Thrive is excited to announce our first Parenting Workshop will be starting on Wednesday April 19th from 6:30-8:00. It will be a 5 week workshop where parents will learn practical strategies to parent with more intention in a small group setting. As a preview, we wanted to share Angela’s perspective and the things that she is excited to explore with parents during this exciting workshop!
Top three things I am excited to explore with parents during Parenting with Intention workshop series.
1. What kind of relationship do you have with your child? Exploring and discussing what it's like to parent your child helps to clarify what you're looking for and what areas you would like to strengthen. If you're feeling ineffective, tired, and disconnected from your child; focusing on your intentions in parenting will help you bring about the balance in your relationship.
2. Parent as a coach. Using little moments each day to reframe your role as a coach to jump in and help your child through meltdowns and tantrums. What's working and what's not working? If you're feeling bored or frustrated with the power struggles; gaining a new sense of the "why" behind your parenting decisions will guide you in more intentional parenting.
3. Permission to play! What does the quality time with your child look like? Discussing the intention behind the activities we choose to spend engaging in with our children will help highlight where we are setting our intentions. You will learn how to become more mindful while making an ice cream sundae together, reading a bedtime story, or looking at a tide pool. If you're feeling rushed or overwhelmed; slowing down and practicing mindfulness will help you tune into those intentions and embrace your relationship with your child.
We hope you are as excited as we are to learn more and explore these areas further!
