Mindful Moments is a program that supports kids ages 8 to 12 and their parents/caregivers. This program teaches families mindfulness skills. Mindfulness comes in many forms. It’s almost like different flavours of ice cream. There is mindfulness for yoga, mindfulness for relaxation, mindfulness to help with academic performance and mindfulness for depression and anxiety. There are many more flavours. Mindful Moments focuses on two flavours. We focus on how to apply mindfulness to parenting AND we teach kids mindfulness skills to manage strong emotions. We serve these two flavours to families so that parents and kids can build strong relationships and to prevent the onset/development/build-up/use of challenging behavior in the family and in kids down the road. To provide examples, kids will learn how to notice a strong feeling without doing something disruptive. Parents will learn how to apply mindfulness to bed time and home work routines. Parents will learn different strategies around discipline that don’t involve yelling. Kids will learn how to talk to an adult when they are having a really strong emotion. Learning and using mindfulness skills will help parents kids get along better and solve problems without the use of unhelpful behaviors. Mindfulness (in general) is helpful for just about everybody but our program’s approach to mindfulness works best for kids and parents who want to build stronger families and learn skills to deal with strong emotions. We teach mindfulness in a group setting (with talking and activities) and we ask kids and parents to practice using the mindfulness skills in between sessions.
