Mindful parenting results in mindful, happy kids

A mindful approach to parenting helps children and their parents feel happier, calmer, and less stressed. This series will aid in managing strong emotions and cultivating compassion, while teaching skills that enhance the parent-child relationship.

Studies show that children whose parents are more mindful are significantly less likely to report being stressed. Practicing mindfulness strengthens pathways in the brain and can change how the brain responds to stress, explaining why people who practice mindfulness have a more positive outlook on life and are better equipped to handle daily stress and anxiety.
