Here is a quick preview of Susan Greenland’s talk from the FREE online Positive Parenting Conference.
In this talk titled How to Be More Mindful and Take Kids Along on the Ride, Susan and I discuss:
- What mindfulness is, and why it is important, particularly in the busy lives we lead
- How mindfulness isn’t necessarily about sitting still and how mindful games can help our kids (and us!) quiet the mind and increase the focus (among other things)
- Several different mindfulness games we can learn, and then teach our kids!
From Dr. Greenberg’s talk earlier in the research-guided parenting track, we know that mindfulness can be a powerful antidote for stress. In this talk we take it a step further and see how through mindful games we can teach mindfulness skills to our kids starting at a very early age. Whether you already practice mindfulness, or you’re simply curious, this talk is packed with great ideas. Don’t miss it!
