MINDFULNESS FOR CHILDREN: A PARENTING SEMINAR
THIS TUESDAY, FEB 27, 6:30-8 PM IN THE MMR
$5 Suggested Donation / BUY TICKETS
In this parenting talk, co-presented by the Committee to Support Students with Special Needs and the Social and Emotional Experience Committee, our guest speaker will share her expertise on this topic: What is mindfulness training and how can it help my child?
By learning and practicing mindfulness, our children can calm down, reduce impulsiveness, identify their feelings, improve attention, improve body awareness and generally feel better.
Presenter Jane Weedon, P.T.M.S., BFA, MFA, will explain and demonstrate how her unique approach to mindfulness training can help your child and you be healthier and happier.
