The Mindful Classroom: For Parents & Teachers PG09 CourseCatalog/images/new.gif

Learn how you or your student can transition from the 3 R’s of education—reading, ‘riting and ‘rithmetic—to the 3 R’s of mindful education: reflection, relationship, and resilience. A recent American Psychological Association survey concluded that stress is an epidemic for children and families. For students, stress impairs attention, mood, sleep, and learning readiness. For teachers, stress can decrease productivity and creativity, and increase frustration and anxiety. For parents, stress can lead to a parenting style that looks more like a to-do list than an engaged, empathetic, and present relationship with their children. The benefits of a practice of mindfulness include improved attention and focus, self-control, resilience and adaptability, and compassion. Even a little training in mindfulness can lead to a big payoff in the classroom and beyond.
