Mindfulness helps you to pay attention to the here and now with kindness, openness, and curiosity. Participants will learn to let go of their distracted thinking and refocus their attention on the present in a nonjudgmental way. Mindfulness helps parents and guardians find a new way to respond to the day-to-day stress of parenting, calm their mind, become less judgmental, and be kinder to themselves and their children. Presented in collaboration with Dr. Ann Friedman and Mindful Being Houston.
Parents, guardians, and caregivers of preschool and elementary-age students, and anyone involved in the lives of children.
After attending this workshop, participants will be able to:
- Use their toolbox of mindfulness strategies to reduce stress and improve focus in themselves and their children
- Explain how stress and mindfulness affect the brain
- Express confidence in using mindfulness practices
This webinar will be presented in English with simultaneous Spanish interpretation.
