An Introduction to Mindful ParentingParenting often takes a lot more stamina and skill than first-time parents realize. That’s why some parenting self-help book classics remain popular, even decades after they were first published.

Although the study and practice of mindfulness are becoming increasingly popular in both scientific research and pop culture, there are relatively few resources online exploring the mindfulness of parenting in a consistent, accessible way.

Mindful Parenting, with Carla Naumburg, PhD, LICSW, will fill that gap.

Carla is a clinical social worker, writer, and most importantly, a mother to two young daughters. You can learn more about her here.

The blog will explore mindfulness in the context of parenting, including Carla’s own personal stories, ideas for daily practices, and ways to teach mindfulness to children. The blog will also review relevant research and books. The blog may address broader issues from time to time, but always with a focus on mindfulness and parenting.

Please give Carla a warm Psych Central welcome over on her blog now!
