I recently worked with Theresa for two Mindfulness and Parenting sessions. Over the two 8-week sessions, Theresa taught our group a variety of mindful techniques and how to apply these strategies to parenting.
Not only does Theresa have such an in-depth knowledge and understanding of the Triple P program, she also has the amazing ability to break it down and apply it to everyday parenting situations. She does so with compassion and understanding for what all parents deal with on an everyday basis.
She has taught me to be a calmer, more insightful parent. In my moments of parenting frustration I now have the strategies to get me through those tough, exhausting situations.
A few weeks ago, in Target with my five-year-old in meltdown mode (I was that mother. All eyes on me!) I immediately turned to all the strategies Theresa had taught us. Instead of reacting, I took the time I needed, applied the strategies I had learned, and responded. The outcome of the situation was so much calmer than it would have been if I hadn’t participated in this course.
She has also taught me to slow down a bit and enjoy what surrounds me. She has taught me to be mindful and appreciate the simplest things in life.
Not only is Theresa an amazing teacher, she is also a wonderful mother. She has been through this just like all of us. She knows the struggles and understands what we go through. She’s right… We shouldn’t have to go it alone. I highly recommend Village Parenting!
