Mindful Parenting

Have you ever said to a kid, “Why don’t you just calm down?!” Of course you have; we all have! Being able to “just calm down” is actually a skill called self-regulation that requires a part of the brain called the prefrontal cortex. However, that part of a child’s brain doesn’t completely develop until he or she is in their early twenties. In addition, it doesn’t just develop in positive ways on its own; instead, optimal development is completely dependent on a child being raised in a warm, loving language-rich home environment.

This interactive training will explore mindfulness activities for kids, and the type of language parents and teachers can use to foster children who will succeed academically, socially, and emotionally.
