This parent workshop is hosted by the Hudson River Park Mothers Group (HRP Mamas), a social and support group for mothers who reside in Lower Manhattan.
Please join Dr. Stephanie Samar for a workshop on how to bring mindfulness into your home. Dr. Samar will provide advice on how to implement mindfulness techniques and teach them to your children. She will also help parents recognize the different ways that kids act when they're feeling anxious, and how parents can respond in a calming and helpful way.
Parents will learn skills to help children stay calm in stressful situations, block out distractions and live in the moment, as well as how to recognize when children may need extra support. You will engage in easy-to-follow mindfulness exercises and have the opportunity to ask questions on the topic. More
