Boost Your Mindful Parenting

Michele Markstrom, LMFT

 Practice being in the moment with your child. Set aside other pressures and slow down enough to notice how your child doing. Deal with one issue at a time.

Act with love and compassion. Recognize this is what your child needs the most from you, even when you need to discipline him. 

Use your breath to calm yourself. Stresses can overwhelm you but taking a few breaths, with intention, can help you be more focused and effective. 

Step back and think about what you need now. Ask yourself what are you trying to achieve and what do you expect from your child in the present moment.

Enjoy your relationship with your child. Take a few minutes to look at the world from your child’s perspective. Sit with your child and listen to what they say.
