Title:  How to talk to your children mindfully so they will listen
Synopsis: As parents, are there times when you find yourself feeling frustrated because your child is not doing what you have instructed? And are there times when your child tells you “you are not listening to them”. Communication is an important day-to-day functioning and it is also an area which we tend to overlook because of a “mind-full” mind. This sharing aims to provide effective communication strategies and exploring mindfulness practice into parent-child communication.
