Compassionate Caregivers

a Conscious Parenting Discussion Group

Conscious parenting is a practice that focuses on awareness, connectedness, and mindfulness. This is a parent-led group for parents, caregivers, and educators who wish to learn more about the topic.

Conscious parenting is a practice that focuses on awareness, connectedness, and mindfulness. Conscious caregivers try to examine what’s motivating their own behavior, rather than leading in an authoritarian or permissive way, that might come from the traditional mindset that says, “what can we do to get this/these kid(s) to be respectful, or clean their room, or share?” Conscious parenting believes everyone is good inside and that behaviors are a symptom of feelings that need care or conversation. We will use current scholarship about conscious non-coercive methods to help each other begin the work of becoming conscious care givers. This is a space for parents, caregivers, and educators interested in learning more about this practice. This group will be facilitated by a parent, not an expert or professional in the field.
