About The Event
Many parents want to be more patient around their children but struggle in the moment to maintain this. Whether it’s a toddler tantrum, stubborn child or difficult teenager, when we are faced with big feelings and challenging behaviour it can feel impossible to remain calm and role model the emotional management skills that we are so keen for our children to learn yet still struggle to practice ourselves.
The skills of mindfulness teach us how to notice our triggers, to be more aware of our own big feelings and then how to manage them so we don’t explode them onto our children or teens and are able to regulate our emotions so we can co-regulate with them.
You will learn the theory and practice of mindfulness- both informal and formal and how to incorporate it into your life and parenting. It’s suitable for parents of children any age from pregnancy up to adulthood and a great way to learn and improve emotional regulation, compassion, listening and creating calm both inside and out.
This is a 3 week workshop where you will be taught the following skills and practices in a small group with other parents who are also keen to develop their own awareness;
• 9 Attitudes of Mindfulness
• Informal Mindfulness Practices
• Formal Mindfulness Meditation
• Noticing thoughts and feelings
• Recognising triggers
• Self-compassion & Non-Judgement
• Practices to bring mindfulness into my family life
• Finding my pause button
• Applying wisdom to my parenting choices
