About The Event
JICS Lab School Parenting Series with Social Worker Ellie Lathrop
We all need community and now more than ever. We would like to invite parents and families to join us this academic year for a series of parenting workshops designed to spark discussion, share information and provide helpful strategies.
Mindful Parenting: Cultivating compassion and awareness
We are a year into the pandemic and hopefully seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. And there is also a collective exhaustion. Join us to take a breath and share an introduction on how mindfulness practices can help you as a parent become more present for your children and all of their experiences. Mindfulness has also been shown to support in becoming less reactive or automatic when we are responding to our children. Additionally, mindfulness encourages us to slow down, with compassion and this can lead to improved self-care and more effective parenting.
We will have a 30 min talk that will be recorded and 30 min of open discussion with parents to allow time for questions. The discussion and questions will not be recorded.
We welcome your questions and if you would like to share them in advance, please email Ellie: firstname.lastname@example.org
