Mindful Support

We believe in supporting the whole child, that includes supporting the parents, families and caregivers in their quest to provide more mindfulness within their homes.

When we say we want to support families in providing more mindfulness within the home we don't want this to be a stressful experience. Our goal is to provide mini tips to help connect you to the present moment, experiencing life now using mindfulness based techniques.

The Power of Positive Self- Talk

The words and phrases we tell ourselves have a huge impact on our mental health, our confidence, and our self-esteem.

 

Teaching children how to use their inner voice to speak kind words and think kind thoughts about themselves can encourage and empower them to see the positive in tough situations, learn and grow from their mistakes, bounce back when they fail, and work through touch emotions.

 

Using affirmations statements daily can help children develop a growth mindset by shifting their words and thoughts from “I can’t” statements to “I can” statements.

"I Love All The Pieces Of Me"

Creative Art Experience

A creative expression experience that encourages children to reflect on the qualities they love about themselves. Ask your child to think of 4 things they love about themselves. We also encourage connecting with your child and sparking a conversation about the importance of showing themselves love through their thoughts, words and actions. After completing this experience, hang your child's creation on a wall as a daily reminder to love themselves!
