Here is a quick preview of Susan Greenland’s talk from the Positive Parenting Conference 2018.
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!
