Mindful with your toddler

parent with ease and connection

Amazing to watch your toddler develop and discover the world. But then there are tantrums or relapses in sleeping or potty training. It can be frustrating, especially when you are low on energy. When you parent mostly on auto-pilot, you get out of balance and start loosing out on the good times.

During Mindful with your Toddler you develop mindfulness within yourself, and in the relationship with your toddler. Mindfulness helps you to attune to your toddler’s needs, to parent with calm and awareness, and at the same time, to take better care of you.  This enables you to show your toddler a healthy attitude towards needs and boundaries, and together you enter a positive upward spiral.

The course has been proven to be effective, and supports the development of toddlers.

In this course you learn:
• mindful parenting
• applying mindfulness in your own life
• reading the needs of your toddler
• deal with parental stress
• create space for you

and you get:
• meditation techniques
• exercises for you and your toddler
• space to share experiences
• background information

Is this course for me?

Mindful with your Toddler is for parents or care-givers and their toddlers (between 18 months and 4 years old at the starting date). The course is designed for people without experience in mindfulness. Because the focus is on the family setting, it is also very valuable for people who already practice mindfulness.

Mindful with your Toddler is for everyone who wants to experience this special period with full awareness. It is especially effective with (parental) stress, feelings of depression, or burn-out related complaints. Because the effectivity of mindfulness is scientifically proven, it is sometimes possible to partially re-emburse the cost with your health insurance.
