Free Webinar: Mindfulness and Parenting: What’s So Important About This Moment?
Mansfield families and professionals have access to this free service from Peace at Home Parenting through the end of December using our Mansfield Youth Services subscription code “FallMember2017”. Register for a live class or go back and watch one you might have missed.
“When we are not paying attention to the present moment we are literally absent from our own life.” -Michael Baime, MD
What is most delightful and sometimes maddening about children is that they are right here in this moment. They try to bring us into the present, but we often resist – cell phone in hand, shopping list in mind, eyes on the road to the future or worrying about the past. When we spend a lot of time on “auto-pilot,” life begins to feel empty and our relationship with our children can suffer.
This live, online class will focus on the meaning of mindfulness, why it is important and explore ways you can bring it into your life right this minute.
This class is designed for parents of children ages 2 – 12.
Following the class you will be invited to join our private Facebook group in which you will have access to a community of caring parents like you, working to apply new parenting approaches. Our Peace At Home Parenting Facebook community will be a place to share challenges and successes. You will also have ongoing regular contact with Ruth Freeman, webinar trainer, through the Facebook community.
In addition, you will receive access to free monthly “Question and Answer” sessions in which you will be coached in applying the skills you learned in Peace at Home webinars and again you will connect with other parents working to improve skills.
