Webinar: Using Mindfulness With Children of All Abilities to Keep Connections Strong
All children need for their parents, caregivers, and educational professionals to “show up” and ensure they feel safe, seen, soothed, and secure. All children benefit when caregivers recognize and reduce stressors (big and small). This is because young children need our help learning how to self-regulate (which is about dealing with stressors not self-control). Our job in supporting children mindfully is to remain calm, even in the middle of a storm, to reduce stressors across the daily routine, and to help children process big emotions. When our caregiving efforts aim for connection over compliance, personalization over standardization, and building communities over creating competition, we can help all children thrive.
During this very timely webinar, we’ll explore how all caregivers (parents, teachers, therapists) can embed mindfulness into their daily routines and activities to meet the needs of children, including those who are on IEPs and/or who may struggle with self-regulation skills (e.g., attention, interaction, recall).
