MINDFULNESS FOR PARENTS
We are delighted to be working with the Mindful Parenting & Community Project to run a 12 week course in January. This course looks at how we deal with the stress and worry which comes from being a parent or carer. We can learn to notice what happens when we are stressed and how to keep calm when faced with difficulties. Participants will need to attend every week and children will join us for the last 2 sessions. Mindfulness for Parents/Carers supports us to feel more confident about being a parent, manage stress and frustration and talk to and listen to children. You will be able to register for this course from January 2019.
We are really pleased to have a new Parent and Toddler group running at Hannah More! This is on Monday mornings 9.00-11.00. Parents with pre-schoolers are welcome to come along for messy play, songs, snacks and stories - for only £1 per family.
