Author speaks about mindful parenting in Huntington
Do you feel stressed and frenetic as a parent? Author Kristen Race will talk about how to decompress and manage modern-day family life at 7 p.m. today at the Book Revue, 313 New York Ave., Huntington.
Race has written “Mindful Parenting: Simple and Powerful Solutions for Raising Creative, Engaged, Happy Kids in Today’s Hectic World” (St. Martin's Press, $15.99) to help what she calls “Generation Stress.”
The Colorado resident is a parent of two young children, an expert in family and school psychology and founder of Mindful Life. She covers topics such as bedtime battles and sibling rivalry, and emphasizes what parents can do to change brain patterns, be more relaxed and live in the moment. Tips include what she calls “brain coolers” -- to help families be more peaceful. Mindful activities that she recommends include stargazing, hiking and more.
