  • Mindful Parenting

    JCDS: 57 Stanley Ave, Watertown
    Sunday, December 17, 2017 - 10:45am to 12:00pm

    with Carla Naumberg

    Parenting can really push our buttons. But what if there was a way to make those buttons a little smaller and less sensitive, a little less likely to set off our four-alarm freak out each time our children poke at them? What if we could just freak out a little less and have a little more fun with our kids? Mindfulness, or the ability to notice the present moment with kindness and curiosity, can help us do just that. In this casual and interactive talk, Carla will introduce the ideas and practices of mindfulness and mindful parenting.

    Carla Naumburg, PhD, is a clinical social worker, writer, and speaker. She is the author of Ready, Set, Breathe:  Practicing Mindfulness with Your Children for Fewer Meltdowns and a More Peaceful Family (New Harbinger, 2015) and Parenting in the Present Moment: How to Stay Focused on What Really Matters (Parallax, 2014).
