I came across this viral article on Facebook: School Replaces Detention With Meditation and Has Astounding Results by Puja Shah and it sparked my interest. I posted this article and a question to the Sincerely, Mrs. Mommy Facebook Page,
“Imagine trying something like this at home with your children? Do any of you practice yoga, mindfulness, or meditation?”
Low and behold a long time friend Tyeisha Duhart replied to my question:
“Yes, yes and yes lol to all of it! I just say it’s mindful/conscious parenting and it was my way of life that just permeated my parenting style and even with other children I come in contact with, I find that approach to be more useful and effective than conventional methods … I could go on and on lol”
Ding Ding Ding!
For every parenting style, there are a million other opinions on which is the best. My recent prayer has been to parent smarter not harder. How can I parent in a way that my children learn to be wise with their decisions, emotionally intelligent, respectful and kind human beings? It seems like a lot to ask.
I wanted to learn more about Tyeisha’s style of Mindful Conscious parenting. So, I invited her to the podcast and she accepted!
This episode turned out to be a great eye opener, and thought-provoking on the way I would like to approach parenting. Tyeisha explains what Mindful Conscious parenting actually looks like with little children and even how she’s used it with her 9-year-old nephew, and the positive effect it has had on him.
