Mindfulness comes in many forms and can be simply defined as paying attention to the present moment on purpose without judgment. With all the distractions in our world, this simple task can become challenging at every turn. In this series, parents will learn how the “Protective” and “Thoughtful” brain can influence behavior patterns in children and how age, experience, and environment can impact their ability to regulate emotions. Parents will explore the intent and purpose behind mindfulness and explore various mindfulness strategies to help strengthen your child’s capacity for self-regulation and present moment awareness.
