Mindful Communication Techniques for Parents
Wednesday, Oct. 2, 8:30-10am or Sunday, Oct. 6, 1-2:30pm
Presented by Adacelis Perez

In this one-hour and a half workshop, Author and Certified Life Coach, Ada Perez shares mindful communication techniques to become a more calm parent. Stress is no longer reserved for adults. The advancement of new technologies, texting and emails and social media, have catapulted children into a more stressful world, their parents often finding themselves increasingly worried about their children. An increasing amount of information, and peer pressure along with stress caused from family situations, can affect our children on a daily basis.

What can a parent do? Through an introduction of the concept of mindfulness (the art of being more present), Mrs. Perez shares advice to parents so they can enjoy more calmness and harmony in their daily routine, promoting the importance of self-exploration, as well as spending time reading to our children at night, saying a nightly prayer, and starting our days with a sense of gratitude. Mrs. Perez will offer tools to effectively communicate with children in this modern era so that parents can help children understand the connection between thoughts and emotions. A 15-minute guided meditation, or a contemplative prayer and a guided journaling exercise is included in this program.
