Many parents report that fewer outside activities for kids and increased work at home while caring for children is causing increased stress, worries and even depression. Mindfulness is a great tool to help parents and children find that calm center that lets us enjoy peaceful, quality time together. Bring the kids to this class where we’ll try out some playful yoga, breathing, and brain calming activities that families can practice every day. 

This class will help you and your children: 

● Gain strategies to calm yourself in the moment 

● Reduce overall stress, anxiety, and depression 

● Use play to connect with each other in happy ways

Solutions Series Library of parenting videos available on demand Handouts

Challenges & Solutions

Our Solution Series Libraries are developed around a specific parenting challenge. Each Series includes a collection of hand-picked, easily digestible (15 min+/-) videos which unlock a key piece of the parenting puzzle. Read our summary of this Series below then click on each lesson to access the class description, video, handouts, and information about our Expert(s). 

What is most delightful and sometimes maddening about children is that they are right here in this moment. They try to bring us into the present, but we often resist – cell phone in hand, shopping list in mind, eyes on the road to the future or worrying about the past. When we spend a lot of time on “auto-pilot,” life begins to feel empty and our relationship with our children can suffer. This series is focused on the meaning of mindfulness, why it is important and explores ways you can bring it into your life right this minute. In this library of classes you will learn ways to:

  • Apply strategies to respond effectively to stress in the moment.
  • Teach these practices to children, from toddlers to high school students.
  • Apply tools to use when children demonstrate challenging behaviors.
  • Make healthier choices with your time and energy to increase family connection
  • Reduce overall stress, anxiety, and depression
  • Use play to connect with each other in happy ways
