Kids In Mind: Teresa on Mindfulness - Part 1 (26 October 2017)
On this week's episode of Kids in Mind, Dr Rebecca Weber talks to Dr Teresa Au.
What are mindfulness and compassion, and how are these concepts relevant for parents? Compassion is not the same as cheesy affirmations or letting someone off the hook. Self-compassion is important for kids to learn, and it's also very relevant for parents, who can be very hard on themselves in unfair and unhelpful ways. Practicing both mindfulness and compassion can help parents to feel less stressed and be more effective and consistent parents.
