As part of Mindfulness Matters Week, a mindfulness parenting section will be held Tuesday, Oct. 27, from 1 to 2 p.m.
Laurie Cunningham and John Cunningham will present a virtual workshop on how mindfulness practices can affect the ability to parent effectively. Interaction with children/adolescents may be rooted in anger, frustration or other emotions rather than on what is needed to parent effectively in the moment. The practice of mindfulness teaches us to be aware of these feelings within ourselves and gives us the capacity to not be driven by them.
This session will cover the foundations of mindfulness as applied to parenting covering basic principles as well as share resources, a short practice, and concluding with a Q&A session.
