Parents – back up

Welcome parents! We’re glad you’re here.  This is a challenging time for us all.  We know you are concerned about your children’s well-being and managing so many competing uncertainties. Mindfulness can help.   Here are a few resources that we hope will support you and your families.

*Turn Worry into Love. Linda just wrote this piece for The Washington Post as a “how to” to support parents and teachers looking for ways to help the children they care about.

*Practice Together.  This is a good time to practice mindfulness with your kids.  For videos you can watch and follow together, please visit our Kids page, here.

Reading our  Peace of Mind Storybooks together can also offer a calm oasis, and each teach a mindfulness practice too.

*Support Yourself.  Would you like to start or deepen your own mindfulness practice? Here are two of our favorite mindfulness apps. Secular, practical and as Dan Harris says, “actionable.”

*Free Coronavirus Sanity Guide from 10% Happier 
*Free Meditations from Headspace 

*Teach Peace of Mind at home.  Lately parents have asked us about teaching Peace of Mind at home. If you have a mindfulness practice of your own, or are willing to develop one with your kids, and if you would like to set aside a 30 minute block every week for a Peace of Mind Class, we’re here to help.  To begin, you’ll need:

1. Peace of Mind Curricula for your age group
2. Guide for Homeschoolers
3. Peace of Mind Online Classes for Educators
4.Support for your own mindfulness practice.

If this sounds like a bit much now, how about just practicing with your children for a few minutes each day?  You’ll find practices that work for kids, adults and families here.
