Mindful and Positive Parenting


Mindful Parenting

Learn positive and mindful parenting tools for parents.

Positive parenting has a positive impact on children.

A new study that looks at data on three generations of Oregon families shows that "positive parenting" - including factors such as warmth, monitoring children's activities, involvement, and consistency of discipline - not only has positive impacts on adolescents, but on the way they parent their own children. - Source Oregon State University

Children learn how to develop secure and strong relationships, increase self-esteem and engage with their families and peers when parents utilize mindful and positive parenting. By using positive parenting, you're planting a seed for how your own child will parent their children. You’ll learn how to raise a child today to encompass the kind of positive characteristics you’d like in your child as he or she grows.


Do you currently find it challenging to parent through:

  • Whining
  • Tantrums
  • Adjusting to new changes
  • Power struggles
  • Defiance
  • Hitting 
  • Not listening
  • Lack of connection
  • Yelling
  • Biting

If you're raising your hand..you're not alone!

These are common parenting challenges for many parents. And most parents, given a choice, would much rather parent through these without being frustrated. Through Positive Parenting, you learn tools for parenting effectively, with connection to your child, without resorting to punitive techniques.

Fact: Time outs, grounding, and bribes don't work.

Have you ever tried putting a child in time out? And how did that go for you? Most of the time, for more parents, it's very frustrating, especially if you've had to hold that door knob to keep your child in "time-out".

It's also frustrating when you feel that your child knows what you're saying --- but it's choosing to do the complete opposite. And do you sometimes wonder if you're both even speaking the same language? And if you've used bribes before, you'll have quickly learned that you need to up your bribe to keep it "working". Again, you're not alone. A lot of parents are in the similar situation.

Positive parenting, in a mindful way, works.

With Positive Parenting, you'll learn how to parent through these and other situations without using punitive actions. And you'll do so in an effective, connecting and mindful way that will teach your child long-term social and life skills.


The workshop includes:

  • What to do before correcting.
  • How to be kind and firm at the same time.
  • What to do instead of time-outs.
  • The pros and cons of encouragement vs praise.
  • How to handle tantrums.
  • The effective way to give choices.
  • How to validate and learn the belief behind the behavior.
  • How to ask for the kind of behavior you'd like to see.
  • What to do about negative behaviors.
  • Setting up routines that work.
  • Communicating expectations in a way that your child understands.
  • Building trust between parent and child.

About Giselle Baumet

Parenting my four children using positive parenting has been a rewarding and life-learning experience for me. I'm in awe at the ways parenting in a positive and mindful way has resulted in children that are kind, confident and adept at team work and problem solving. Parenting in this way is a journey, full of self-awareness. I've learned so much about myself in parenting this way and so much more about my children. I truly believe that world would be a better place if we all parented in a positive way. - Giselle Baumet
