Introduction to Mindful Parenting

Come and join us for a free introductory session about Mindful Parenting, to learn more about what mindfulness is, how mindful parenting can positively impact your relationship with your children and what workshops will be available at LCIS in the coming months!

  • Mindful Parenting

Did you know that mindfulness may also help improve the well-being of others in our lives, in particular, that of our children, if we truly practice it? Mindful parenting is in fact a lot more than just “parents smiling a lot”; it’s about being reactive to another's emotional needs and moods, and the emotional consistency in we need in the interaction with our children.

These are the three key factors:

1.          Noticing your own feelings when you’re in conflict with your child,

2.          Learning to pause before responding in anger,

3.          Listening carefully to a child’s viewpoint even when disagreeing with it.

These skills potentially help preserve the parent-child relationship, while also providing a positive role-model of how to handle difficult situations.

Analyses for example showed that parents who reported more mindful parenting engaged in more positive and less negative parenting behavior, which was then linked to more positive behavior in their kids, meaning less anxiety, depression, and acting out.
