All parents endure stress, but studies show that parents of children with behavioral and emotional problems as well as disabilities such as ADHD, autism, and learning differences experience depression and anxiety more frequently. Mindfulness practice has been shown to reduce stress as well as increase attention in both adults and in children. In this class, parents will be introduced to mindfulness practices as a way to not only manage their own stress but to be more effective parents through using mindful parenting strategies. $300 per individual/or couple.
