Mindful Parenting Workshops

Parents as Partners

The TDSB Parent Partnership Committee on Mental Health & Well-Being invites all parents and caregivers to attend a special presentation on Mindful Parenting.

Research and practice tells us that Mindfulness helps develop: social/emotional learning, resil­ ience, self-regulation,concentra­ tion, self-awareness, kindness and compassion. Learn simple mindfulness practices that can help support the well-being of the whole family including yourself.

This 2 hour workshop will investigate:
o What is mindfulness? – what it is and what it isn’t
o Why be mindful? – the benefits of midnfulness both personally and professionally.
o How to practice mindfulness? – information on both formal meditation practices and practical ways to bring mindfulness into everyday activities. 

The focus will be on providing parents with life skills to:
o Cultivate self-care techniques and practices
o Support for students at home through mindful parenting techniques that enhance academic achievement
o Focus on mental health and well-being for families
o Lessen the negative impact of stress on learning
o Enhance healthy habits of mind and body

Forest therapy is a concept based upon the Japanese practice of shinrin yoku (“forest bathing”), the practice of immersing yourself in nature – or more specifically the forest – and connecting with the forest in a deep, mindful way that allows for inner and outer healing.
The aims of a forest therapy walk are to get you out of your head, to get to know yourself better, and to learn to switch from the busy “doing mode” to a more relaxed being state.
The forest is a retreat from frenzied everyday life and constant electronic presence.  The nature of the forest – its visual green relief, rawness, and natural scents – have real, researched health benefits.  We are naturally wired to be drawn there, to play there!
