Mindfulness for Children

Techniques of mindful awareness can help children learn to pay closer attention to their thoughts, feelings and emotions. Learn ways to help children reduce stress and anxiety to enhance their well being. Explore what the research says, get ideas for mindfulness activities and explore children’s literacy that supports mindfulness practices.

Extension Extras Parenting Hour is a free online series of parenting workshops that provides guidance for parents of young children as they navigate the joys, challenges and concerns of parenting.

Certificates for participation are provided upon completion of the class.

Participants have the option to attend and actively participate via computer, or an app on a tablet or smartphone. Attendees can also listen to the presentation via phone (by calling in). Those who choose to call in must contact the instructor for directions on how to be eligible for a certificate.

If multiple people in the same location want to participate in the webinar and need certificates, they have to join the webinar separately or contact the instructor for special instructions to each receive a certificate.
