Parent Presentations

  • Mindfulness and your Mental Well-Being!

    Wednesday, Dec. 2, 2020 


    This presentation is to focus on your self-care. There is a great deal of stress we all face every day and especially during the Holidays. You will see with practice and strategies learned in this presentation that you will actually have more time, more energy and patience with your teens. 


    "Children soak in and model after the things we do and say so parents have an essential role in modeling and being mindful and skillful! It’s no wonder that the enormity of our responsibilities can lead to feelings of overwhelm, stress, exhaustion, and even inadequacy in our role as a parent, which can negatively impact our health, well-being, and relationships with loved ones. Parents often put themselves last when it comes to caring for the family, because we think that’s how it’s supposed to be. No one taught us anything different."


    "Children cannot be what they can’t see! For your child to experience well-being, it is vital that you practice well-being for yourself. Mindfulness can be a powerful tool that can help you enjoy life and reduce stress!"
