Summer Survival For Parents - 20 Kids Mindfulness Activities
Love or Hate?
Usually for parents, it's mix of the two (often on a daily basis).
I wanted to be able to offer some of the strategies that have been really helpful in our family. So I have put together;
Parents and Kids Summer Survival Workbook
A lovely 15 page FREE workbook that you can download today. This is a great way to all come together to discuss HOW to work through some of the issues that come up for many parents.
It has 3 topics of practical ideas and techniques to help you work through some of the issues that come up EVERY holiday in my house.
It also includes my free PRINTABLE KIDS MINDFULNESS ACTIVITIES CHECKLIST.
There is also plenty of support over in the Facebook group too.
This Summer is going to be very different from last year, and pressure is on to make the most of it.
This too can lead to overwhelm and feeling one has to 'do it all'.
This workbook will guide you through open discussions with your family and creating a Summer that you will all enjoy.
Your Summer Bucket List
We all have things that we want to do this Summer, so topic one will start with you creating your own family Summer bucket list. You can fill this with lots of kids outdoor activities but of course allow for those rainy days, or just dealing with what to do when the kids are bored with some fun indoor activities for kids too.
Yes, we all know we should deal with them, but we often let things slide, especially during Summer holidays. Topic 2 is how to make it a discussion, so that both kids and parents are aware of the what boundaries will be in place.
A Summer Of Mindful Moments
The workbook will really help you focus on some keys issues that tend to come up over any school holiday, but we also wanted to give you a quick win with 20 ways to keep your kids busy this Summer! Between this list, the printable checklist and the 3 days of tasks, you guys are going to be rocking this Summer!
