This guided meditation can be used by parents to help themselves become less reactive to their children’s behavioral challenges, allowing them to be more present with their children. Use this guide to restore regulation and a sense of calm in stressful moments. This loose script can be adapted to meet your needs.
What we practiced is bringing together the experience of feeling that stress, strain, and tension along with an awareness of your body and how you feel and loving messages of self compassion. Combining those things with this breathing technique teaches your autonomic nervous system that it can move through the strong feelings by using your breath as a tool. We can exercise our mind this way to help pass us through stressful times at home and teach our body to calm down so we can be available to our kids.
