What is Mindful Families about?

Mindful Families introduces the science behind mindfulness and meditation and allows participants to experience several tools and techniques they can apply directly to their daily life. The session also introduces key elements of Mindful Parenting and explores how these mindfulness tools can support parents and carers to be attuned to and responsive to their children’s needs with benefits to their children as well as themselves.

“A mindful parenting approach involves pausing so that you can be attuned to your child’s deeper needs (are they crying because they are hungry, sleepy, scared, or something else?), and respond to them in an appropriate and loving way.” Headspace, 2022

The program covers aspects such as:

"Mindful Parenting is the chance for you to do things with your child without having your attention drawn away from what is happening between the two of you right then and there." Australian Childhood Foundation, 2012
