When we think about the right way to handle parenting it may seem pretty clear, but in the middle of a conflict or emotional challenge it gets more confusing. Real life can bring our idealistic beliefs about how we 'should' be (and how our child 'should' be) into conflict with how things actually are.
If you're struggling to be the parent you want to be, and/or to support your child, join me to build mindfulness-based and emotional skills that help you. We will work on cultivating understanding, connection, self-care, and tools that help you to find your own clear leadership as a parent, to practice both patience and firmness, and to confront and shift unhelpful habits and conditioning leftover from your own childhood.
“What we are teaches the child
far more than what we say,
so we must be what we want our children to become.”
― Joseph Chilton Pearce

Mindfulness offers us simple (but challenging) practices that build the skills we need most as parents, discipline and tenderness. We cultivate them in an interconnected way, embodying a loving sort of presence with ourselves; our thoughts, feelings, and bodies; our children; and life itself.
