    Mindfully Relaxed Parenting

    Today’s parenting is stressful. School testing, social media, bullying, vaccinations, just to name a few of the stressors. An answer for this stew of concerns is mindfulness.
    Mindfulness is often thought of as an individual practice to help alleviate stress and live a happier life. In addition, new studies are demonstrating when mindfulness is applied to parenting the results can be dramatic for both the parents and children.

    Perfectly Here is happy to announce a six-week class on Mindful Parenting. Participants will practice mindfulness meditation, learn the tools of mindfulness and how those tools can be applied to everyday parenting challenges. Applying the methods of mindfulness when engaging children includes mindfully listening, understanding the coping strategies of their children, and reflecting on positive and negative parenting practices.
