Every parent lives in a busy and highly distracting world. Smart phones, flat screens, and email tones, information and requests come from every angle. Your kids’ attention is equally splintered, from tablets to text messages. The modern world challenges our family’s ability to be present, to be mindful.
A mindful parent is present in the moment with their family. A mindful parent relates to their kids and understands their expressions, both verbal and non-verbal. A mindful parent navigates everyday conflicts and stress in a way that lets them enjoy the journey that is parenthood. Based on dialectical behavior therapy, or DBT, we help parents, no matter how frustrated, exhausted or simply confounded, become more emotionally adaptive by applying evidence-based training to everyday parenting scenarios.
You are, after all, your child’s first teacher. What you do and how you do it has a cascading effect on your children. As you become more mindful – patient, centered, empathetic – they will too.
Appropriate for parents of any age children
