About the event

Does your child's emotional rollercoaster leave you feeling drained and lost?

You're not alone! Join this 60-minute workshop and learn how to navigate meltdowns with mindful parenting strategies. Understand the reasons behind toddler tantrums, and discover practical tools to help your little one (and yourself) stay calm and connected.

This workshop is perfect for parents and caregivers of toddlers (or older children who still struggle with tantrums). Join us to learn how you can cultivate more peace and harmony in your home.

No sitter? No problem! Bring your kids with you. Older children and teens can enjoy the library's resources, and your little ones can stay with you during the program.

What Is Mindful Parenting? 

Parenting is fundamentally about how we respond to our children in each moment. Mindful Parenting is the process of intentionally bringing awareness and compassion to each moment and cultivating loving speech and deep listening to promote better relationships in the family. The Mindful Parenting framework follows two main practices: 1) Mindfulness, which helps us regulate our stress response and become calmer and less reactive; and 2) Skillful Communication, which allows us to speak lovingly and effectively in a way our children can hear us.

About the Instructor 

"I am not a perfect parent, and I don't expect you to be one either. I am practicing the Mindful Parenting method and improving my skills every day. With tools to support both myself and my son through difficult moments, our relationship is flourishing. And when I make mistakes, I have tools from this program to forgive myself and make a repair that teaches my son that it's okay to be imperfect and trying to do better."
