This is a group for parents in the Scottsdale, North Phoenix area who are raising, or wish to raise, their children in a mindful manner. This doesn't mean they are a perfect mom, or they are even trying to be perfect. You don't have to follow any specific parenting style. You are mindful of your children's and your own needs, and respectful of them and their needs. You guide them on their path and honor your own. You can take on a very traditional, main stream parenting style in a mindful way or follow a completely alternative path. Part of mindful parenting is that everyone has their own needs and there is no one size fits all set of rules. You do what works best for you and your family. We are here to provide each other support without judgement. A mindful parent wishes to raise their child to be tolerant and openminded, respectful of themselves, the environment, and others. Our group has playdates and activities for all ages. Examples of events might include playdates at the park, home playdates, library storytimes, visits to museums and zoos, mom and kids lunch, family concerts and festivals, holiday events, classes on gardening and cooking, yoga classes, doing a charity run as a group, parents nights out. Suggestions are always welcome.
