discussed. Participants will explore methods for cultivating emotional resilience, kindness and compassion in their children. Parenting by all standards is challenging.
In this course, participants will have an opportunity to listen deeply and and with full attention to their children and to create new and healthy ways of responding to the demands of parenting
The event is $299.00 early bird, $330.00 after 11/12.
