Between academic pressures, over-scheduled after-school activities, homework and demanding careers, parents today find it difficult just to get dinner on the table. Dr. Kristen Race speaks directly to today’s busy families who make up what she calls “Generation Stress” and presents an alternative – a mindful approach. Drawing on the latest research, Dr. Race shows how mindfulness helps us – and our children – feel happier, healthier, calmer, less anxious, less stressed, and more focused. This humorous and engaging talk provides simple solutions that move us from simply surviving in our family lives to thriving in our family lives.
