If you are a parent of teens or tweens – we see you. The past 2+ years have been a roller coaster of uncertainty, stress, exhaustion, and worry for everyone, and parents have been juggling a myriad of dynamics to keep things afloat.
Bottom line: parenting teens through this pandemic has been tough, and the delights of our role as parents have been tested. How can we support our children in ways that support all of us? Mindfulness offers a way for us to tap into our own inner landscape and be present for what is showing up in our kids and at Calmer Choice, we aim to meet the needs of our community through mindfulness-based education.
“Sometimes it can hard to connect with your teen or tween, even when you know connection is incredibly important to their wellbeing. Calmer Choice wanted to create a space for parents to learn ways to foster that connection and we’re excited to partner with Nové Yoga on a new initiative for our local families.”
In our mission to support the mental health and wellbeing of Cape Cod children and the adults who support them, we are offering a 4-week course for parents of teens and tweens in partnership with Nové Yoga in West Dennis.
The course focuses on ways to bring mindfulness to your everyday life that will support you and your relationship with your teen or tween.
"We are excited to be partnering with Calmer Choice on this program. At Nové, we've witnessed firsthand how critical mindfulness has been to our individual health, especially through the pandemic," said Jitka Borowick, owner of Nové, a yoga and wellness studio in Dennis. "The past two years have been particularly challenging for parents and their children, and we are looking forward to providing them with the skills to reduce their stress and improve their overall well-being."
