Youth mental health difficulties are at an all-time high. Toxic stress is negatively impacting our children' developing brains. Learn the 5 myth-busting truths about child mental health differences, difficulties, and disorders. And what you can do about it.
Many youths today are struggling to control their impulses and behaviors. They complain, argue, avoid, or just plain refuse to comply with daily tasks and demands. Learn how you can resolve common parent-child conflicts more peacefully and productively.
Some kids and teens suffer from being highly emotional - high emotional sensitivity, intensity, and reactivity. They may be prone to frequent bouts of anxious ruminations, angry eruptions, or depressive moods. Learn how taking your child's Feeling Temperature can provide helpful clues for what to do - for both you and them!
Neuroatypical kids, especially those with ADHD or ASD, have difficulty sustaining their attention and effort on dull, tedious tasks, consistently and independently. Frustrations arise because they seem "capable" of doing better at schoolwork, chores, morning routines, etc., but just don't keep it together. Learn how Executive Function Coaching can help.
If you are a personal or professional caregiver of children - a parent, grandparent, foster parent, teacher, counselor, paraprofessional, social worker, case manager, healthcare provider, childcare provider, etc. - you are probably finding yourself tired and overwhelmed many days.
We caregivers are focused on giving our children the best care we can. And in today's toxic stress world, that job is exhausting.
We all need time for self-care.
Time for relaxing the body and refocusing the mind.
A quiet time and space for rejuvenation.
You need it. I need it. And we all deserve it. Our kids deserve it too.
When we take better care of ourselves, we can show up as our best selves more often. Better for us. For our families. For our schools. For our community.
We'll meet twice a month, on Wednesday evenings, at my office.
Come as often as you like, whenever you can.
No fees, no hassle, no guilt.
March - 13th & 20th
April - 3rd & 17th
May - 1st & 15th
Remember, it takes a Mindful Village to raise our children with wisdom and compassion. I hope you'll make this commitment to your mental health and well-being, as well as your children.
I sincerely hope you'll join us!
