What Is "Mindful Parenting" Really? Here's Mindfulness in Parenting Simplified! Parenting

When it comes to parenting, the word "mindful" is easily misunderstood. So, what is mindful parenting?

  • Mindful parenting is simply being conscious or aware of how you parent in the day to day. There are two individuals involved, both you and your child. So mindful parenting means being aware of your child’s thoughts, feelings and behavior as well as your own. When we pay attention to these inner and outer communication landscapes, we become more present, more alert and more attentive. We sharpen our day-to-day communication with our kids. Remember, though, that you have a bigger, long-term goal.
  • Mindful parenting is keeping an eye on building an open and lasting relationship with our kids. Nothing is more important to us than this. That is every parent’s true intention, goal, purpose, desire, yearning, longing – whatever you want to call it. And we all want that. If we keep this goal in front of us, as we invest our daily time in parenting during good times and challenging ones, we are golden!

That’s it! Mindful parenting simplified.
