Positive Parenting Workshop or Keynote

As parents we are often juggling many things, and competing demands can mean that we are too busy to be truly present with those we love most – our family. Consequently we can feel stressed coping with day-to-day events common to families.  Our Mindfully Positive Parenting Program teaches parents how to cultivate an awareness of how they interact with their world. Learn how to pay attention to what is important and let go of what isn’t. Make changes to promote engaging and rewarding family relationships.

Mindful parenting encourages us to listen with our full attention, reducing the pressures and distractions of work and other demands. To develop nonjudgmental acceptance of ourselves and our children. To increase our emotional awareness and compassion for ourselves and our children.

Participating in our Mindfully Positive Parenting Program you can expect:

  • To develop a closer relationship with family members, especially your children.
  • Respond to situations according to your values, rather than reacting to children’s behaviour.
  • Become more compassionate and forgiving of your child’s behaviours.

Children of mindful parents have been shown to be healthier, have more positive relationships, higher school performance and are more adaptable and content.
