The benefits of mindful parenting

Mindfulness has its roots in early Buddhist teachings from 2,500 years ago, but our modern obsession with it began when Jon Kabat-Zinn founded the Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) program at the University of Massachusetts in 1979. And the internet has only exacerbated its trendiness.

According to the American Psychological Association, mindfulness is “a moment-to-moment awareness of one’s experience without judgment.” That might sound simple. It’s not. And taking a mindful approach to parenting is especially difficult, because in our fast-paced, ever-evolving, increasingly challenging world, our to-do lists are mammoth and it’s nearly impossible to get through the day without stellar multitasking skills.
