On Thursday mornings we meet between 9 – 10 am and talk about various aspects of parenting. A couple of weeks ago we talked about Mindfulness, and how it can help us with anxiety and feeling down, and we had a go at colouring in a mandala. We actually managed to stay silent for 10 minutes (even though we were only aiming for 5!) and everyone agreed to feeling relaxed and peaceful at the end. Mindfulness exercises are something that can be carried out by everyone, adults and children, and definitely take some practice as we learn to focus on the moment and our senses, and letting go of our anxieties – which is not always as easy as it sounds!
Last week the session was about resilience, and what we can do to help our children bounce back after things go wrong. This week’s session is about Anger, and helping our children deal with it in a healthy way, so do feel free to join us, or let me know if there is a subject you would like to cover! Everyone is welcome!
