Journey Foward to a Peaceful and Productive School Year

We never thought we’d be beginning the school year like this…

It was hard when the last part of the school year ended so abruptly, there was confusion with remote learning, and we all hoped there’d be an end in sight. For sure things would be back to normal in a few months. And we are still waiting…

This summer has been hard. We’ve had to get creative, permit more than usual amounts of screen time, and navigate this new parenting paradigm with no north star pointing the way.

For a limited time only, lifetime access to this training is being offered for FREE.

I know many parents who at this point in the summer are counting the days until school starts. There is always excitement for their kids to get back to routine, and out of the house, since summer days are so long; keeping the kids entertained can be exhausting and draining.

 

And this has nothing to do with not loving our kids and loving doing things with them. But we also love getting a break, having routine and getting back to a schedule.

And yet now here we are, getting ready to start the school year, and unfortunately nothing has changed. They aren’t going back, routines will look totally different than ever before. There are some plus sides: no carpooling, making lunches or fussing about what to wear.

But the reality is that this is going to be a hard start to the school year. There’s no getting around it.

Distanced learning, hours in front of the screen and the unknown of how we as parents are going to handle it all is enough to make our head spin and anxiety soar.

For as long as we can tell, this is our new normal.

 

For kids, this is bizarre. For parents, this is more than overwhelming.

 

I’m sure there are so many thoughts running through your head, like probably a few of the following…

  • “This is so overwhelming!”
  • “Are my kids going to learn anything?”
  • “What are we going to do for social interaction?”
  • “Can my kid be in front of a screen all day?

And what about the fears for yourself?

  • “How am I going to survive this?”
  • “How am I going to manage it all?”
  • “When am I ever going to be able to get a break?”
  • “I feel so impatient, I can’t help but be short-tempered.”
  • “How long can I survive this?”

And I’m sure there are many more thoughts and fears…

 

And…

Whatever you are feeling is normal.

There is no rule book to know how to parent during a pandemic.

Until now.

Once you register, you will get immediate access to the training and lifetime access to rewatch as many times as you’d like.

I am hosting a training to give you ten top tools to get yourself prepared for parenting during remote learning.

I want you to feel peaceful, calm and confident in managing a stressful time.

I will walk you through each step, and guide you in implementing them.

This school year is like nothing we’ve ever started before, and so you’ll need to gain a set of tools that you’ve never really needed before.

And I’m here to guide you.

 

Yes, it’s overwhelming. Yes, it’s scary going into an unknown. Yes, it’s normal to feel anxious and overwhelmed.

But guess what?

Your kids are going to pick up on your energy, and if you’re stressed, anxious and overwhelmed, then they will be too.

And, the hardest part?

Stress and anxiety are not conducive for learning.

In fact, they do just the opposite.

When we are stressed, anxious and overwhelmed, it literally shuts down the part of our brain where we learn and retain information, where we have logic and reason, and where our rationality, communication and memory resides.

So you don’t just need to get your anxiety, overwhelm and stress regulated for your own emotional well being, but you need to do it for your kids’ well being as well. You need to role model it to them. Don’t you want to give them the most optimal environment to learn from home?

And these tools extend further than just managing remote learning.

These parenting hacks will help you decrease yelling, ineffective discipline and disconnection.

It is my promise to you that when you learn how to be more mindful, to respond and not react, to come from curiosity and compassion, rather than judgment, your relationship will dramatically improve.

How do I know? Because not only am I a marriage and family therapist, and a mindfulness and meditation teacher, but I am also a mom to two teenage daughters. And when I started practicing these tools, our relationship shifted for the better.

I can honestly say, I don’t raise my voice; we don’t argue, fight or yell. There are no discipline issues. Our home is peaceful, calm and very connected.

And that wasn’t always the case. I didn’t know how to parent effectively from a place of awareness and presence. I wasn’t sure how to talk so my kids would actually listen and more importantly how to set a rule they’d actually follow.

But then I started my mindfulness practice and everything changed. Even my teenage daughters tell me I need to write a book on parenting because they know that I’ve done it right.

And so can you.
