Our solutions for every need - creating more resilience, mindfulness and happiness one child at a time
Workshops for Parents and Educators
Parents are being pulled in many different directions with high expectations and demands from their children, schools, workload, families, and friends. They must follow certain standards or else they are not doing a good enough job, and also, they must attend to their day-to-day obligations on time.
The responsibility of being a “good parent” is not the only thing that weighs on our parents now and days; they must have successful careers, beautiful homes, and go on yearly vacations, contributing to their demanding financial burdens. Today’s parents carry stress on their bodies and minds from the moment they wake up until the last light turns off in the house.
Mindful Monkeys brings a compassionate and practical program with mindful techniques for parents to practice self-care by integrating daily rituals into their home routines. . Parents will learn to ease their day, by finding moments through the day to stop, center, and breathe. That practice will enable them to remain on their executive part of their brain, which in turn will help them react to their daily situations in a wiser, kinder, and more compassionate way. The goal is for parents to model calm and patience while building stronger connections with their kids.
A growing body of research done by Yale Center for Emotional Intelligence along with Collaborative for Social-Emotional and Academic Learning found that the five most common feelings shared among 5000 teachers were: anxious, fearful, worried, overwhelmed, and sad.
Our teachers carry double responsibility, from their life demands to teaching and meeting the expected curriculum for the grade that they teach. Additionally, they also have to deal with anxiety-induced emotions during testing time.
If our educators burn out, how can they successfully perform the most important job for our kids?
Mindful Monkeys equips teachers with techniques to incorporate mindfulness practices into their everyday routines at home and in the classroom. During this workshop, they will learn to center themselves to access the executive function of their brain and remain calm throughout the day.
