This inspiring presentation is highly applicable to clinicians working with families, as well as for parents, parents-to-be and grandparents. Share with your clients how parenting with mindfulness can enhance the wellbeing of children and parents alike, and bring greater empathy, acceptance and respect for each child’s unique being into family life.
