Mindful parenting aims to enhance your emotional connection with your child. It is intended to facilitate your self-awareness, mindfulness and intentionality in responding to your child’s needs.
We also know from emerging research that a parent’s capacity for self-awareness through mindfulness practices is a strong predictor of secure attachment in children.
This has implications for children’s mental health and their well being as they develop through the lifespan. This particular group will help parents learn how to apply the principles of mindful parenting through reflective, mindful practices that promote interpersonal and intrapersonal attunement.
Often the times children need parental acceptance and love the most are, inevitably, the times when it can be hardest for parents to give.
Through developing our capacity for mindful insight, the ability to be present and awake in the moment, no matter what difficulties arise, we are able to connect more fully with our children.
