Being Mindful While Parenting - Thursday, February 25th, 7:00-8:00pm
Parenting is more enjoyable when you are calm. You can achieve this with Mindfulness. Parenting mindfully means parenting in the present moment, non-judgmentally, without the need to react. Join our Mindfulness Practice meetings on the second and fourth Thursday of each month at 7:00pm at the Noah Webster Library Story Room, 20 South Main Street.
These drop-in meetings are for parents who are interested in learning how to be mindful with their children, and are facilitated by Laura Price Wilson, LPC, Parenting Consultant. The meetings start with introductions, followed by a 5-7 min. meditation, a discussion about Mindfulness, how to be mindful everyday and its powerful connection to parenting. Free, no registration required. Sponsored by the West Hartford Public Libraries and Great by 8!
