Parenting is stressful, right? Do you feel like you are rushing from one thing to the next and always multitasking? Do you want to find tools to help you stop yelling and to connect with your kids in more positive ways?
In this ninety-minute workshop, we will explore why we get stressed, discuss the impact of stress on our bodies, minds, and children, and share specific strategies and proven techniques that you can use immediately to reduce your own stress and stay calm.
Led by two Duke-trained integrative health coaches with expertise in helping parents make sustainable life changes, the workshop will give you the opportunity to ask questions and practice recommended strategies. You will leave with tangible tools to help manage stress, parent with more patience and presence, and create a more positive relationship with your children.
